Joe's Diner August 23 - 08/24/20 02:35 AM

You can measure distance by time. "How far away is it?" "Oh, about 20 minutes." But it doesn't work the other way. "When do you get off work?" "Around three miles." —

~Jerry Seinfeld~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~


It was my first night caring for an elderly patient. When he grew sleepy, I wheeled his chair as close to the bed as possible and, using the techniques I’d learned in school, grasped him in a bear hug to lift him onto the bed. But I couldn’t clear the top of the mattress. So I grabbed him again, summoned all my might, and hoisted him onto the bed. When the night shift nurse arrived, I recounted what had happened. “Funny,” she said, looking puzzled. “Usually I just ask him to get in bed, and he does.”
~~

My 85-year-old grandfather was rushed to the hospital with a possible concussion. The doctor asked him a series of questions: “Do you know where you are?” “I’m at Rex Hospital.” “What city are you in?” “Raleigh.” “Do you know who I am?” “Dr. Hamilton.” My grandfather then turned to the nurse and said, “I hope he doesn’t ask me any more questions.” “Why?” she asked. “Because all of those answers were on his badge.”
~~

As a brain wave technologist, I often ask postoperative patients to smile to make sure their facial nerves are intact. It always struck me as odd to be asking this question right after brain surgery, so a colleague suggested I ask patients to show me their teeth. Armed with this new phrase, I said to my next patient, “Mr. Smith, show me your teeth.” He shook his head. “The nurse has them.”
~~

Before heading off to Mexico on vacation, my daughter asked her doctor for medicine to ward off any potential stomach troubles. Instead, the doctor prescribed bottled water and electrolytes, “which have simple sugars and salt.” My daughter liked that. “Oh,” she said, “like a margarita?”
~~

Feeling ill, my supervisor went to a nearby doctor, who ordered an EKG. Upon reading the results, the doctor declared that my boss was suffering a cardiac arrest and called an ambulance to whisk him off to the hospital. There, doctors performed their own tests. But those came back negative. After some quick sleuthing, the problem was solved: The first doctor had read the EKG upside down.
~~

Fred: Can you tell me about that new do-it-yourself orthodontist?

Ted: Brace yourself.
~~

After my wife accidentally swallowed my prostate medication, our daughter called a pharmacist to ask whether there was any cause for alarm. He replied, “Only if she starts hanging out at hardware stores and buys a lot of power tools.”
~~

I was in the emergency room when a young male nurse came in to ask routine medical questions.

Nurse: Have you ever had a hysterectomy?

Me: Yes.

Nurse: When?

Me: 2011.

Nurse: Do you think you could be pregnant?

Me: Do you think this is the right career for you?
~~

Our doctor’s office called to let my husband know that the results from his blood tests came back and he was just fine. That didn’t suit my husband.

“What’s my cholesterol level?” he asked.

“Mr. Crocker, you are just fine,” insisted the nurse.

“Still, I’d like you to mail me the results.”

A few days later, he received a postcard from the doctor’s office. It read, “Mr. Crocker, you are just fine!”
~~

My paramedic team was called to an emergency. Before we took the patient to the hospital, I had a question for his wife. “Does your husband have any cardiac problems?” I asked.

“Yes,” she said with a note of concern. “His cardiologist just died.”
~~

Harry went to his doctor on Thursday to review his test results. The Doctor told him I have good news and bad news.

"Good news is you have 48 hours to live," he said to Harry. "Bad news is I should have told you on Tuesday."
~~

A doctor told his patient, "There's good news and bad news. The bad news is, you have partial short-term memory loss." The patient said, "Oh no, Doctor. What's the bad news?"
~~

I’d never had surgery, and I was nervous. “This is a very simple, noninvasive procedure,” the anesthesiologist reassured me. I felt better, until … “Heck,” he continued, “you have 
a better chance of dying from the 
anesthesia than the surgery itself.”
~~

When my three-year-old was told 
to pee in a cup at the doctor’s office, he unexpectedly got nervous. With 
a shaking voice, he asked, “Do I have to drink it?”
~~

My wife, a phlebotomist at the Denver VA hospital, entered a patient’s room to draw blood. Noticing an apple on his nightstand, she 
remarked, “An apple a day keeps 
the doctor away, right?” “That’s true,” he agreed. “I haven’t seen a doctor in three days.”
~~

“Patient in to ER at 0400 with no complaints: ‘I have been having chest pain for 4 months but I am not having chest pain now. The reason I’m here now is because I heard that 4am is the best time to come cause there are not that many people.’ ”

“Had a woman call 911 because she ‘had déjà vu in the shower and got nervous.’”

“Got a frantic call from a woman who claimed she had overdosed and needed help immediately.

We arrive on scene, and she hands us an empty mint container, saying she took them all. That night she learned that you cannot overdose on mints.”

Source: Overheard in the ER
~~

A therapist has a theory that couples who make love once a day are the happiest. So he tests it at a seminar by asking those assembled, “How many people here make love once a day?”

Half the people raise their hands, each of them grinning widely.

“Once a week?”

A third of 
the audience members raise their hands, their grins a bit less vibrant.

“Once a month?”

A few hands tepidly go up.

Then he asks, “OK, how about once a year?”

One man in the back jumps up and down, jubilantly waving his hands.

The therapist is shocked—this disproves his theory.

“If you make love only once a year,” he asks, “why are you so happy?” T

he man yells, “Today’s the day!”
~~

My mother was rushed to the 
hospital following a serious tumble.
There the staff placed a band around her wrist with large letters warning: Fall Risk.

Unimpressed, Mom said to me, “I’ll have them know I’m a winter, spring, and summer risk too.”
~~

Good evening everyboomie. wave2

Terrific Tuesday ya'll puppy

Rainy day is forecast. It is for sure overcast, but I did get in my run without needing to use the umbrella I lugged along.

Came home to son cooking bacon happydance Why else do I run except so I can eat bacon? I literally could happily eat bacon at every meal. I don't, but I could.

Now cleaned up and sitting and surfing and sipping. Always a good thing!

Have a great one wavegirl

Re: Joe's Diner August 23 - 08/26/20 04:28 PM

Wonderful Wednesday to you all puppy

I am back from my run in the park. Little rough today as I tripped 2ce within 30 seconds. Thought for a minute the Good Lord was trying to tell me today was not the day to run. Then I decided he was actually telling me to tuck in my shoe laces which I had always worried about a bit.

Tucked them in and finished my 5 miles staying on my feet.

Home now to sit and sip and surf. Hopefully, playing Dnd with son/g'son this afternoon. We shall see.

Mary, prayers for your family. Gentle hugs!

Hello gang puppy

We made it to Friday. I had a great run at the park. Home, cleaned up, and sitting and sipping for a sec. Not sure what is going on with the rest of the day, but think I might be playing DnD with g'son. That kind of depends on his mood and son's mood. Not a good game to play when folks are moody.

Think it's supposed to be g'kids weekend to go to mom's but that changes sometimes, so we shall see.

Have a great day all wavegirl

All right! Home from a great run... up and down and all round. Hot and Humid, of course, but it's AL in August. At least it wasn't Sunny! I usually like sunny, but not while I'm running in Aug.

Home now, cleaned up, sitting and surfing and sipping. Will do some dinner prep once I post and then get back to my read-a-thon.

Hi Soot Sunday was a bit busy but it was a good day thanks, we actually both had a good night's sleep....Today was a slower day & more quieter - we both needed a recharge hehe

Well I certainly hope you do/did get that day of rest, how about reading a new book something different....I don't read much but according to my Mother - Clive Cussler has good books! One is Journey of the Pharaohs.

Yes the weekend is always better except for the internet - worse on the weekends (:

TaintedFury and Soot I loved reading Clive Cussler. It's been a while but books like Raise the Titanic, and Saraha were a lot of fun. bravo

Ana Pepper enjoys road trips, as long as I don't make a sharp turn and tip her travel cage over. oops lol
