Cupboard Monster update

The cupboard monster (the mother) is doing much better today and even managed to get some sleep. She has not eaten much yet but is still hooked up to iv fluids, so that isn't a problem.
The operation to insert a few screws into her leg is scheduled for Thursday.

A screw joke:

A well known rich businessman's wife broke her hip. The businessman got the best bone surgeon in town to do the operation. The operation consisted of lining up the broken hip and putting in a screw to secureit.

The operation went fine, and the doctor sent the business man a fee for his services of $5000. The businessman was outraged at the cost, and sent the doctor a letter demanding an itemized list of the costs.

The doctor sent back a list with two things:
1 Screw $ 1
Knowing How To Put It In $4999


  1. Excellent! I used to work in Workers Compensation Insurance and it was my job to approve and make payments to doctors. There were certain amounts allowed and some docs loved to elevate their fees. So I had the privelege of correcting their bill and sending them the proper fee. One bone doc took umbridge and spend hours tearing the check up into little teeny, tiny fragments, and he sent them back in the envelope!
