The "U" in Jesus.
Post 585 ~ ~ ~Saturday, 21st March, 2009.
Hello my friends ~~ I don't expect this post to be wonderful as I have had quite a few extra aches and pains showing up since the accident on Tuesday on top of the existing problems I had. I am on three new medications, so hope they do wonders and get back to where I was about a month ago. I hope you are all doing well and do not have my list
Probably you don't complain as much as I do. Sorry, just say it's therapy for me.
I had a surprise on Wednesday, a lady came to the door and asked if I remembered her.
I sort of knew the face, and it turned out to be a lady who stood behind my chair at the
crash scene. I must have been trembling because she had a hand on each shoulder, so i
hadn't seen much of her face. Every now and then she'd say "Are you still OK?"
So I thanked her and we had a lovely chat for a while.
Then on Thursday, a real surprise, Kerry came to see if I was OK. We were both so relieved
that we were both all right, we hugged and cried together. Enough of that now.
My elder son, John spent half the day with me today, just doing a few little jobs and just
talking and looking at some of the photos from his recent trip to Tasmania. (Tassie) It cheered me up to have some company.
Tonight I have a poem called "The "U" in Jesus. Author Unknown.
Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.
And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.
You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born: that's why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died,
It even takes U to spell crUcified.
Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in his plan?
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.
When JesUs left earth at His Upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He jUst had to mention.
Go into the world and tell them it's trUe,
That I love them all - Just like I love U.
Thank you Barbara for that one. Hope all is well with you.
Thank you so much Linda for the next few funnies called "Tales of the N.H.S."
No 1. A man rushes into the A&E dept, and yells...."My wife is going to have her baby in the taxi." I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the taxi, lifted the lady's dress and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly, after protests from the lady, I noticed there were several taxis - - - and I was in the wrong one. ~~ Dr. McDonald, Glasgow.
No. 2 At the beginning of my shift, I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female's chest wall. "Big breaths..." I instructed.
"Yes, they used to be, ".....replied the patient. ~~ Dr. Barnes, Bath.
No. 3 One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband
had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than five minutes later, I heard her on her mobile phone reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a massive
internal fart. ~~ Dr. Steinberg - London
No.4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment, he told me that he was having
trouble with one of his medications. "Which one..?" I asked.
The GTN patch; the nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I'm running out of places to put it."
I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see, . . . Yes the man had over fifty patches on his body. Now the instructions include removal of old patch before applying a new one. ~ ~ Dr, St.Clair - - Nofolk General.
No. 5 While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked, "How long have you been bedridden?"
After a look of complete confusion she answered, "Why, not for about 20 years - when
my husband was still alive." ~ ~ Dr. Swanson -Kent.
No. 6 I was performing rounds at the hospital this morning and while checking up on a
man, I asked..."So, how was your breakfast this morning?" "It's very good except for the
Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste"...Bob replied
I then asked to see the jelly and Bob produced a foil packet labelled KY Jelly.
~~ Dr, Brandon -- Bristol.
No. 7. A nurse was on duty in the A&E when a young woman with purple hair styled
in a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos and wearing strange clothing,
entered , , , , It wa quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she
was scheduled for an immediate operation....
When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above there was a tattoo that read.."Keep off the grass."
Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's
dressing which read - - - "Sorry,..had to mow the lawn."
Last one from my good friend Robyn - Thank you Robyn. With apologies to
The 23rd Psalm.
"Caffeine is my shephard, I shall not doze It maketh me to wake in green pastures.
It leadth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz.
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk in the valley of the shadow of addiction.
I will fear no 'Equal'
for thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a caraffe before me in the presence of the Starbucks.
Thou anointest my day with pep, my mug runneth over
(when I heat it too long in the microwave.)
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I will live in the House of Mochas forever. Author Unknown.
I will say Goodnight for now and get me to bed. Take care of yourselves and each
other. My love and best wishes to you all. Thanks so much for your kind comments
which I hope to reply to tomorrow. Cheers, Merle.
