    Your so right Tweety - and what makes it more interesting is that one day you will have a thought of "hmmmm - haven't seen (insert dx here) for a while" Then BAMMM! You get a run of them. I am not a supersititious person - but working in a hospital is sure makes you wonder!

    We had one at clinical Wednesday. 30, girlfriend sprawled on the foot of the bed, laying across his hips and legs. He had a lap GB 3 SMALL incisions and whne we got him up to walk, he b****** his head off. It hurt, he didn't want to get up, how come we were torturing him?

    I went in to get 1100 vitals one hr after the 50 ft. walk and asked him to rate his pain => 6. B/P was elevated and his temp was 99. I tried to count resp. and listen to apical at same time but he kept holding his breath!!! I told the RN that I got 6-8 on the R but that it had to be more like 16 cause he didn't have any problems complaining and LOUDLY!!

    Anyway, it is good for me to get these pts. early so I will know how to deal with them after I become an RN!!

    I had an 60 something lady in JRC who acted the same way. She didn't want to walk after her knee replacement, didn't like her food, refused to stay in the little dining room and eat with all the other Joint replacement pts. was convinced that her life was over because she didn't have all her original parts.Oh yah, didn't like her recliner chair cause it was a different color and not as nice as everyone else's. Just a regular joy to be around.

    A story that is...not a momma's boy

    I worked with a girl who dated a guy who lived with his mother at 33 years old. She was an RN and was always convincing him he was sick and should stay home instead of seeing Jill. She said she was there to meet him for dinner and his mother gave him two teaspoons of cough medicine in front of her and was ironing his shirt for their date.

    She stopped returning his calls when he casually mentioned that she gives him enemas to "clean him out" and he thought it was ok because she was a nurse

    When I was working on my speech pathology degree, I had asked a NICU nurse how many babies were born with cleft lip/palate during a typical month. She said, not very often, but when they do, they can usually count on having 3 of them at one time.

    Strange things like that usually run in three's.

    LOL

    She also did all of his laundry and cooked him dinner each night...so she was told not to call during "their dinner". I could tell so many anecdotes from that brief affair.

    I know the mother told her that "these days men do not go out into the world until they are 36 or 37"

    Is it stuffy up in that attic Norman Bates????

    Ewww! blaaa! :uhoh21:

    I just finished reading "Tuesdays With Morrie" by Mitch Albom. I highly recommend it.

    Well I live with 2 of these so called momma's boys and its all the fault of the mother. She INSISTS on doing everything for her husband and her son, (my fiancee) In Russia apperently its normal for the men to sit at the table and wait for the food to be put in front of them. EVEN if its sitting on the table 3 feet away from them, they won't move! LAUNDRY? They never heard of it.
    One day my mother in law was going out and she says....Can you serve my husaband while I'm out? My response? :stone

    I could not believe it. Oh no she din't!!!!!!!!! In your dreams!!!!

    Thank gosh we're moving.

    Please serve my husband........sheeesh
