I think it is amusing how medical professionals have to talk to all adults as if they are six years old and it is their first day of "big school."
Don't get me wrong, Shannon's nurse was very nice, it's just that a few of the things that she said to him made me laugh
To me the funniest things were what she said when she handed him his gown and this pair of slipper socks.
For the gown she said, "Now put this gown on OPEN IN THE BACK." (Do you think she thought Shannon would be confused which side of his body they would be doing the
After making sure he was completely clear on all of the gown instructions, she handed him the slipper socks and said, "Now put these socks on and make sure the rubber grips are ON THE BOTTOM." (I realize that someone, somewhere, sometime ago must have done this sock procedure the wrong way, but it is still funny to me. Shannon is forty-two, not four.)
Another "funny" thing to me that was in all the bathrooms and in Shannon's hospital room was this sign.
Every time I saw one of these signs, it made me feel like I was six years old again.....It is sad to think that we live in the greatest country in the world, yet most Americans apparently still don't know to wash their hands after using the bathroom without being reminded.
They did not ask my opinion, but I think it would be more effective if they used a sign that was a little more threatening.....This sign (in the above picture) looks like something that you would hang in a baby's room; it does not look like it would grab the attention of the thousands of non-hand washing Americans out there.
I think something like this sign would be more effective.
I'm just saying is all.
Once they took Shannon back to do the
I haven't bought a Diet Coke from a machine in a while. I was shocked when I realized that one dollar was not even enough money to purchase one Diet Coke any more. So, I had to search through my wallet to find a quarter. As I went to put my dollar and quarter into the machine, I saw something new (to me anyway)......
I could not believe that Coke machines now accept credit cards. As I was taking this picture a man walked up and looked at me and said, "Well, I've never seen a person take a picture of a Coke machine before.".......Like I said earlier, I don't get out much.
Shannon's results all came back great! No problems. Thank You, God!
I'm not positive, but I don't think he was in the mood for picture taking.
After leaving the hospital, we went straight to Chick-fil-a to get some lunch. He was starving! (He told me about fifteen times that he had not eaten anything for fifty-one hours.....in case you were wondering.)
When we got home, Shannon stumbled upon a new little lizard friend.
Apparently this little lizard was camera shy, because he hid in this hole after Shannon took the first picture of him.
Hopefully, this new little lizard friend of Shannon's will not end up in my bathroom toilet (shudder).
Just another exciting day in Crazyville.
