How’s Norma?

A woman telephoned St. Joseph ‘s Hospital. She timidly asked: “Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”

The operator said: ” I’ll be glad to help, dear. What’s the name and room number?”

The woman, with weak tremulous voice said: “Norma Findlay, Room 302.”

The operator replied: “Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse.”

After a few minutes the operator returned to the phone and said: “I have good news. Her nurse told me that Norma is doing very well.. Her blood pressure is fine, her blood work is normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday.”

Happy, the woman said: “Thank you. That’s wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news.”

The operator replied: “You’re more than welcome. Is Norma your mother?”

The answer came quickly: “No, I’m Norma Findlay in 302, but no one tells me s**t.”
