“I’m so worried,” my friend said to his nurse as she plumped up the pillows for him. “Last week, I read about a man who was in the hospital because of heart trouble, and he died of malaria.”
“Relax,” the nurse said smiling. “This is a first-rate hospital. When we treat someone for heart trouble, they die of heart trouble.”
