I was working at a large hospital in Sacramento at the time. I worked on a Diabetic/Renal Transplant unit. We did transplants on people from 18 months to however old the physician would accept. One day, we had an eight year old boy in who had previously had a kidney transplant. He was in for some rejection issues and needed some biopsies and other various tests done. At the time, he was assigned to another nurse, but he turned out to be more than she bargained for. You are reading page 2 of We'll Have A Farting Contest If You Let Me Put An IV In You.. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Never mind that this is from 2008... this is not only a great story, it's a reminder that sometimes you just have to think outside the box, remember your dev. psych from time to time and come up with something so creative that just works, leaving everyone else wondering when you're in a pickle, what else will you pull out of your ....?

OK. I can understand burping for half an hour, but how does one produce farts for 30 minutes straight?  🤔

Not as good as the fart story, but when my 11 year old son was undergoing chemotherapy for AML, he kept refusing to do his physical therapy. We finally got him to cooperate by telling him he could wear his voice modifying Darth Vader mask while he did his walking. Picture, if you will, a overly emaciated, very pale, disproportionately large-headed Darth Vader in a too-big hospital gown and yellow socks breathing menacingly down the hall pushing an IV pole.
