Thankfully, at the 7 o’clock hour, traffic headed east is mostly home, so not in our way. Thankfully the hospital is a children’s hospital, so we got a room right away, since the hives hadn’t really diminished to a comfortable level. Thankfully I know the way since it’s now my hospital of choice. Thankfully we have an ER copay that is quite manageable.
I am lying on my back, on a pebbled, concrete bench. I am in the shade, under the tree. It’s near 80 in the sun and 70 in the shade. A cool breeze keeps me comfortable. I open my eyes, and through my sunglasses, I see brilliant blue flickering through the moving green leaves. This is the epitome of summer. This beautiful summer day makes memories.
