Jim’s surgeon’s secretary (for his appendectomy) called him and told him they needed to make another appointment because they “had found something“. Thank G-d I decided to go to that appointment! The surgeon came in and told Jim, “You have appendix cancer and I don’t know anyone in the whole state of Pennsylvania that can help”. He had only seen one case prior to Jim and he, the surgeon, must have been in his 60s.
