Three Things Challenge 497

Pensitivity101 Rules:

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.

I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

Your three words are:

CLOCK
MISSED
SURGERY

Thomas sat awkwardly in the hospital waiting room. He had received a phone call early this morning that Ginny had been taken from the school by ambulance. They couldn’t tell him why, but that he needed to get to the hospital because they were going to have to do surgery from the looks of things. He was listed as her contact person since her mother was too sick to be able to do anything and they were planning on getting married.

He hurriedly left work telling his Dad, that he had to go to be with Ginny at the hospital. They said she probably needed surgery.

Unfortunately he had missed seeing her before they took her back for surgery. He looked at the clock and the doctor should be out shortly he would think. What was taking so long?

“Mr. Banks?” The surgeon stood before him.

“Yes. Is she ok?”

“She is ok now, but her appendix burst before we could remove it. We had to clean the infection out and that is what took so long. Did she mention any pain before today? She should have had some warning pain before it burst.”

“She complained yesterday and the night before of some stomach pain, but Ginny doesn’t like to complain and she just mentioned it once and then didn’t say anything else. The school called me this morning to tell me that she had to have an ambulance take her to the hospital as she was complaining of severe stomach pain.”

“The didn’t know her appendix was about to burst though so they didn’t rush things along. Her appendix burst on the way in and so we had to rush her to surgery which is why you couldn’t see her first. They cleaned out the infection and she will be on IV antibiotics for a couple of weeks at least. She should recover with little difficulty as we caught it not too long after it burst. She was lucky.”

“Can I see her now?”

“Are you family?”

“She’s my fiancee and since her mother is not able to take care of her I am her chief contact person and I need to see her. I have to make sure she is ok and let her mother know.”

“Ok you can go in and see her for a little while and then you must leave so she can rest. Tomorrow you can spend some more time with her. She will be here for a couple of weeks or maybe more depending on how fast she heals. We have to stop the infection.

“Ok, Doctor, thanks!”
