Dark Tails

It is the night, when shadows linger, goblins and ghosts call, and tricks appear like magic!   Are you ready for Hallow's Eve?

I have struggled to write about my doctor's appointment. visit.  I was startled, when I went to the hospital last week. A lot of gory creations were displayed in every department. Skeletons at the x-ray department, fine.  Pumpkins, love'em, but creepy, slimy zombie type masks, just seem out of place in the hospital or were they?  As I approached Ortho department, I felt a wave of apprehension.  Is this really where I should be?   When my name was called, I didn't get a normal attendant. Mine was in a white lab coat, looking like Rip Taylor, the Master of Mayhem.  He didn't disappoint....  He took me back to the labyrinth of rooms, finally, we reached  the last door on the left.

He asked about my medical history, told me my options. I chose the deep tissue massage. He warned me, it will feel like you have wrestled a giant.  I assured him I had done that before. My husband is almost 6'4, one time I had low blood sugar and fought him.  My son said, he had never seen anyone so brave or stupid. Your treatment will be with spoons and rocks, somehow I didn't think he was kidding.
He offered other suggestions, but the side effects didn't seem worth the trouble.

He seemed intrigued when I had mentioned Adak, it was part of my medical history.  Then he starts to show me photos on his computer.  "Do you recognize this?"   I did....I mentioned where I use to work on Bering Hill and other key points. Then he lifts his left hand up high, waving it about.... "Yeah this is where it happened".   I look, fingers are missing. I only see his index finger and thumb. He tells me he shot his hand, gun on his ATV went off.  Then he makes a crude joke, then another comment about not sure what kind of career he was going to have.

I connect the dots, he use to be a surgeon Then more photos and then red flashes on the screen, a graphic photo of his shot hand, it is disgusting. My mind is frozen, except for one thought...Why am I seeing this?   I  slowly back out of the room and muttered, "You made the best of it" as I hurry along down the hall, it strikes me. This was his point, live with it...    Zombies are amongst us; beware!

Ella, are you serious? Did that really happen? That's weird!

Nope, I haven't had any Zombie encounters, though I feel like one right now!

Thank you for your shout out! :D

Yes, it really happened and I'm still stunned! I know he was trying to make the point, live with it. But my situation is different! I bet he isn't in pain anymore, physically. I bet emotionally he struggles. I bet I'm not the first one he has done this to~ I'm am in pain, every day...it isn't the same thing.

Life is stranger than fiction!
You are welcome! I think this is the perfect Halloween treat~ :D

Ella, what an awful story- I hope you can go see, someone more "normal"- He can`t use his own sad story to scare the patients.
Happy Halloween- without Zombies,please.
What an awful 'bedside manner!' Sounds like a horrible experience.
Oh help Ella I have a hospital appointment next Monday. shall watch out for the zombies.

Wonderful to read.
ah, looks like you got full Halloween treatment at the hospital :)

Zombies are always hanging out in my dreams. Sorry to hear about your pain. Ever try flexology and flower therapy. It helps with my fatigue. It might help with your pain.

Life is so strange (Missing Persons song). And no zombie experiences for me, unless I count that checker at Target who seems to be in need of a brain.
