A Story from Dr. Colvard's Medical Missions

This old gentleman, blinded by cataracts, had fallen into a ditch and injured his hip while trying to walk to the clinic where Dr. Colvard was working. When asked before surgery whether he would like to have his hip treated first, the man laughed and replied "I want my eyes fixed first; otherwise, I'll fall down again and break the other hip!"
