Old ways

I was touched by this story about David Watson, a country doctor in Texas who just won the Country Doctor of the Year award. Here’s the nicest bit:

The night the hospital urgently needed blood for an obstetrics patient, Watson rushed down from his office to donate some of his O-negative, then stayed to call in other townspeople with the right blood type. (He knew who they were.)

Watson is 78 and has been practicing family medicine for 50 years. He still sees 30 patients a day.
