Army doctor celebrates re-birthday with family, ends in cake fight
An army doctor who suffered brain and spine injury in an attack has a unique anniversary each year. He celebrates the day he woke up after being in a coma for almost a month. This year, he invited his family to the party and had a fun celebration until things took a turn for the worse. His nephew threw a tantrum and said something hurtful to the doctor's niece, who was already upset because of a complicated fracture in her leg. The doctor tried to handle the situation by asking for an apology but his sister disagreed, leading to a cake fight. While the doctor may have been trying to teach a lesson to his nephew, was it worth ruining the celebration? Was he in the wrong for not letting it go and serving the cake? Let's explore the comments and reactions from the community.
