Happy Doctor's Day!

For a change we can prescribe all the doctors, a day full of smiles on Doctor's day.
This is a forwarded message from my inbox, thanking all the doctors for their service.

Somebody asked “You’re a doctor? How much do you make?”
I replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE”
I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you’re scared ….
I can make your child breathe when they stop
I can help your father survive a heart attack
I can make myself get up at 4 am to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live…  and I will work straight through until 4 am to keep her alive and start the day all over again”
I work all day to save the lives of strangers…
I will drop everything and run a code blue for hours trying to keep you alive”
I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of...
I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure everything that I did for your wife was correct...
I work weekends and holidays and through the night because people don’t just get sick Monday through Friday and during normal working hours
Today I might save your life
How much do I make?
All I know is, “I make a difference.”
