    Tech: "You need to come see Mr. _____."
    MD: "What's going on with him?"
    Tech: "I don't know, but his nurse said she needs you."
    MD: "Is there an issue?"

    I think it's great that you're a doctor and you're enjoying this forum with nurses but is there a particular reason why you hang with us? No harm meant, just curious. I think I'd like working with you too!

    LOLOL! I'm sorry, had to comment on this. I get so sucked in to those dang paternity lie-detector shows he does! My ex was here Christmas morning and I had it on, he was like "HOW THE HECK CAN YOU WATCH THIS CRAP?!" I have no idea, but I always do!

    Thanks for the laugh!
