Wit under extreme adversity

So my father is very weak and the kind nurses come in:

Nurses: Are you comfortable Mr Balbin
Dad: doesn’t reply, his eyes are closed and he is uncomfortable
Nurses: We will move you around to a more comfortable position
Dad: says nothing
Nurses complete the re-arrangement and ask ‘Are you okay Mr Balbin, does anything hurt
Dad: only my pocket

Gold!
