I gotta say, I have been to a few rodeos and my feeling is, "You just never know!"
Several years ago we had a fellow come into our ER that I would have sworn was totally drug seeking. He c/o abdominal pain and then said, "I need a shot." The I would ask him anotehr question and he said, "I need a shot." He always came back to his premise statement, "I need a shot."
So, what would anyone think? Drug seeking, right? Well anyway, we sent him for x-ray and he had quite a bit of stool, but not by far the worst I had seen. Anyway, the doc says, "Give him a couple of soapsuds enemas." I almost said something about going to a plan "B" but it was late and slow and I thought what the heck, at least when he meets up with his other drug seeking buddies at the local pub he can tell them, "Jeez, you wouldn't believe what you gotta go through to get a shot of Demerol over there!" So, anyway, by the time I finished with his second soapy 3-H enema (and I made sure they were the epitome of the 3-H enema) he came walking out of the bathroom and said, "I don't need any shot, I feel fine now." Ten minutes later he was walking out the door a happy camper!
Like I said, you just never know! But on a closing note I have to say, it is one of my better stories that I like to tell.
