Robin’s 2 cents

A doctor told a wife to give her husband one pill a day and one drink of whisky to improve his strength after an operation. A month later, the doctor called to see how her husband was doing. 

“Well,” said the wife, “he’s a little behind with the pills, but he’s six months ahead with the whisky.”
