He started to cry and I knew he needed to eat. Being brand new at nursing I was not yet skilled at getting myself in and out my clothes. The doctor walked right in as I was pulling my boob out. I looked up, smiled and cheerily said, 'Hi, we are your new patients.' He smiled and walked right out."

I remember the bartender coming over and asking if he could get me anything and then he realized what I was doing, turned around and walked away."
