OMG, she tells the best stories! And she is learning to laugh instead of cry. (Don't know if I mentioned the time she called me, sobbing, when she had the worst wk of her life.) Last wk, there was a funeral at the hospital. One of the long-term, elderly pts. Friends, aka other pts, were asked to come up and say a word or two. You can see where this is going ... One man stood up and sang, "JeeeeeeeeeessssssuS ... IS ..." That's it. He sat down. (Is what?) Another man stripped naked and ran around the room. A toothless woman, who chews her tongue and acts really tough, (and is schizophrenic), stood up and said, "I'm a hit man. If you want to know what happened to your mother, I killed her. I'll see you afterward for payment." Yes, the family was there. easy child said they smiled and said, "Thank you ..." and just blew her off. AND her supervisor offered her a job!!!! She asked how much longer easy child is in school (a yr-and-a-half ... and then PhD program). Oh. "Well, if you need a ltr of recommendation for graduate school, I'll be happy to give one."
