Aggie Medical Terminology

This is for my dear friend, Charla (the dearest Aggie I know)!! I found this while looking through some Science cartoons that ex-Science teacher extrordinaire, Marilyn Johnson, left to me...

ARTERY..............................the study of fine paintings
BARIUM.............................what you do when CPR fails
BENIGN.........................what you are after you be eight
CESAREAN SECTION...................a district in Rome
COMA.........................................a punctuation mark
COLIC.................................................a sheep dog
CONGENITAL...................................friendly
DILATE..............................................to live long
FESTER......................................................quicker
G.I. SERIES........baseball games between teams of soldiers
MORBID.................................................a higher offer
NODE.................................................was aware of
OUTPATIENT..................................a person who has fainted
POST-OPERATIVE.......................a letter carrier
PROTEIN......................................in favor of young people
SECRETION.....................................hiding anything
SEROLOGY..................................study of english knighthood
TABLET.............................................a small table
TUMOR............................................an extra pair
VARICOSE VEINS.....veins which are very close together
URINE..........................................opposite of you're out!

**This is very "tongue in cheek" and very unlike my English-teacher friend, Charla.
She is probably the most "correct-speaking" person I know (after my newspaper editor Mother)...so, Charla, please take this lightly!!
