None of Them's Me!

This photo is of Skip when at the hospital they had gotten him past his crisis ... and just before getting the pacemaker.  I love this photo with my Heart ... it was so good to see Skip looking like this ... it had been months since I'd seen his face look like this.

We didn't know he'd been having episodes with his heart rate beating so low ... then, he had a stroke, complete 3rd degree heart block (electrical activity ... upper chamber of heart not communicating with lower chamber).  January 12, 2016

 Flowers are from Chelsea King ... a dear person to us ... she brought them to hospital ... had Skip laughing. I pure loved it ... everyone needs a special person in their life like Chelsea!


The nurse walked into the room.  She looked at her patient, who happened to be Skip.  He was in a lot of pain.  He'd suffered a stroke, was still experiencing headaches.

Not only that ... a pacemaker had just been implanted in the left side of his chest.  He was in a lot of pain.  The nurse knew that ... she wanted to find out ... so, she held up a pain chart of faces for him to look at.

Mind you, Skip was groggy ... very sick.  He squinted his eyes to look at the faces.  The nurse asked him again, "which one is you?"

Skip was recovering from having pacemaker implanted ... he wasn't himself ... still under the medicines given to him.

Skip looked at them hard ... looked up at the nurse, told her, "None of them's me!"

This is pain chart of faces Skip looked at ... when the nurse told him to tell her which one was him!

The nurse stood still, looked at Skip, burst out laughing.  It was so funny!   Skip wasn't himself at all, ha!

I wanted to share this little story when Skip was hospitalized this month.  He is home recovering from all.  I still think about this ... and begin laughing out loud.  I can still hear Skip's voice saying, "none of them's me!"

Author's Note:

This was so funny, and got away with the nurse!  When she realized what he said ... she laughed a lot.  She loved it ... she hadn't ever had anyone to say that.
