Cheap Scrubs

Posted by on May 24, 2011

I’ve been spending some time this past week getting poked with my nemisis–hypodermic syringes a.k.a.–Needles! I required some blood work, a C-T scan and numbing. I opined to the nurse’s that I have white coat syndrome. In case you’re unaware this is the condition that records your blood pressure higher than it usually is due to the fact that you’re just getting it done. But then I realized, there are no white coats or uniforms in hospitals anymore. Everyone wears scrubs. Blue ones, green ones, but mostly flowered ones. This made me realize how accomodating hospitals can be. Why wouldn’t everyone want their employees to be as comfortable as possible? Some of these ensembles can be quite sartorial. But I got to thinking, why are they called scrubs that can be found here, or cheap scrubs? No one scrubs anything when wearing these. You’re either getting carted on a gurney, stuck with a needle, slid into a large metallic donut, having your temperature taken, or just signing a large degree of documents. But no one scrubs. So the next time I have blood work done I’ll mention to the nurse that I’m having flowered scrub syndrome.

I had to have a couple of needle biopsy’s of the breast but they came out fine. I then haad a growth on my hand that was cancerr so i had that removed on Tuesday and have about 20 stitches. We will be down here till the 18th so I can have the stitches out and jerry gets his teeth. It is real hot, temps in the 90’s everyday, today it hit 97. I can go in the pool just have to keep my hand up so I look like the statue of liberty with opposit hand in the air. Talk to you later. Mayor Jerry and Barb
