Musings of a Dinosaur

A Family Doctor in solo private practice; I may be going the way of the dinosaur, but I'm not dead yet.

Really Bad Pun Alert

Place: Nursing home hospice unit

Scenario: Elderly patient has just expired half an hour after her family's arrival at 2:00 am

Nurse: Are you ok?

Patient's daughter: (dabbing at eyes with tissue) Yes. I'm just so grateful we could be here to say our final goodbyes in time. Thank you for calling us. One thing puzzles me, though. How did you know just when to call? That she was about to die?

Nurse: (smiling modestly) We could tell from the cat scan.

Oh, dear! That is funny.

Did you write this, yourself? If so, congrats.

Your blog comes in on little cat feet...

Maybe the patient died of some sort of purrforation?

Hm, sounds similar to the Lab test. ;)
