Woman accidentally meets deceased father’s best friend

It’s one of those stories that gives you goosebumps.

A college student struck up a conversation with the doctor treating her after a surgical assistant and realized that she and the man she had never met had a lot in common.

Twitter users and podcasters @erica_wenger posted the story this week of her twin sister’s recent encounter.

Wenger said it was her sister who had the conversation with the doctor, and when asked where he went to medical school, the doctor replied, “The University of Arizona.”

Before we go any further, you need to know that the sisters lost their father even before they were born, so they never had the chance to meet him.

When the nurse’s doctor told her he was graduating in the class of ’88, the woman mentioned that this was the same school and year that her father graduated.

The doctor asked for his name, since he probably knew it if they were both at the same medical school at the same time.

When the nurse said his name, the doctor “dropped his instruments and immediately froze.”

The doctor who treated him knew the man had died, but had no idea his widow had given birth — or even that she was pregnant.

Wegner goes on to say that her sister and the doctor who treated her shared stories about her father, exchanged a few tears, and then told the woman something very heartwarming.

The doctor said that her father was one of the reasons he chose gynecologic oncology.

It appears that the twins’ father died of a rare cancer – female origin – which forced his best friend to break into this field.

Wenger ends her contribution with the question on everyone’s mind: what are the chances that these two people, in the same operating room, will start a conversation that I’m sure will bond them for the rest of their lives?

One of the reasons I try to meet and chat with people everywhere I go is because I want to see if I can connect us in 6 degrees or less.

Sometimes, like in this case, these two random strangers were VERY connected through a single person.
