One Room

on October 22, 2014

Ebola
We have a room for it in our hospital, one room. But then, we are only a 184 bed hospital, so maybe it’s appropriate.

I shouldn’t, but I feel so removed from it, detached in a way. But then, that could be denial, fear, and the opinion that writing up a big post on something I’ve had no experience with seems somewhat pretentious.
______
I’ve been sitting here looking at this draft, unfinished draft, way too long.
______
Now I feel guilty that I have so little to say.

I am going to go pray.

    Leaving an empty space for such a terrible thing allows us to contemplate it without the clutter of words, actions, other people’s emotions. Your post is a virtual “one room.”

    There are other “unknowns” in the world, even in the USA. One lady came to the hospital with an excruciating headache and one day later she was unconscious. The following day her scan showed no brain, and then she was gone.

    A Korean grandfather came to his granddaughter’s wedding but was hospitalized with what they thought was pneumonia. The wedding had to be postponed. Test revealed a flesh eating bacteria in his lung.

    Health care workers everywhere take chances like these all the time. Life nor death is simple in the 21st Century.

    It’s the unknown/complexity of the human body and spirit that keeps me constantly intrigued with the profession. Beth, thank you for visiting.
