Happy 60 year wedding anniversary Roxanne and James!

60 years ago today, March 21, 1964. James and I wed after a “courtship“ of two weeks and one day. That is exactly how long we knew each other before we got married. To say our parents did not approve is an understatement. I was a 19-year-old first year law student. James was 23, pretending to go to college in Arizona and did not have an actual job. He did, however, think it was great I was in law school. He was also the only guy I ever met who didn’t think that law school was just a phase I was going through and I would get over it once I got married. He did not blink an eye when I told him “I don’t wash, I don’t iron, I don’t cook, and I don’t clean.” We struggled to build an equal marriage with no role models to follow. We were mostly successful. We raised four wonderful children, enjoy five amazing grandchildren and are looking forward to great grandchildren. He started his own real estate company, and I started my own law firm. Together, we have fostered some 2,000 kittens mostly from ARL of Iowa. For us, love at first sight was real, lasting and pretty terrific. We know how fortunate we have been. We look forward to 60 more years.

Medical Student v. Obstetrician/Gynecologist (2016)

The student had very painful endometriosis. She sought the help of a specialist OB/GYN who suggested that she undergo a laparoscopic surgery to find and ablate the disease. She agreed. During the surgery, the doctor pierced completely through her aorta and she came very close to dying. She required 26 units of blood and 4 hours of emergency surgery. Even after she recovered she was left with a large scar and difficulty pursuing some of her activities. The case was settled for a confidential amount. She now practices family medicine in the northwest.
