Friday flash 55

I pull the thin blanket to my chin. It’s cold. My stomach roils for lack of food and water.

A nurse breezes in and injects something clear into a tube. She rolls my bed into the hall and I feel quiet. Peaceful. Voices are talking, laughing, but I don’t understand.

The nurse pushes me into a bright room. Then suddenly it’s dark…dark…dark.

    Even when you work in a hospital, the experience of being a patient is totally different than you would imagine. Hopefully all went well and the outcome is good!

    Is this from The Bended Tree? I like the progression, very well written.

    ahh yes, the peacefulness, then the sleep. I like the way you expressed this. Well done!
