Almost, But Not Quite

I was working at the old people's home yesterday evening, and had almost finished changing a lady's diaper when her phone rang.  I answered it and it was her son.  She was all clean, but not quite tucked in properly.  She would be fine on her own for a few minutes, so I handed her the phone and went on to clean up my area.

I heard her half of the conversation, and could imagine his side.  She answered first, "Oh, hi, nice to hear from you."

"I'm fine."

Then came this, "Well, they were just in the middle of..." and she paused and wrinkled her brow... "...of.... well... I was going to say a sex change... but that doesn't seem like the right word."
