"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same." - Flavia Weedn

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
IF THE WORLD WERE BLIND
If the world was blind,
maybe then we'd see
the true side of beauty,
deep within you and me.
No one could judge us
by our outer looks,
like the fancy covers
on expensive books.
We'd see with our hearts,
and not just our eyes,
and what we discover
might be a surprise.
There would be no need
to try to impress,
with the way we look,
or the way that we dress.
The only thing that would matter
is the way we would feel,
not phony or cheap,
but truthful and real.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
MEDICAL RECORD DICTATION Part 1 of 2 [Dec 8, 17]
Her father died in his 90's of female trouble in the prostate and kidneys.
Both the patient and the nurse herself reported passing flatus.
By the time she was admitted to the hospital, her rapid heart had stopped and she was feeling much better.
The patient was seen in consultation by Dr. Smith who felt he should sit tight on the abdomen and I agreed.
Dr. Smith is watching his prostate.
DISCHARGE STATUS: Alive but without permission.
She was treated with Mycostatin oral suppositories.
Fractured pelvis and right breast came off with traction.
Her children are 12, 10 and 9; husband is approximately the same age.
Basically she is blind and wants something done about her foot.
Rectal examination revealed no masses but did show yellow shoes.
Abdomen is soft, bowel sounds are pleasant.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A preacher phoned the city's newspaper. "Thank you very much," said he, "for the error you made when you announced my sermon topic for last Sunday. The topic I sent you was 'What Jesus Saw in A Publican.' You printed it as 'What Jesus Saw in a Republican' I had the biggest crowd of the year!"

A psychologist once asked a group of college students to jot down the initials of the people they disliked. Some of the students taking the test could think of only one person. Others listed as many as fourteen.
But the interesting fact that came out of the bit of research was this: Those who disliked the largest number of people were themselves the most widely disliked.
