You are reading page 2 of My Life with a Nurse: A Man's Perspective

I married a computer geek who CAN'Thandle being around anyone who is sick. When we were first married he came home spitting nails. Someone hung up on him, his computer program crashed and his color printer didn't work. He snapped at me and said "And how was your day?" I calmly and rather offhandedly told him, "Well after the lady threw up on me it went pretty well." He didn't say another word all night.

Also, the first thanksgiving we were married, I worked 3-11. The floor decided to have a thanksgiving potluck. We invited my husband because he was all by himself at home. Well, as nurses do when they get together they started talking about a patient. It seems this short chubby man on thwe floor had bypass surgery and got very confused afterwards. Since his belly was very round, he couldn't see ANYTHING that was below it. In his confused state he accused one of the nurses of stealing his penis. As another nurse is telling this story I see all of the color draining out off my husband's face. All my husband said when I got home was, "you guys sure have interesting dinner conversations."

After almost 13 years ofknowing me he KNOWS not to ask too many questions.:rotfl:

My favorite line when one of the boys came up to me crying about something "Is there blood gushing out? Is there a bone sticking out? Then you're not hurt, go back out and play." :rotfl:

So when are you going to publish this? This is so good. I gave a copy to all my nursing friends and emailed the link to the ones who didn't live in California!!!! Draping hunks of cotton......things that would gag a maggot!!! give yourself some credit. This should go into the archives. It's so true.

I am still laughing....

I used to tell my youngest son who would call me for all sorts of time consuming reasons at work: "unless the house is on fire, or you are on fire, or you or your brother are bleeding to death, DON'T CALL ME AT WORK!!"

My oldest once made the very lethal mistake of telling his drill sargent at Ft. Benning, "my mom is an ICU nurse, and she is way tougher than you, SIR!"

He was doing pushups the rest of the day!!

I know...we really are a unique and wonderful bunch....

As the Bible says, "fearfully and wonderfully made!"
