Hope everyone has a Great Day : ) I can identify with some of this alphabet. Can you?

My ABC's

A is for Apple, and B is for Boat, That used to be right, But now it won't float!

Age before Beauty is what we once said, But let's be a bit more real instead.

Now A's for arthritis;

B's the bad back,

C is the chest pains, perhaps car-d-iac?

D is for dental decay and decline,

E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!

F is for fissures and fluid retention,

G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.

H is high blood pressure--I'd rather it low;

I for incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,

K is for knees that crack when they bend.

L for libido, what happened to s@x?

M is for memory, I forget what comes next

N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;

O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!

P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!

Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?

R for reflux, one meal turns to two.

S for sleepless nights, counting my fears,

T for tintinitus; there's bells in my ears!

U is for urinary; big troubles with flow;

V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy," you know.

W is for worry, NOW what's going 'round?

X is for X-ray, and what might be found.

Y is another year I'm left here behind,

Z is for zest that I still have-- in my mind.

I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed, and I've kept twenty-six 'doctors' fully employed!!!.

let's see - it's 3:30 am - guess i can punch in under "s" huh? :
we have a male nurse arne - he's funny cuz he's so darn methodial -he'll gather your meds, pull up a chair, look at your face, check your wristband, repeat your name and number aloud, inital every one as he unwraps it & dumps it into the little cup, put the pkgs into the numbered big cup, and turn 10 pills into 10 minutes' work. well i fouund out he even stores the empty pkgs in the prescription closet for a month! arne might be slow but he don't make i pestered him - said i'll bet when it's time to take you own pills, you pull out your wallet to make sure it's still you! what a guy. :)

Maybe he's just being extra cautious, that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'd rather they err on the side of caution when doling out the meds too. You surely wouldn't want them to give you anything that was meant for someone else or possibly something you could be allergic to either : )

The humor is with you DC. Arne sounds like people I've known. They never overlook anything. But, they are always filled with doubts as to whether or not they did this or that. I'm starting to have unsure feelings myself. But, hey! I've I got age to blame,,...oh yeah, it on.

Try to get some sleep now.......gfp
