Good for a laugh

So in one of my deliveries from last night, the patient was a little (OK, a lot) out of control. A screamer with a potty mouth and pleasant personality to boot.

So she's pushing...and screaming...and screaming...and screaming.

Last night was the tour for the expectant mothers. They walked through during all of this. Evidently all of their eyes bulged out in fear.

The unit clerk told them : Don't worry. It's usually not like this.

I doubled over laughing when I heard that.

Any of them go running to Planned Parenthood?

I always think of the Bill Cosby routine: "This is the part of the delivery where she grabs her husband's lower lip, pulls it up over the top of his head, and yells "MORPHINE!!!"

PP closed down in town about 2 years ago. My clinic IS the functional PP clinic.

And she wasn't even MY patient - she sees the guy I cross-cover for! He was thrilled to sign her over. grumble...
