during rounds this morning, we saw one of our patients who is from very rural alabama. his language is barely intelligible - but according to his wife, this is normal. he's been very sick, but is getting a lot better the past few days.
my attending: "so, do you think he's recovering well, back to baseline?"
patient's wife: "yeah. he flipped all of y'all the bird when you walked out. that's normal for him."
