4 am cant sleep so,,,,,,,a steroid joke :) ?

One day Mr Tipton rushed his pregnant wife over to the hospital.

As the doctors were prepping his wife, Mrs Tipton's brother in law, Wayne, arrived to be there to congratulate his sister. The birth went ahead fine with Mrs Tipton giving birth to two healthy twins. However when Mr Tipton saw the afterbirth, he fainted and cracked open his his head.

Later Mr Tipton woke up in bed with the doctor standing above him .

Mr Tipton the doctor said, "we've performed surgery and you are going to be fine".

"But what about my wife--and the babies " he said, suddenly remembering.

"Don't worry, your wife is fine and so are the twins" . replied the surgeon "you have a handsome boy and a beautiful baby girl. and their already named because when you were unconscious, and your wife was still under the anesthesia, she requested that her brother Wayne name the kids".

"NO!",, NOT her brother! , Hes a complete idiot? I cant believe she let him!," Oh my god what did he name them?"

"He named your daughter Denise," relayed the surgeon.

"Hey, not bad!, perhaps i underestimated my brother in law. What did he name my son.?"

The surgeon said,,,"He named your son Denephew," :D

lots of love jimmy xxx :D :D

  • Many Thanks,Sonia,

    You seem bit like myself Sonia, yes, the cold as well :) yuk, it most certainly doesn't help the breathing !

    Its such a shame about your cats, lets hope your dog is ok, That's the worst of pets, we grow to love them, then it hurts to part with them.

    i can only say i'm" slightly" better, still up with breathing and pain,,, but not as bad as it was , but very aggravating never mind we just need to make the best of each day, [as possible,,,, ouch my back :D ]

    exactly what ill do later Sonia, try catch 40 winks later,, meanwhile need to catch up on things, its a "yukky" day here in scotland. take care Sonia.

  • Thanks Jimmy, I too am taking steroids and antibiotics. Making tea at 4 .00 am. The steroids certainly keep you awake. Very tired though but wheeze not so bad so they do work

  • yes M6, i've been on and off them for years, you'd think i would get used to them, but no, same as you tea at 4am :D They do help, the breathing though, hate them, yet dread coming off them,, oh well you just cant win at times :)

    many thanks, hope your breathing continues to improve,

    best regards jimmy :)

  • Hello Jimmy.

    You had me giggling away - not til 7.15 this evening I'm afraid.

    Love reading your posts.

    Aren't we weird folks. I've been on steroids daily for three years.

    I can guarantee I will wake up at 2.30 then 4 ish every night!!

    Fortunately I sleep well if the old Osteoporosis behaves!

    Hoping you sleep better tonight!

    That goes for everyone else too.

    πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘



  • Hi Anne , Many thanks,,, Glad you had a giggle :D Your much the same as myself, Could almost set the alarm to the times :)

    Ive the same bone problem myself ,, that's me up again now,,, the 2am shift :D

    lots of love jimmy xxx :)

  • Oh dear another poor sleeper! Daytime naps don't compensate for lying awake in the small hours, imagining everyone else doing their log impressions. Maybe we should start a Wide Awake Club? Love the joke :D

  • Hi Fairlass,

    Its hard to get back on to a proper sleep pattern, its not just the steroids, its pain and breathing, Then shattered during the day, impossible not to nap, Even fighting against it,,, yes def,, we need to start a "wide awake" club :D

    Many thanks,

    lots of love jimmy xxx :)

  • I'd join you at the Club right now Jimmy but am about to try for sleep! Just catch some whenever you can. I'm christening you Jimmy Mack after the Martha Reeves song which I like. Spose it should be Jimmy Mac though x

  • :D that's me off now too fairlass,i,ll have another bash :)

    love jimmy mac :D xxx :)

  • I managed about two hrs how did you do Jimmy?

  • i manged the same,woke up for carer, then managed another 1 hour light doze

    I seem to be sleeping in episodes :D - good for the dreams,[if their good ones ] ,,but bad for the sleep :)

    But i've had enough!!! im now putting my foot down with a firm hand ? :D No dozing today, bed 10 or 11 pm,, must get in some sort of routine,,,,

    jimmy :)

  • Yes routine is so important. If I don't sleep at night I get up late. It's a bad habit. Let's try and be firm with ourselves, then we can form the Fast Asleep Club :D

  • the problem with me is a night catheter bag lying outside one side of the bed, the oxygen tubing on the other, plus having to sleep in the sitting up position, i feel more like an egyptian mummy, cant move,, but been in pain of late too, ,, but def. no naps today, early night , steroids not helping sleep, but spoonful of oramorph, ,tonight , i,ll beat it yet !!

    jimmy :)

  • Bless you Jimmy, you certainly don't have an easy time of it. Just hope things can get a little easier for you and it always helps if you can get done sorry of sleep. Like you I have to be in the upright position (pardon the pun) to go to sleep. It drives me mad. Take care.

  • Jimmy so sorry for spelling errors. I meant to say it always helps to get some sort of sleep ! Apologies.

  • no need to apologise,sq,holt. i do that often, i knew what you meant though, yes it is awkward at times especially when in pain, so i just get up.

    squirrel, see under the orange reply button, there a small v shaped arrow thingy :) if you press that, itll come up with delete or edit, if you press the edit, you get your post back to alter if need be,, hope that helps, but most certainly no harm done ,

    p.s i've just edited this :) jimmy :)

  • A ha ! Yes, fantastic. Cheers.

  • see :D nearly as brainy as me now ha ha [NOT :D ] but glad you at least seen it, best regards jimmy :)

  • hahahaha hat was a good one!

  • :D thanks punky, a wee laugh eeps us going at times :D

    best regards jimmy.
