Former WBKR Intern Whitney Merritt Featured in Hilarious Post-Surgery YouTube Video

This is a scream!  Former WBKR intern Whitney Merritt recently had foot reconstruction surgery at Ohio County Hospital.  Her younger sister Helen was armed with a video camera in the recovery room.  Brace yourselves!  Whitney is out of it, insanely emotional (she cries/sobs a lot) and absolutely hilarious.  In fact, you have to watch at least until she bargains with the Redeemer to let her go to the restroom.
