Gee, Thanks for the Demo

I'm seeing a grizzled old cowboy this morning (boots, belt buckle, big ol' hat) for coordination problems, and am trying get an idea of what his limitations are.

Dr. Grumpy: "Do you have any problems combing your hair?"

Mr. Oldcowboy: (lifts up hat): "I ain't got no hair".

Dr. Grumpy: "Any trouble brushing your teeth?"

Mr. Oldcowboy: (pulls out dentures): "Ain't got those, either".

Well, at least he was honest!

I hope you didn't ask him about his ability to hit the toilet when he pees!

Reminds me of the patient I was doing neuro checks on: "show me your teeth." He pulled out his dentures for my inspection.

At least he can follow commands!

Ask him if he can still saddle up his horse!

reminds me of the time my wife (on her ambulatory care rotation) asked a diabetic man if he checked his feet daily. He pulled up his pants showing both prosthetic legs, "ma'm, I have no feet." hillarious!!!
