Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

4/4 - Oh so tired...

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

Another late night. Ok, it’s only 10pm, but I’m falling asleep at
the keyboard. The night before your kids’ MRI is not a good night
for sleeping. If you do fall asleep, your spouse will inevitably
wake you up after 30 minutes. If you can’t fall asleep, you’ll
wake your spouse up sometime in the next 30 minutes. So it went
last night. Two parents who couldn’t get any sleep because of
their son’s MRI the next morning.


So, I’m so tired, I’m heading to bed and will tell you all about
it in tomorrow’s issue.

For those of you who get this as email...
Enjoy today’s Jokes!


p.s. Oh, that’s just too cruel isn’t it? Ok, we got there 10
minute early and signed in. After that, two sets of parents and
kids got there. They got to go in first. (figures) When we finally
did go in, we told them that sometimes they had a hard time with
putting in the IV in son #4, and they usually had to call the IV
team. So they didn’t even try to put the IV in with the nurses,
they just called the IV team. (They had some cool light that they
put under his arm so they could see the blood vessels. It still
took them two pokes to get the IV to go in. But, son #4 didn’t cry
at all, he grimaced a little, but no tears or yelling. (As opposed
to the kid in the next room, who cried like nobody’s business.)

Anyway, it took forever. (We were at the hospital for 6 hours
today.) The radiologist finally said that there were 3 bright
spots on his tumor bed, but that they were there last time and he
thought they were just blood vessels or scar tissue. In either
event, he said they were smaller than they were last time and he
was sure they weren’t tumor. So, yes, clean scans again! We can
now rest for another 2 and a half months (then get stressed for 2
weeks) and do the whole routine again.

Reader Comment Section:

You think that the numerology of this is bad:

>On Wednesday of this week, at two minutes and three seconds after
>1AM in the morning, the time and date will be;
>01:02:03 04/05/06.

Try this one:

In June of this year, around 6am, at 6 minutes after, you can even
say 6 minutes and 6 sec. if you want, It will be 6:6:6 6/6/6
I have heard people who will not write out a check for that amount
in the grocery store, or use that check number, or many other
things....so they are going to be paranoid this summer.
