Sometimes in life, things go wrong and you find yourself needed to rush to a hospital. One woman had a bad experience after eating a delicious meal that landed her in the emergency room.


Health professionals always try to do their best, but sometimes everyone has to make it up as they go

A woman was having a meal alone which included some fish that she was enjoying with some vegetables. Next thing, a fishbone got lodged in her throat and try as she might she just couldn’t pry it out.

Afraid that the bone could get lodged down further in her throat and struggling to breathe properly she deiced to drive herself to a hospital. The women ended up walking into an emergency room with the fishbone still firmly caught in her throat.

She explained her situation as best as she could at the front desk. A nurse acted quickly and sat her down in a wheelchair before wheeling her off to an examination room.

The pair reached the top of a ramp in no time but the nurse stumbled and accidentally let go of the wheelchair with the woman still in it. The poor patient flew down the ramp with the wheelchair.

She hit the rail at the bottom painfully with a great thud! The impact of the fall caused her to cough up the fishbone that had been lodged in her throat.

Panicking and nervously sweating from the top of the ramp, the nurse realized she could get in trouble for the mishap. So thinking quickly she yelled down, “You’re really lucky lady, usually we have to do that two or three times!”

In another medical incident, a man had gone to see his doctor for his annual examination. The doctor asked him to describe his daily activities.

The man said

“Well. Yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, drank eight beers, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush, jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake, marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand and took four leaks behind big trees.”

The doctor was quite impressed with the patient and smiled telling him: “Most men your age don’t do half of that activity! You must be a real outdoor-kind of man.”

The man responded sadly: “Not really. I’m just a really bad golfer.”
