Had to share this.

I decided that I had some good material to work with and needed to post a blog again.
One of the greatest parts of my job other then caring for the elderly is hearing what they have to say. This week was no exception. I hope you laugh as much as I did.

Today I was helping a resident who usually sleeps all the time and seldom talks much.She is very,very hard of hearing so when she does decide to talk it is usually very loud. One of my coworkers and I were washing her up today and as we were washing her mid section she loudly said to me,"you're getting pretty fresh,I am going to tell your wife.' Before this she saw me wiping sweat from my brow and she asked..'do you drink beer?" "They say drinking beer makes you sweat"
Later she was asking for the helicopter because she needed to go to Sunday School and her husband was not picking her up yet.He has been gone for years so I would guess a helicopter would not have been the answer.

Overhearing a phone call that went like this..(only hearing what was said by the resident), I would love to go to Sioux City with you tomorrow but I have a problem with urination.You see, I feel I have to go about every 30-45 minutes but then when I try nothing comes out.So I am afraid that would be to long a ride in the car.(around 1 hour). He is going the man promised to stop on the way.
Yes this is why I love my job.
Ohh yeah one more.
A gal I was working with asked the man we were helping what her name was, he answered Michelle.Ding ding correct answer.So I asked him what my name was,he answered Dawn.I said Dawn is a woman's name do I look like a women.He answered sometimes.After picking up my coworker off the floor from laughing so hard,I just said my name is Brian , and left the room.Do you think it was my man boobs??
Hope your work is as fun as mine can be.
