Overheard on the Cath Lab Table

Patients say some crazy stuff sometimes.

This guy is in the midst of a heart attack. We're in the process of opening his clogged artery. He asks us, "What time is it? The Red Sox are on at 12:45."

Ummm.... I think his priorities are a bit mixed up.

I'm going to Mom's later, I'll send you her Baked Beans recipe today. Just ignore the part about the pork fat...

maybe it was his way of dealing with the incredible stress of the moment? hopefully, the gravity of it will eventually sink in.

Obviously. He couldn't wait until AFTER the game to have his heart attack?

Sheesh.

Welcome to Boston. ;-)

Ha! That's probably a good sign--he was clearheaded enough to remember the game.
