Laughter Shared

“Doc, after surgery will I be able to play the piano?”

I smiled, having fallen for that joke  often as a young surgeon. 

Older now, I answer “How good are you at it now?  You should be just as good.”

We both laugh.

Cute... my favorite was my 72 year old 4'8" patient asking (after a carpal tunnel release) if she will be able to play basketball. Same thing: "How's your game now?" It's great to laugh with your patients. :)

That is funny, Ramona! I think I read that joke once but had forgotten - made your post a little confusing, at first.

Too funny...I can still fall for that one, before the morning coffee! LOL Thanks for a nice post, Ramona!
