Apparently with Alzheimer's, some men get a little....ahhhh...hmmm..frisky. So, would you be taking their vitals and happen to lean over them you need to protect your boobies.....and never never bend over. I was thankfully warned and was able to move quickly, and I nicely held his hand while listening to his heart and lungs. He got some attention with some hand holding and my cleavage went unfondled.

My other patient has this seriously low blood pressure and pulse and he slept through me taking his vitals. I tried to wake him with a nice quite, "Mr. so and so", he didn't arouse so in a loud voice I yelled, "MR SO AND SO" he startled awake and asked me what was going on. I said, "oh nothing, I just wanted to make sure you were okay, you kinda scared me with your low BP" Thank goodness he laughed.

Today I got to observe in the O.R. I got to see some brain surgery...how cool is that!

Cool, hmmmmmm, maybe not exactly the word I would have chosen. Congrats on your great whoo hoo test score and congrats for at least passing the one you "bombed". Keep up the great work and keep your cleavage safe!

Some of my funniest stories come from when I was a tech in the cardiology/neurology dept of our hospital. ALL the old men, even the ones that were restrained, somehow managed to get their hands on "themselves" wink, wink and attempt to take care of business. Most of them couldn't even tell you their names but they sure remembered how to do that. I was very young at the time and completely horrified the first time, now I am old and nothing phases me--lol.
