[PHP]I"m going to inject this under your foreskin,you'll feel a little pinch" His eyes got quite a bit larger.He clearly wasn't as intoxicated as I'd [/PHP]
I have one more (there are really too many to count......).
I was working in ICU and we had a very large 5 year old child with a trach. This is back in the 70's. The ENT doc was going to change the trach for a smaller one, and the child had other ideas. Now this ENT doc was about 6'3'' with a short fuse. And this large uncooperative child had ideas of his own.
All the other staff were involved with a new admission who wasn't doing so well. I was incharge and the other nurses were fairly new and inexperienced. I was determined all would go well and get back to the critical patient. Miss Efficiency and all. Miss Responsibility.......Miss This is MY Shift and ALL will go WELL..........
uh huh. Should have called me Miss Hap.
Things did NOT go well and the suction was ripped off the wall and the child fought and yelled and the doc stomped and acted like the child..........it was lovely.....
Determined to finish this.....I tackled this child holding the flashlight in one hand ( doc didn't like the lighting...) and the childs hands in the other.........I had my head towards the childs feet, arm wrapped around his legs....and I reached up with DETERMINATION and clung to this charming little beings sweaty hands.............so proud of myself and as he pulled away I tightened my grip.......
All was quiet.........when a deep voice said "Excuse me. But this would be much easier if you would let go of my hand."
