 This large framed print proudly hangs in the office of my
 wife's obstetrician.  He's the man who brought both of our
 children in to the world so we thought a baby-themed cartoon
 would make a nice gift.  It hardly compares to the 'gifts'
 he has given us, but he still seemed to appreciate the thought.

Subj:     Organ Donor Fired (S275c, DU)
          From: jerry on 11/26/2001

 Nancy Bevilacqua of Seattle, Washington was fired last
 month by Christopher And Banks, the 352-store clothing store
 chain, because she donated a kidney to her dying mother in
 an emergency procedure, and did so just before the start
 of the holiday gift-buying season.  The company felt that
 allowing her to take leave under these circumstances would
 establish a bad precedent.

 And what says Bavilacqua when she was told, six days before
 the surgery, that she was fired?  "I was aghast and shaken
 up," she said. "To go from one extreme to another."

 And what says John Prange, vice president of human resources
 for Christopher And Banks?  "Allowing the leave could have
 created a precedent whereby other leaves not covered by the
 Family and Medical Leave Act, which were denied, could have
 resulted in a perception of discrimination."

 And what says the doctor, Dr. William Marks?  "All of us
 were just shocked when we realized the implications.  This
 sends an unbelievably negative message.  Giving a kidney
 is a tremendous gift to society as well as a gift to the

Subj:     Rare Blood Type (S1032)
          From tll3757

 An Arab Sheik was admitted to Hospital for heart surgery,
 but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to have
 some of his blood type stored in case the need arose.

 As the gentleman had an extremely rare type of blood
 that couldn't be found locally, the call went out around
 the world.

 Finally a Scotsman was located who had the same rare 
 blood type. After some coaxing, the Scot donated his
 blood for the Arab.

 After the surgery the Arab sent the Scotsman a new BMW,
 a diamond necklace for his wife, and $100,000 US dollars
 in appreciation for the blood donation.

 A few months later,the Arab had to undergo
 a corrective  surgery procedure.

 Once again, his doctor telephoned the Scotsman who this
 time was more than happy to donate his blood.

 After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a
 thank-you card and a box of Quality Street chocolates.
 The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not
 reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated.

 He then phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you
 would be more generous than that - last time you sent
 me a BMW, diamonds and money, but this time you only
 sent me a lousy thank-you card and a crappy box of

 To this the Arab replied: "Aye laddie, but I now have
 Scottish blood in me veins".

 A sci-fi-like skin gun sprays stem cells onto burned skin
 is the latest treatment in helping burn victims.  Dr. Jorg
 Gerlach of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine
 at the University of Pittsburgh developed the gun, which
 sprays a solution of cells and water onto the damaged skin.

 For Matthew Uram, a Pennsylvania state police officer, the
 skin gun was life-changing.  The 44-year-old was one of the
 first U.S. patients to be treated by the procedure after
 sustaining first- and second-degree burns to the right side
 of his face and body after someone poured gasoline onto a
 bonfire in July 2009 while Uram was standing nearby.

 When Uram went for treatment at UPMC Mercy Hospital's burn
 centre, doctors directed him to Gerlach.  Less than a week
 after the accident, Uram was treated with the gun.

 The gun sprays stem cells that have been collected from a
 small, thin layer of skin that has been grafted from
 patient's own healthy skin, Gerlach explained.

 The process takes about 90 minutes.  Among the handful of
 patients tested, the initial healing of the wound occurred
 within two weeks compared to traditional treatments, which
 take months and pose a risk for patients dying of infection.

          From: brucejohnsonbaugh and AFine963 on 1/5/2017
 Source: http://www.texasbbqforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=27141

 Doug is in the hospital and knows the end is near.  His
 nurse, wife, daughter and two sons are with him -  hanging
 on his every word. He asks for two witnesses and a
 camcorder in place to record his last wishes.

 And when all is ready he begins to speak:
 "My son, Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
 "My daughter, Sybil, gets the apartments over in the east end."
 "My son, Jamie, will take the offices over in the City Centre."
 "To Sarah, my dear wife, go all the residential
  buildings on the banks of the river."

 The nurse and witnesses are blown away - having no idea
 of his extensive holdings. So as Doug slips away, the
 nurse says to his wife: "It's wonderful that your husband,
 who from all appearances had very little in the way of
 material possessions, accumulated all this property".

 "Property!," the wife scoffs. "The schmuck had a paper route!"

Subj:     Nurses Aren't Supposed To Laugh (S640b)
          From: allenbergman on 4/18/2009

 'Of course I won't laugh, said the nurse. I'm a professional.
 In over twenty years I've never laughed at a patient.'

 'Okay then,' said Fred, and he proceeded to drop his trousers,
 revealing the tiniest 'man thingy' the nurse had ever seen.
 Length and width, it couldn't have been bigger than the a AAA

 Unable to control herself, the nurse started giggling, then
 fell to the floor laughing.  Ten minutes later she was able
 to struggle to her feet and regain her composure. 'I am so
 sorry,' she said. 'I don't know what came over me.  On my
 honour as a nurse and a lady, I promise it won't happen again.
 Now, tell me, what seems to be the problem?'

 'It's swollen,' Fred replied.  She ran out of the room.

Subj:     Gettin' It Checked - Poem (S596c)
          From: LABLaughsClean on 6/20/2008

 I decided to let the doc check me out,
 'cause I didn't feel really quite right.
 All these aches and pains annoyed me
 Especially when I can't sleep at night.

 He could find nothing out of order,
 But then he sure wouldn't let it rest.
 Said, "You have Medicare ? Blue Cross,
 So I'll just run a 'few' more little tests."

 So, to the hospital I was swiftly sent,
 Though I didn't really feel that bad.
 They tried every way I could be bent
 And did "every" test that could be had.

 I was flouroscoped ? cystoscoped,
 My poor agin' bod's frame displayed.
 Stripped naked, on a cold steel table,
 While every inch internal was xrayed.

 They checked for worms and parasites,
 Even for fungus and some foreign crud.
 And pierced me with big long needles
 While taking whole gallons of my blood.

 Strange people came checking me over,
 They probed, pushed ? poked all around.
 And just to make sure I was really living,
 They completely wired my ass for sound.

 At great expense it was finally concluded
 All the results not even filling one page.
 That what I have may one day kill me;
 Some silly damn thing called OLD AGE!
