Pope Gets a Feeding Tube
From the Vatican: It appeared that the Pope has been complaining about being uncomfortable, something associated with the insertion of a feeding tube which is quite common. According to a reliable source the Pope smiled and added another comment, patted the physicians arm and bowed his head. It took some time to understand what he had said, understandable under the circumstances; it was later found that the Pope had indeed complained about the irritation caused by the feeding tube. He then had stopped and said, “Thank God this isn’t Florida and you’re name isn’t Greer!”, again, according to a reliable source.
