Things Overheard at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital

I spent the weekend at the hospital - the very fine Royal Prince Alred Hospital - and it is amazing the things you hear while hanging out in the emergency ward.

Patient #1: "I went to poop this morning and my stool was bright white."
Doctor: "That's perfectly normal. Well, not really normal. But normal for someone in your condition."

Patient #2: "I came in because I was bleeding out of my belly button."
Doctor: "Out your belly button? I don't think I've seen that too often."
