    I had an awesome octogenarian patient whose daughters got her a snazzy rose tattoo for her 80th – her biggest regret was not getting one earlier. Her second biggest was that she took her daughters as they wouldn’t let her get the dagger heart mum jobbie she wanted and now planned to get after treatment.
