"Do u want me 2 take u 2 ER?" text was received early Friday morning from a friend/co-worker and I was at the hospital in a half hour. I had to promise to call for pickup when finished and tests results finalized. He's not from around here. I knew it doesn't work that way. One can sit for hours in the ER waiting room before being admitted, and they don't do anything quickly - just thoroughly and then some.
Doctor: well it looks like you are now.
Surprise!!! There was a sudden commotion at the nurse's station and 3 nurses deliver a beautiful basket of fresh flowers, mostly carnations (my fave) and other blooms from my bosses at Dos Locos. The carnations actually have their real scent and everyone stuck their nose in to verify that fact. Sure cheered me up, even with the fever.
