Echo-cardiogram

I went to the cardiologist today for an echo-cardiogram. The doctor prepared the machine and began the process of taking a sonogram of my heart.

"Huh," he said. "That's weird."

I stared at him with an expression of curiosity and growing concern. "What?"

"You said you're a law student, right?" the doctor asked.

"Yes," I replied, confused.

The doctor exclaimed, "Well, there's actually a heart in here! Want me to take a picture for you so you can prove it to people once you're an attorney?"

I thought this was serious until I got to the "law school student" part . You got me.

Good one.

I actually had an echocardiogram once. I was diagnosed with a systolic ejection murmur when I was 18 and had it worked up by a cardiologist who told me I was fine but could use a bit more exercise. Four years later I went to join the Navy and couldn't find the paperwork from the first cardiologist, so they sent me to a second one who did the echocardiogram. I got to watch my own heart beat on closed circuit tv, which was pretty cool. They checked out my heart valves and re-confirmed that I was fine. My heart works just as it should. It's just a little noisy, kind of like an OM617.

I have a right atrial aneurysm where the fossa ovalis should be. If it ever bursts I drop dead. Just another of the fun things I live with.

Then being in the sometimes blood pressure rising atmosphere of OD is just your way of telling the Grim Reaper "I dare you?"

Coming to in the CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit) and seeing a priest at your side asking if you want Communion. Would that be a double dare.?

If this is going to slide into a doctor joke thread.....ever hear the one about the Chinese doctor and Ed Zackary disease?
