Nurse Grandma Jolly Whackypants

22 Jun

I have Aggie from Patch Adams as my tech today…  She’s 90 if she is a day and seems to make the Mad Hatter flee into sanity.  She showed up to take my vitals with her own machine – used the one in the room – and left – didn’t write anything down – left her clip board on my bed – left the machine she brought in behind the door…

I am really wondering if she escaped from somewhere.  I haven’t seen her since.  But she sure did write her name big as day, “Doris,” that is, on the board.  Who knows.

Before she left though, she blessed me with the quote of the day:

“Can you shower yourself?  Or you want me to scrub your bits?

My bits are fine, thanks.  And stay away from my spaghetti.

    My friend,
    If you have a minute, please check out this post by my step daughter. It's called Mr. Crossword. the part I'm talking about is towards the bottom of the post. She was working in a hospital at the time (several years ago). I'm so stinking proud of the way she thinks!

    I'm not sure “scrub” is the best word when referring to cleaning your “bits”! Sounds a little painful, although really, how much harm can Methuselah and her scrawny arms really do?
