[B]Heh, i guess you need to be careful with the word vent and him? He may bring out the ventilator for you lol.
Medical humor. Funny. Hee hee!!!
Okay, like bestblondrn, I'm married to an engineer....God bless ya, sister, btw...
. And like her, my husband is quite clueless about medical aspects of my job and frequently doesn't get it when I'm stressed/fried about certain things that go down at work.
He understands the 'big' things....like why it sucks to: code a baby for 2 hours, deliver a dead baby, deliver the baby without the doctor there, have a patient that poops continuously while she pushes, yadda yadda yadda....
What he doesn't have a clue about is why it sucks to: float, take care of a whiney pretermer, have to work all day with a doc you can't stand, and get blood splattered on your shoes (he thinks this is just par for the course....and even though it is it still SUCKS). He still gets upset when I have to work on Christmas...uh, DUH...I'm a NURSE, remember, honey??
Anyhoo, I think marriage can work with or without both partners being 'medical.' It's just a matter of the right personalities mixing with the willingness to meet in the middle on the career front, and at least making an EFFORT to understand what the other person is going through.
