Like me, my father is a physician. He did his residency many years ago, back in the days when residents were real cowboys, who worked ungodly hours and without ancillary services.
But he generally doesn't tell me any stories about his hard work or any miraculous lives saved. Mostly the stories he tells me are about penises. At least, the ones I remember.
He told me a story about a patient he had who was a hard stick, but they really needed blood. They tried getting blood from both arms and even the feet. No luck. So where did they get finally blood from? The dorsal vein of the penis.
Moral: Don't blow all your veins because the consequences are HORRIBLE.
He had another story about how he was putting a Foley in a patient during a call, and forgot to pull down the foreskin again when he was done. The patient got a terrible rash and he felt really bad about it.
Moral: If you're an uncircumcized male, request an uncircumcized male to put in your Foley. Or alternately, a woman experienced with such men.
