Today I had to go to the medical centre for an ECG. I was lying there all wired up, nurse switched on the machine, she ripped off the print out and handed it to me.

OH NO, said I, I am gone. There was a perfectly straight horizontal line right across the paper !!!

She checked and one of the connections had fallen off my ankle :rolleyes:

Hi Cheerful Carole,

What a hoot!

So now are you going to get t-shirts that say, "ECG Survivor"?

Or, "Scared Straight".

Or, "Professional Flatliner"...
Warm Hugs,

Hi carole,

This was the first thread I came to...thank you for your great sense of humor and sharing it with us!

Your printout likely...after the "Straight liner... showed: This is a person who has a sweet heart!
Special Hugs,
