I asked how they knew that and he answered, "Because the bladder was full and the posterior area had been chewed out!"

And prn nurse, I have heard the same lecture from the docs about the hysterectomy, which I haven't yet had. But when I read TIREDmidnightRN's story about the body in the parking lot being a nurse it reminded me of the ped who hugged me around the middle and wanted to know what the crinkly noise was...my Depends.
