    Typical Marine shoot at them no problem, cut them with a knife no problem, pull out a needle and they get weak in the knees. ;)

    All seriousness aside it looks like a really good book, thanks for posting it.

    you ain't kidding there buddy...
    whenever they have to take blood I turn my head and look away...

    in fact when I had my gallbladder out last March... if someone told me they would put a catheter in my you know what... I( would have run right out of that hospital :D

    Ah urethral catheters.....

    My least favourite memories of hospitalisation....It gave me some appreciation for what it might have been like to have been ministered by the likes of Vlad the Impaler!

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    Have some pity on the poor medtech that emplaced the damn thing - placing a foley catheter. is tricky to do correctly.

    Glad to hear to got out in one piece, so as to speak.
