Tutor description

At 65 years old, Henry Blake was in excellent health and enjoying his first year of retirement. Upon returning from his dream trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, he noticed that his left leg was swollen just inferior to the knee. He already had scheduled an appointment for a complete physical, so he knew that in a few days he would be able to have his physician look at his leg. Dr. Strickland had been the Blake family doctor for more than 40 years. Knowing that Henry had planned to do some traveling, Dr. Strickland opened with a question that Henry initially found to be a bit out of the ordinary. “Any chance this swelling showed up after a long flight?” “As a matter of fact it did,” Henry replied. “My gut tells me that you may have a clot in that leg, but we’ll have to have a look at it before we’ll know for sure.”
