Mom is sleeping. We are whispering.
Nurse: The pain patch must be applied above fatty tissue to work.
Me: What are some good places?
Nurse: The abdomen can be a good spot.
Me: So if there's no fatty tissue, the patch doesn't work?
Me: I think we'll be ok with this.
Mom: <eyes still closed> I heard that.
Me: Oops, sorry mom. I wasn't saying you were fat.
Mom: Oh sure.
