The doc told him that that would have been enough to cause him problems over sixty years later.

Dad was ninety-five last week and thankfully has not had anymore trouble for about three years.
I remember falling asleep in the sun as a little kid and going to church in one of Dad's dress shirts because the blisters were so big and numerous. Christ, how old am I and was I? Mom probably didn't feel like a great parent that day.
