New Drug For Women Viagra

New drug for women viagra menwithbabies

New drug for women viagra I guess in its time, new drug for women viagra this was supposed to be a very funny little ad.

New drug for women viagra How times have changed!

New drug for women viagra Now I see men with strollers all the time.

New drug for women viagra Men may not actually give birth to the babies, new drug for women viagra but the men I know are so much more involved in their children’s life than the men of my father’s generation.

New drug for women viagra Look around you.

New drug for women viagra There are men pushing baby strollers everywhere you look.

New drug for women viagra Taking their babies to the park.

New drug for women viagra Toting them around in Snugglies or papoose-like back packs.

New drug for women viagra Changing diapers!

New drug for women viagra It’s a wonderful shift in how men are perceived in their role as fathers.

New drug for women viagra So when you’re tempted to think about how good the “good old days” were, new drug for women viagra just remember things aren’t too shabby in these “good new days”, new drug for women viagra either!

*****

Speaking of having babies (and don’t look at me, new drug for women viagra my eggs have gray hair and are using walkers), new drug for women viagra fertility is an interest of mine given my older daughter’s capacity to produce one dermoid cyst per day and my younger daughter’s PCOS.

(They must have inherited these genes from their father’s side of the family.)

Add to this my interest in the technology aspect of medicine and it isn’t surprising that I ran into some good stuff over at DocintheMachine. Steven (Palter, new drug for women viagra MD) has discovered a new reason for uterine infertility caused by the uterus literally shutting itself down.

Interesting stuff.

But what really makes this amazing is that sometimes you want the uterus to shut down, new drug for women viagra especially in cases of abnormal bleeding. New drug for women viagra So, new drug for women viagra the same research is being used to (1) work on stopping the reason a uterus will “shut down”” and (2) helping a bleeding uterus to shut down.

Call me a geek, new drug for women viagra but if you share the same interest in new medical technology, new drug for women viagra pay a visit Steven’s blog.

This is cutting edge research and it’s right here on/in the medical blogosphere!

******************************

Katarina was around 83 years old, new drug for women viagra give or take a year or two. New drug for women viagra She suffered from congestive heart failure and so was a frequent visitor to the coronary care unit in my small community hospital.

She was also high-maintenance. New drug for women viagra Very. New drug for women viagra High. New drug for women viagra Maintenance.

Everything had to be “just so”.

Her daughters were even more high maintainence than Katarina was. New drug for women viagra When they were in the unit they had constant questions and requests (and demands) for the nurse who was taking care of Katarina that day.

No, new drug for women viagra that’s not true. New drug for women viagra They had questions, new drug for women viagra requests and demands for every nurse in the unit. New drug for women viagra Every day. New drug for women viagra Every shift.

Being Katarina’s nurse wasn’t easy, new drug for women viagra by any stretch of the imagination.

I loved her.

*****

Katarina had immigrated from the “Old Country” after World War II. New drug for women viagra She and her husband had settled in New York and had moved out to California about ten years before we met.

Her husband was a tall, new drug for women viagra thin, new drug for women viagra stooped gentleman of 88. New drug for women viagra When he came to visit every evening he would always be in a shirt and sport coat. New drug for women viagra Shock white hair stood up from his head. New drug for women viagra He ambulated with a halting gait. New drug for women viagra He must have been quite handsome when he was a young man.

He also happened to be stone cold deaf.

Katarina wasn’t much better.

And so, new drug for women viagra every night, new drug for women viagra the shouting match began.

Oh, new drug for women viagra they weren’t angry with each other.

It was how they conversed.

“HUH?” “WHAT?” “I DON’T HEAR YOU SO GOOD!”

“LOOK AT ME WHEN YOU TALK TO ME, new drug for women viagra YOU’RE MUMBLING!” “I’M NOT MUMBLING, new drug for women viagra YOU’RE NOT LISTENING“.

“TURN DOWN THE TV!” “HOW COME YOU HEAR THE TV BUT YOU CAN’T HEAR ME?”

“STOP SHOUTING!” “WHO IS SHOUTING, new drug for women viagra IT IS YOU WHO IS SHOUTING!”

When you remember that back in the old days, new drug for women viagra Coronary Care Units were supposed to be an oasis of peace and a “no-stress zone”, new drug for women viagra it was enough to drive a unit of nurses to distraction.

Or laughter, new drug for women viagra depending on the conversation.

*****

The hospital was like home to Katarina and her husband in more ways than one. New drug for women viagra They would come every day and have dinner in the cafeteria. New drug for women viagra Every day.

I once asked Katarina if she actually liked eating in the cafeteria.

“Like?” she repeated. New drug for women viagra “It’s hot food, new drug for women viagra it isn’t expensive and I don’t have to cook it. New drug for women viagra What’s not to like?”

When she was admitted, new drug for women viagra we would often be ordering a guest tray for her husband. New drug for women viagra They would eat together in her room, new drug for women viagra the television blaring “Jeopardy” throughout the department.

*****

One day, new drug for women viagra it was suspiciously quiet in Katarina’s room. New drug for women viagra Her monitor showed Sinus Rhythm, new drug for women viagra the vitals were normal But something made me get up.

What I saw makes me wish I had a camera to this day.

Katrina and her husband were in the bed. New drug for women viagra He must have crawled over the siderail.

They were sitting side-by-side with their hands folded in their laps.

Her head was on his shoulder and his head was resting on top of hers.

“Jeopardy” was blasting on the televsion.

They were sound asleep.

*****

Katarina passed away one day when I was off-duty. New drug for women viagra The heart that had struggled for so long was at peace.

Her husband would come into the cafeteria for dinner. New drug for women viagra Alone. New drug for women viagra Every day. New drug for women viagra He just ambled slowly, new drug for women viagra eyes ahead. New drug for women viagra Sometimes I wondered if he even recognized us, new drug for women viagra remembered the nurses who took care of his wife for so many years.

One day he stopped coming. New drug for women viagra One of the nurses saw his obituary in the local paper.

*****

Katarina may be gone, new drug for women viagra but she never really left. New drug for women viagra Not me, new drug for women viagra anyway.

For you see, new drug for women viagra in about two weeks I’ll be unpacking my Christmas ornaments and a white Hallmark ornament with the sleigh on it will get a place of honor on my tree.

Katarina gave that ornament to me, new drug for women viagra way back in those early days of my career. New drug for women viagra It was my first gift from a patient.

Each year that I place it on the tree, new drug for women viagra I think of the character that was Katarina. New drug for women viagra I remember that precious tableau of the elderly couple asleep in the hospital bed; a marriage that had lasted over sixty years.

And I wonder if they have “Jeopardy” in heaven.
