I think I almost killed a nurse.

So I was at the oncologist's office this morning, and I'm in the little bathroom holding a bottle full of urine.

I slide open the window, and there's a nurse there. She looks at me and I shove the bottle through the window, set it down, and say, brightly, "Here's some urine! Happy Valentine's Day!"

Something struck her about that. I expected a smile or a little laugh, but she went into the kind of laughter where you're afraid they're going to stop breathing. And she didn't stop laughing, even though she tried a few times to speak.

I didn't know the proper etiquette in that situation, and I WAS still, technically, in the bathroom, so I quietly slid the window closed and moved on. For all I know she's still laughing.

The moral? Some people really go for the urine humor.

Oh, and my tests came out fine, by the way. Next bloodwork is Wednesday. I'm free as a bird until then.

**HEALTH UPDATE: I get blood tests every week to monitor how my body is reacting to chemotherapy. The fact that my blood test came back fine simply means chemotherapy hasn't lowered my blood counts too severely, so I don't need supplements or transfusions. It doesn't mean I no longer have cancer. Sorry if there was any confusion.**
