Today in work a patient about to go to sleep for major surgery said I can't believe how calm I am. We given him 4mg of midazolam, I was surprised he was still able to talk! 😂 I said to him that might be the drugs! He replied I like to think it's the people I have praying for me. Nay it's the drugs mate, unless you'd like to see them try to pray you through your surgery 😝

My Southern Baptist sister had breast cancer about 30 years ago; it came back four years ago and metastasized in her bones. However, she is in remission and her cancer markers have been normal for at least three years. When she has a check-up, she posts the results on Facebook, her friends write, "Thank the Lord!" There will be about five or six such comments and then, Gwen posts: "Thank medical science!" No one ever agrees with me.

Faith healers don't work in hospitals for the same reason psychics don't win the lottery.

Had a stent implanted in my leg a couple of weeks ago. Woke up during the procedure and asked, "So, how's it going?"
Also woke up during another surgery, several years ago, and asked the same thing.
I seem to be resistant to both anesthesia and prayer.

I even have customers who think their cars would 'fix themselves' if only they could have a more positive attitude (I think really they think I should have a more positive attitude). Maybe I'll lock all my tools away and just lay on hands next time... For me, as a mechanic, it's a joke but for medical people it's a real insult in my opinion.

I expect we can see a faith healing and prayer department at the local hospital very soon, at least it will thin the herd of idiots.

@AmelieMatisse Easy fix, just leave a collection box at the front door and people can pay according to the value of service they felt they received.

@AmelieMatisse Somehow I doubt that the Faith Healers would want to have to put their 'divine healing powers' to the test on real trauma patients. Laying on hands isn't going to have much effect on a guy with a sucking chest wound.

@AmelieMatisse The patient would probably have a better chance of living if the faith healers didn't have the poor bastard upside down by the ankles trying to shake the last dime out his pockets before he died. smile009.gif

I like the 'before' drugs but the pain relief afterwards makes me feel sick as a dog; not complaining though - heaps better than being dead smile001.gif smile001.gif !!!

Should have told him his need for surgery was a result of praying too late!

New surgery procedure: don't give them any general anesthesia, just explain Jeebus won't let them feel any pain and he loves you. smile001.gif

I recently told a preacher friend that people trust in doctors and hope in God. Thank you for your service to mankind!

Funny. I don't even believe in spirits. Or any kind of mysticism. You seem interesting. And atractive. But Arizona is a long way from Oregon.Let me know if you own a private jet. Seriously though, long-distance relationships don"t work. But, pleased to make your aquaintence.

Yeah, that "this will just relax you" drug will put me out. I tell them if they want me to move anywhere they better wait to give me drugs.

With all those advancements they're making in the lucrative field of Technical Theocracy, who needs medicine? Did you tell him Yuri Geller would be the attending physician?

That's funny.

We ran a patient the other night that was obviously drug seeking. Told us they were allergic to everything but that one that starts with a D...

The conversation went something like this. Mind you, this was while the patient was texting on their cell phone.

"I have 11/10 abdominal pain. I'm allergic to everything but that one...what is it... starts with a D..."

"Dilaudid?" (Hydromorphone for those that don't commonly use brand names)

"That's it! That's the only thing I can take."

"That's nice. I'm not giving you that."

I'm a medic on an ambulance. I don't break out heavy duty narcotics like that for abdominal pain. If I can see bone, you're actively having a heart attack that I can see on my monitor, or you're burned--you bet. I'll load you up. But for "abdominal pain?" Nope. You're getting saline and a ride to the hospital.

Hello Josephine. Sorry I didn't use your name. I figured you already knew it. But seriously, I like your photo for some reason I can't name. I mean, obviously you are cute. And anyway, a beautiful face is reducible to a series of mathematical equations.

First, i sincerely hope you didn't say that to the patient, @Josephine.

Every person needs something different, especially in moments of crisis.

So in my opinion, no one has the right to say they're wrong if they're receiving comfort from a belief system to which we don't prescribe?

No one has that right. smile003.gif
