Had a student come in complaining of a stomachache. Stated he had raviolis for breakfast
but also said he felt hungry. No fever. Did the usual "have you gone to the bathroom?; been passing gas?" schpil....Ended up giving him a snack and he didn't like how it tasted (apparently raviolis were filet mignon
) so he opted to go back to class with some peppermints, a drink of water, and instructions to try to make it to lunch in the next 30 minutes. All of this was charted.
What wasn't charted???
His return visit almost 2 hours later.....he comes bopping into my office with a big grin on his face "Nurse Keeper!!! When I got to math class I farted sooooooo big!! And guess what?! My stomach felt better afterwards! WHO KNEW?!?!" I just laughed and laughed!!! I should have added that in as a reassessment I suppose
but it definitely tickled me!!
Sidenote: beaver nuggets are addicting!! But definitely shouldn't be eaten in large quantities!!
