    This is not a funny story I am sharing, but this strip reminds me of the dedication of medical professionals who saved my friend’s life. She is like a second mom to us. She had a surgery and the stitches were still fresh. Then she began having extreme heart problems and coded three times. She was transported from one hospital to another. One nurse held her stitches together by hand because of the toll all of this was taking on her body. She held them together for hours in one hospital, on the ambulance ride, and in the next hospital. Glad to say my second mom is still with us today.

    He’s lucky that surgeon didn’t perform a hemorrhoidectomy. Unless he can go 5 or 6 days without emptying his bowels.

    I never had glue that actually held the wounds closed, last time they charged me over $2,000 for it!

    “You know Doc, I think you wanna be here! Otherwise you’d just take that glove off and let me go home… ALONE!”

    GREEN PLAID ALERT! Everybody do a shot!

    Hi, Bleeb. Not much of a view from up there, but at least you shook Dalcon off. Better luck next week.

    The lady in the red shirt should get the doctor’s attention, her left foot just broke in half.

    In case you get over glued with super glue nail polish remover or acetone will dissolve it.

    I am starting to remember, back in the day the “sick” jokes, reading your comics lately, such as:

    Mommy Mommy, can I have a cookie? Yes of course help yourself….you know the can is placed topshelf! But Mommy please, I can’t reach topshelf, you know I don’t have any arms!? Sorry son, no arms… cookies!


    Mommy mommy, why is daddy lying in the middle of the road?Shut up, I’m shifting gears!

    Don’t EVEN get me started on the dead baby jokes…

    OK just one:

    How do you make a dead baby float?

    Start with root beer…

    I got another one, now that you got me started:

    Mommy, Mommy, can we have Aunt Ethel for dinner?No, we still have half of your grandmother in the freezer.

    This one got me laughing…

    Totally unrelated, when Mom got cataracts done in 1980s they used stitches that had to be removed a week or so later. When I got them done a couple years ago, no stitches, no glue, just let it seal itself up.
