It's a Miracle!

Old Woman with Cane

Doctor Bloomfield was known for his extraordinary treatment of arthritis. One day he had a waiting room full of people when an elderly woman, almost bent over in half, shuffled in slowly, leaning on her cane. When her turn came, she went into the doctor's office, and, amazingly, emerged within 5 minutes later, walking completely erect with her head held high.

A woman in the waiting room who had seen all this rushed up to her and said, "It's a miracle! You walked in bent in half and now you're walking erect. What did that doctor do?"

"He gave me a longer cane."

Yes, I laughed, too. You have to have humor. It's not a cure, but it's a great elixir.

I have a doctor I am going to tell this to, he will get a huge laugh out of it.

Thanks! I needed this! I have spinal arthritis, and when I am on uneven surfaces, I need to walk with a cane. I think I'll tell it with visual effects at our next Red Hat ladies luncheon.
