Last night I had a ball at the emergency room. Party at the ER, well I went in for extreme pains in the upper right abdominal quadrant figuring, there goes the gall bladder, so that was not exactly a party. Yet, what's a person to do while in between grabbing their flank and panting in 10+ pain, well make the people around you laugh who have been up all night under stress and strain.
When you are busy helping others, your own pains and problems are no longer all that big.
PS. In the end all the organs were nice and healthy and they are not really sure what the problem was.
