When a hip clunk is discovered in the hospital or in the first few weeks of life, you may be instructed to double-diaper: instead of using one diaper at a time to keep the baby clean, you might use two, one on top of another.

Sound familiar to any of you? No one seemed to have any idea as to what to do for me.

Even after all that I still ponder upon how different my life would be if I didn’t choose medicine. The road not taken will always be the ghost that would haunt me in the nights. But as long as I know the road that I am taking is worth the ride, I can smile and say to that ghost ‘I am not afraid of you’.
