Birdland, Shepla and all,
Humor is a great healer...... 3 funny experiences of mine in last month of my PC journey
When I was rolled down to surgery they took my vitals and the anesthesiologist said wow your blood pressure is only 111 over 72, pulse 45 aren't you scared..... I said NO why... "should I be?". There was laughter and then dead silence. Then I woke up in recovery.
My 70 year old sister (14 yrs. my senior) came from Ga. to care for me so my wife and daughter could work when I came home from hospital, when we called our mother (91 yrs old) that lives with her in Ga. (my brother in law was mother-in-law sitting) that I was ok and home she said oh that's great...... but you aren't bringing him here are you...... you know cancer is contagious and I don't want to catch it.
There is no such thing as modesty with PC. When the female nurse removed my cathreter I was scared to death, really wanted it out, and "male excitement" and modesty were the last 2 things on my mind trust me.
Well maybe it was funnier to me.
