The best people are the ones who go first. Dr. Pol has been hit by tragedies one after the year. The last 5 years have been bittersweet for the doctor and we can’t even imagine what must be going on with Kathlene. Losing her husband and now her only son, we hope god grants Kathlene the strength to bear this immense grief. We hope this marks the end of personal tragedies for the good doctor and we look forward to seeing the man in top shape in The Incredible Dr. Pol.
