Been there. Not a week, but several days at least. It made trying to get to sleep hell.

The hospital bill *should* be enough to scare the hiccups outta him.

How is the fact that he is a Father in any way relevant to the story?

a month of hiccups proceeded my father's heart attack

which cured the hiccups

The only cure for hiccups is constant, prolonged anal sex, and I don't mean the easy kind.

Not just a father, but a father of four. That makes it like, 4 times as relevant.

Step:

1: Take a $5-$20+ denominate bill
2: Hold in front of the hiccuper for 30 seconds asking them to concentrate on the bill
3: Tell them that if they can hiccup in 1 min as you time them they get the bill
4: Make sure they know you are serious
5: Time them - Hiccups cured!

/seriously works

I have done the above trick 50+ times in my life, never had to give up the bill.

The father of a friend started hiccuping and could not stop. Finally went to the hospital and had brain scan done. They did not see the tumor, and meds stopped the hiccups. A month later the hiccups came back and the tumor had grown past the survivable stage, he died shortly thereafter. It turns out that hiccuping is an early warning sign for brain cancer in some cases.

Take hiccups seriously when they do not go away...

This. Badness in the brainstem can cause uncontrollable hiccups and vomiting. So I really hope this guy had an MRI.

years ago a co-workers husband had the cups bad. hospitalized him. after 2 weeks they were going to try some god knows what on him. as they rolled him down the hall to slice him open (?) the cups stopped.

/i met you, Fritz. no personality dooshbag.

Best hiccups cure..

Hold both arms straight up above your head.
Keep them there while you drink a cup of water (in lots of small swallows) that your friend is holding.
Hiccups gone.

(the explanation I heard for why this works is that cranial nerve XI controls both the trapezius muscle and swallowing. Tensing the muscle while swallowing stops the tics)

Simple cure, works most of the time for me, for someone else who has the hiccups.

Ask them if they have the hiccups
They say yes
You say, "Prove it."

Watch funny look on their face as hiccups usually stop. Ever try to hiccup for real on purpose?

/Not that this would have worked for what this poor bastard went through

After 5 I start saying 'Kill me' each time. I'm serious.

Tell him his eldest daughter is pregnant. That should work.

Apparently, prostate cancer can cause hiccups. He better get some fapping in.

I also saw on Untold Stories of the ER that you can cure hiccups by pressing just above your eyebrows because it stimulates the vagus nerve.

1) Hold breath. Suck in as much air as possible.
2) Make the swallow motion without swallowing anything
Repeat 2 a few times
Repeat 1 a few times
Keep repeating 1 and 2 until you almost pass out.
Problem solved.
