 I have felt humorous lately.  But I have to get this ordeal that my husbands off my chest, I felt helpless. But lots of prayer and persistence and determination, it all worked out. Now I need to get him good and well. If you can not breath, you can not survive. I am dumbfounded, and will continue to be, that so many doctors are turning their back on patients. If you believe doctors are above you, you are sadly mistaken. I worked in the medical field from the medical school to the child development center to the hospital Admissions office, clinics and even an insurance company. I worked for a private practive surgeon. They are people like the rest of us plain and simple. They make mistakes. So do not put your whole life into the hands of people who are imperfect. Like anything else in life, you will be sadly mistaken or disappointed,

Now I love humor. I feel that humor has pulled me through some difficult times, like surgery, childbirth, death of loved ones. Along with my faith I think humor is good medicine. It can lift your spirits. Make you laugh out loud.   Cry happy tears!

When my mom passed away, a large floral spray was laid upon her casket. My sister was sitting next to me and nudged me. I recall the story of my own birth from the words of my sister. She was mads, unhappy I came into her life. So when a neighbor brought our mother a bouquet of flowers from her garden, my sister told me she had snapped the heads off the snapdragons in that bouquet.  We looked at the casket spray and my sis whispered, even in death mom is reminding me of that incident. Whenever I see snapdragons, I smile because of that story.

Having my very first neurosurgery I was scared nearly out of my wits. I was a young bride, recently married, had a young daughter and I was in a life or death situation. The doctor said before my surgery he would like to perform a lumbar puncture. OK so he wanted to stick a giant knitting needle into my spine which could possibly cause me to become paralyzed! He wanted a "rookie" doctor to handle the procedure. I said, send him over to your house and let him practice on your wife first! Needless to say, the doctor did perform that procedure on me himself. 

I love humor and love sharing it. So here are a few more for Aw...Mondays

What do you call the wife of a hippie? Mississippi!

It's hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs, they take everything so literally!

What did the Mayonaise say when the refrigerator door was open?  Close the door, I'm dressing!

Ok they are corny, but at least I bet you S M I L E D a little didn't you?

The year is nearly gone away. November is a bittersweet time for me so you will hear my silly humor more often.

Oh Love are right on!

I do so hope your husband is on the mend! Thanks for the corny jokes - they did make me smile.
How sad this world would be without our being able to see the humor in things, even when we aren't in the best of situations.

"If you believe doctors are above you, you are sadly mistaken." -- I need to have THAT engraved on my heart. Or at least, my brain.
I so enjoyed the story of the headless snapdragons in your mother's casket spray. Humor is so under-rated; truly, the best medicine -- whether it be a broken bone or a broken heart.
