Is she a cephalopod?

Getting ready for the day, and reading another doctor's note on a patient coming in this morning:

"Her pain can involve 1 to 4 limbs at a time, but never more than that."

The fun never stops at Dr Grumpy's Laugh and Limb Emporium. Keep up the good fight.

Oh well we wouldn't want any more than 4 limbs involved at a time now would we?

Work has been getting in the way of adequate blogging but I've been catching up on some of your old posts and well I'm crying because I've been laughing so hard - especially after reading about your kids being naked on the trampoline!

lmfao! it must be that damn phantom pain rearing its ugly head again! just don't tell the other patients...i can picture a stampede of patients arriving for medications to fix the pain within the realm of their auras....

Perhaps this is a patient with an extra limb? (Admittedly, I've never heard of someone having an extra limb that's more than just a nuisance.)
