Hospital

*Just a processing poem. Never underestimate Covid. The machine is beeping non stop As my head pounds along with it Someone is screaming down the hall The days are all merging together The hospital has a way of doing this Many times, I fought my way through Plunging numbers and pain too Balancing with vitals up and down I ask a nurse for some paper and pen She only brings me a small piece I think, little does she know how much I write! Thankfully, I make it home again Now, time to process what went on there Not wanting to be told to go back Illness is a battle you can only keep hoping to win But, appreciate for home increases every time!

No one likes going to hospital but we'd be lost without them. Tom

I can't think of anyone who likes going to the hospital. Even my daughter who is a nurse. Glad you are home Heidi.
