MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY… ??????


My friend Jan gave me the following list … sounds about right to me !

ARTERY … the study of painting
BACTERIA … the back door to the cafeteria
BARIUM … what doctors do when patients die
CAT SCAN ….searching for Kitty
CAUTERIZE … made eye contact with her
DILATE … to live long
ENEMA … not a friend
MORBID … a higher offer
OUTPATIENT … a patient who has fainted
PELVIS … second cousin to Elvis
SEIZURE … a Roman Emperor
TERMINAL ILLNESS … getting ill at the airport


And last but not least …

NITRATES … cheaper than day rates

Thank you so very much for cheering me up Ginnie! This Winter is depressing me and the fact that I have had to come into work this morning to do some yearly clinical skills update training.. gah! Mind you I am not really complaining here.. just that I am not used to mornings.. you know I "Don't Do Mornings!!!" lol
