HOW IS NORMA?

HOW IS NORMA?


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 and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother
 in her weak, tremulous voice said, 
"Norma Findlay, 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 Norma is doing well. Her  blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal, and her  physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled 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 Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother
 said,"No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room  302.  No one tells me shit."
Bah Dum Chh!

Hilarious Roger and who can't relate. I hate it when you get blood work or an MRI and no one will tell you anything! Maybe I'll try this method next time.

Old joke, but still a good one. I bet there have been a lot of people in hospitals that have considered doing this but decided against it. Thanks for the lift on a stressful day.

Mr. Shaken,  That' classic.  It's also very true.  My mother gets mad as heck when no one tells her what's going on.  Part of it is that she can't hear ... but that's another story.

Actually, I told Mickey this joke last night and she loved it.  I'm glad I could make you smile and you appreciated the joke.

Still waiting for the fat lady to sing!

Poor Norma, but I'm sure many patients feel that way, unfortunately.  Thanks for the chuckle, Roger.

Roger:  I have read this in the past but it is worthy of a second read.   So cute and now that I volunteer at the Heart Institute so close to home.  LOL
