Things!

Thank you all so much for the emails, IMs, comments, texts, phone calls, etc. You are all fantastic, and your concern means the world to me. I'm doing much better now, and every day I feel a bit more healed.

Because everyone is doing it:


Yeah, I gave into the peer pressure. What of it!?

Also. We got five (count 'em, five) gunshot wounds today in the ER. Here's my favorite.

Nurse: "Sir, have you been drinking tonight?"
Man: "HELL YES I'VE BEEN DRINKING, I'M DRUNK AS SHIT! I GOTSTA PEE!"
Nurse: "Okay, sir, we're going to put this tube in your bladder so you can pee and we can get some urine."

*Later*

Nurse: "Sir, can you rate your pain on a scale of zero to ten, zero being no pain, ten being the worst you've--"
Man: "A TEN, A TEN, OH GOD A TEN!"
Nurse: "Where?"
Man: "MY PENIS HURTS, MY PENIS HURTS!"
Nurse: "Yes, sir, you've got a tube in your penis right now. What about your bottom, where you got shot?"
Man: "I GOT SHOT!?"
Nurse: "Yes, sir, that's why you're here."
Man: "MY PENIS HURTS OH GOD MY PENIS HURTS!"
Nurse: "And your bottom, sir?"
Man: "ZERO PAIN ON MY ASS, BUT OH GOD MY PENIS HURTS!"
Nurse/Me/Everyone Else: *stifles laughter*

Take care out there,
Sam

Hi Sam,

Of course, that episode may be one where I "had to be there" - and of course I wasn't.

I've never needed a catheter but I imagine I'd find it pretty painful, especially if I were already under stress. Guys can be pretty particular about their private parts.

For that matter, not being a woman I wouldn't know how you might feel if, say, the gynecologist mishandled the speculum while working on you. I sure wouldn't hold it against you if you yelled in pain.

I hope the man is well on his way to recovery.

Last but not least, happy blogiversary!
