Dr. Dad

Growing up in a family of four athletic girls it was always nice when we got injured to have a doctor in the family.   I think we may have taken it for granted when we sprained an ankle to have an immediate diagnosis and a plethora of braces and ace bandages.  We have all been through numerous injuries and so have many of our teammates.   Our Dr. Dad has always been there to not only help alleviate our pain but also any of our teammates that needed assistance.   Still to this day our dad is always willing to come to the rescue with any aches and pains we may have.

My favorite part of my dad's profession was his 'team doc' status at Chico State.   I remember feeling untouchable as my dad flashed his team doc badge and we were quickly ushered into football games. I loved going to football games with my dad.   I felt so special as I sat on the sideline with him and watched him work.  My sister and I would sit on the bench and giggle as watched the athletes spit and our jaws would drop when we heard them cuss.  This was a fun experience I vividly remember.  

For show and tell my dad would come to class and and put a cast on each of us.  He would patiently explain the casting process and how this fixed broken bones.  We had all our classmates sign a message on our cast.  We had the best show and tell in the school! 

No matter what the issue our Dr. Dad is our super hero and has always been there for us in our time of need.
