Don't Curse the Nurse!

Sharing support with stories & humor

Again

on March 5, 2015

Fun things to say to people that squint and point to the Cardiac monitor you’re wearing:

1. They’re on sale at Macys – had to have one.

2. If you cut the wrong wire, I implode.

3. I can’t hide it anymore, I am battery powered.

4. It’s my #@!* meter. Every step I take toward you – the alarm gets louder.

5. It’s a fad. I’ll grow out of it in forty-eight hours.

And if you don’t find any humor in the experience, just glare at the curious. They usually walk away.

  2. What’s a Cardiac minitor? I mean I have an idea but not completely sure. Why would you wear one?

      Oh, it’s kind of like having a continuous EKG for 2 days. Those little sticky things on your chest, a small box with five wires coming out of it. At the end of each wire is a snap that connects to the sticky pad on your chest. I was happy to get it off my chest today, ha. I have an irritable heart aka abnormal rhythm. If your arteries look good on exam, but your wave patterns are off, one is bestowed upon you.

    If you make them laugh, they may come back for more!

    I watch too much television… now I’m thinking of a scene from The Flash, where two characters use a contraption mounted on their chest to combine into one nuclear-powered person.
