Empty Hospital Room

Posted in Everyday by Witt on February 3, 2010

My mom was admitted to a community hospital this morning. She suffered dizziness due to high blood pressure. 200/110. An ambulance near her work was nice enough to take her, with sirens and all. Everybody immediately left work or dropped whatever they’re doing to attend to her. That’s how important she is. She was in the ER when we arrived, me and my brother. My sister was with her already. Mom was in a good mood. That was nice. The doctor suggested she stay in the hospital for the night, she gladly obliged. Dad arrived. The gang is complete.

We arranged for her to have a suite room. So she can be on her own. We don’t want her to share a room with somebody ill while she’s in this vulnerable state. After getting her settled, we left for home. My sister stayed to watch over her for the night, she’ll go straight to work from the hospital tomorrow and dad will take over for the rest of her stay. On our way out, I noticed an empty room. I paused for a while. It just affirmed my belief when I was younger. “An empty hospital room is the saddest sight in a hospital.” Think about it.
