cheese - page 2

I know that some people aren't going to believe this, but I swear, I am not making this up. After almost 3 years as a hospice nurse I have heard it all (or so I thought.) I have had family members... Read More

    I just got off the phone with your BON and they are looking into this whole cheese fiasco. They said you better have a gouda reason for giving that patient cheese. LOL seroiusly. I thought it worked the other way - cheese has the enzymes to promote a healthy gut. mmmm all this cheese talk has me wanting a snack.

    Cheese gives my husband enough gas to smell up a room. Now, if cheese does kill, he'd better watch it.

    Shay, keep up the good work. It is amazing how 'clueless' (lack of a better word) family can be when someone they love is dying. Death by cheese really cracked me up, however. Very absurd, surreal, and....well.....funny.

    But until tonight I have never, ever been accused of killing a loved one by giving them cheese. You see, cheese causes yeast to grow in the digestive tract, which then causes histimines to form and stops the breathing. She also felt it was necessary to inform me that this will be reported, she didn't know to who yet, but she would be reporting it to someone. I mean, what do you say to that?
    you cock your head, knit your brows and say, "ah.....those nasty histamines...
    and all this time i thought it was the kick-a$$ dose of kcl i had injected."

    There are a lot of distorted perceptions of hospice care out there. Google "Hospice Patients Alliance" for an interesting look at how some people see what we do. Scary stuff!

    Ok, now that I have had a good nights sleep I can laugh about this. I really didn't think anyone would believe that this was said to me. (I should have known nothing would surprise a group of nurses.) On the other hand, this has given me a new way to threaten dear hubby, Grilled cheese for dinner tonight darling?

    I believe. Hallalujah.

    What can you do but apologize at the time and laugh afterwards.

    FYI I found out today that hot tea and that Nutella spread are really, really effective against the cold virus. Just saying.

    Who the heck is she going to report you to? The American Dairy Association?

    Hospice nurses are my heroes.
