I was reminded of this by this comedian who was treated at Dana Farber and then had a special show for his caregivers at the hospital.
I constantly crack jokes with the medical personnel I deal with. I have to. Otherwise, it would be too depressing. If I cannot see the humor in the number of punctures I get from regular blood tests, I might start oozing blood out all the needle holes.
- I need a frequent parker discount at the hospital's parking lot.
- All the johnnies are designed by Dr. Seymour Buttz. (Sound it out and you will get it.)
- Personally I wished they had ramps at hospitals so I could go on wheelchair rides like Curious George did.
Okay, my sense of humor is not fully developed this morning. Its Monday morning. I have chemo brain and fibro fog.
But I hope you get my point. Never lose your sense of humor. Life would be boring with out it. And cancer would suck even more.
