I love the elderly

I love the elderly

last little gem from my stay in the hospital..when moved to a new ward i was intrigued to note the very elderly lady across from always demanded a sandwich with every meal..i asked the nurse in charge of our ward why the sandwich was so important to the old sweety.she smiled and said watch what she does with it.sure enuff ater the meal had been cleared the old dear brought out the sandwich opened it up and placed her tablets in sideit. then happily muched away until it was finished.

i asked the nurse why she did this and was informed she wastold to take them with food....... i kid you not... petal
