Don't Mess With Old Ladies!!

 A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"  The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear.  What's the name an room number of the patient?"
The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, Helen, Room 302." The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."
After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Helen is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back normal and Physician has sche4duled her to be discharged tomorrow."
The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news!!" The operator replied, "you're more than welcome! Is Helen your daughter?"  The grandmother said ... "No, I'm Helen in Room 302!! No one tells me shit!"

Forgive me for not visiting/commenting on your blogs until later, was is the emergency room until 1 AM and will return to the hospital briefly again today. I'm okay, just unexpected problem!! More later.

Very funny. I'm going to remember her trick the next time I'm in the hospital and no one will give me answers!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
