I called my nephew on the phone yesterday, he is a doctor in the UK , I was updating him about my brother's condition. He is a 27 year old handsome young man. I guess he sensed my anxiety even though I tried to speak very normally. This morning when I woke up I read his message which he sent me overnight. He claims the purpose of his message is to to cheer me up. He was on night duty in the ER and had a patient who came to him with a hip fracture. He advised her to get her surgery done under local anesthesia because of her other medical issues. He told her, "That way you wont feel anything under your hip and there will be no complications too." She answers him say, "I haven't felt anything there love, since my husband died years ago." LOL I did have my laugh for this morning.

That sweet woman has maintained her sense of humour. I think, that's how we people in our golden years tend to be so happy almost most of the time-- our sense of humour. Hahaha!

@everwonderwhy She has indeed. I love that sense of humor I wish all people in their golden years were as cheerful as you and this sweet lady.

@sofssu I think, having several children, or the lost of a loved one or any some form of pain or fear make us this way--adrenalin response. As our coping mechanism. You know, "A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones (drains ones strength)."

@sofssu Yeah that's right. It's up in Scotland. I played in a football tournament there about 35 years ago. It seemed like a nice city back then. I have no idea what it's like now.
