Jessie's Assessment

Nurses Training

I thought I had an ulcer

Several kinds of cancer

How I started painting

The pain was terrible

I thought I had an ulcer

They thought I had an ulcer. They did all kinds of examinations. No, nothing wrong with me. It's all in your head. So I was loading down with Maalox, and the nurses used to tease me. Jessie's taking Maalox for the ulcer she don't have. I remember that. Well, it wasn't an ulcer. It was colon cancer. One morning I got up and I had flooded the toilet with blood. I went immediately to the hospital and immediately they were pouring blood in me. Then in about two days I had surgery. That was it. I got well, ten years I got well.
