Alice Is in the Hospital.......
Two nights ago,Sept 4, at 2 am my time, I was awoken by the phone ringing. When I awoke, my first thought was Alice. She had asked if she could call me at any time if she needed help. Of course, I said yes.
So, when the phone rang I asked what was wrong. She was in pain, and thought she needed to go to the hospital. I threw on clothes and walked over to her home. I used the key to get in she had given me, for just this occasion.
Her leg was very swollen, hot, and bursting surface blood vessels. The asked what I thought, and I suggested we call 911 for an ambulance. She had thought the same, as well. I packed her toiletries , glasses, a change of clothes, her medications, washed and dried her so she was clean to go.
I waited outside for the EMT's, gave them a quick assessment and in we went. Now Alice was in fine form. She told the first EMT that she was so glad they had sent a good looking young man. The EMT was caught off guard, but laughed, and Alice laughed. The second EMT walked in and Alice commented, "Another handsome one" "Do I get to ride with one of you?" As an escort? The young men laughed, were perfect gentlemen and professional, but you could tell they were very happy to have a pleasant and humorous patient in their care.
Leave it to Alice! She is a hot sketch, even when she is scared and nervous!!!! The neighbor across the street, went to the hospital with Alice. Sandy and Alice have been friends for 13 years. I went back in the villa, made Alice's bed after I stripped the sheets off, put the dirty linen in the washer, locked up and went home to bed. By now the sun is rising. Time for a nap!
Later in the day, I finished the laundry, locked up the villa, and called Sandy. Alice was all right, but she was being admitted in the hospital. By this time, I went to the hospital so Sandy could go home and stayed with Alice till she was in a room. She was very tired and fell fast asleep the room. I was relieved she was ok, and sound asleep. I went home to tell Sandy. After a quick sandwich, a dog walk, feeding the girls, a shower, I crashed and slept all night. I got this sunset tonight which I am using for a back Blip for Alice's trip to the hospital.
