Putting this in the metaphysical section as this is the only place I can see where my post fits...
Anyways, today my son had to go to the hospital to have an operation on his right knee (football injury).
When he was being booked in, the nurse had to weigh him and take his blood pressure. He stood on the digital scale and a reading didn't even
eventuate. We tried again... nothing. We all started to chuckle, thinking it was a bit of a laugh, and then the nurse climbed on and the scales
registered her weight. Tried my son again... nothing. I decided to climb on and my weight showed on the scale straight away. It was obvious the scales
were not broken. My son hopped on the scales again and, yet again, no result eventuated. We tried to get him to move both feet around on the scales
but we gave up as they would not work for him.
Next came the digital blood pressure monitor. When the nurse first tried to read his blood pressure the numbers on the machine just climbed up and
down but no result was found. The nurse tried again and the reading was very high ( 188 over 90 ) and did not seem right for someone his age so she
tried again. Eventually ( after the fourth go ) we got an OK reading. It was a bit low but it was alright.
His surgery was successful and is now in bed, at home, sleeping off his long day.
My question, to anyone in the know, can a person or a person's emotions effect digital equipment like this? Was my son so worried that he was some
how affecting the digital machines? I am just so baffled about why the digital scales. Maybe nothing, I realise, but interesting none the less.
