It might be clear from my previous post that this was my first experience with an emergency room since I was about three years old and my brother had an encounter with a mall mannequin.
The first thing I asked our Zoomcare doc was, “The emergency room? Are there going to be people without legs in there?” That’s what my mother says I said, and I believe her. I was actually in shock at that moment. It’s amazing I didn’t say something far sillier.
For some reason, a very sick little girl had a lot of fun in the waiting area of the emergency room. Instead of walking pneumonia, I would call it jumping high pneumonia, as that is what she ventured to do.
Now that she is recovered from pneumonia, I hope to retire my new moniker.
