One night while making rounds with the E.R. physician, a Male patient came in about 4:am c/o bilateral leg cramps, he proceeded to tell us that his mother had recently passed, and, cramps in her legs were one of her first symptoms. The Physician stated “Oh I am sorry, what kind of Cancer did she have?” The patient then very seriously stated “TERMINAL” Well, I almost peed on myself, and the Doctor never cracked a smile……..until we left the room, and then he fell against the wall, laughing so hard! That made our night! Although it was something the patient thought was a dire Emergency, we often heard stories like this on a regular basis!
