Betty's Husband---Forgot an IMPORTANT detail

Hi,
I have been informed that I forgot the most important detail of all.  There was indeed a turkey sandwich for lunch.  She laughed out loud and thought of all of you.  What is it with turkey sandwiches?  Do they have special enzymes in them that restore normal heart rhythms?

Hahahahaha!!  We're not exactly sure why the turkey sandwich seems to be the standard fare for all ablation patients!  One of our members (RNRita) mentioned that her hospital usually has them on hand....

I know when I was in the hospital, dinner had already come around, so one of the wonderful nurses reached in the floor frig and whoala....a turkey sandwich!!

Thanks for the updates Mark!!

The turkey sandwich is the be-all, end-all of the hospital refrigerator....along with pudding, skim milk, Italian ice (which I helped myself to every night), and jello.  Turkey has many mysterious healing powers, never gets caught in your throat while you try to eat lying down after a cath, and they keep turkeys in the basement, so it is cheap.....okay, well that is all a lie but they are always on hand.

LOL!!!!

Italian ice sounds wonderful!!!

I was amazed that when I was on the telemetry floor, I could not get decaf tea...cracked me up!  One of the nurses reached into her private stash and gave me a decaf tea bag....  : )
