Holy Week at the Hospital: Reflection

Thy life on earth was grief, and thou art still
Constant unto it, making it to be
A point of honour now to grieve in me,
And in thy members suffer ill.
They who lament one cross,
Thou dying daily, praise thee to thy loss.

Holy Week at the Hospital: Observation#2

Some doctors say stupid things.
I.e. "have you thought of taking a
sleeping pill?"
(Suggestion: look at the list of current meds
you are holding in your hand.)
"you need to trysome smile therapy!"
Code Silvery gray!

Holy Week at the Hospital: Observation#1

Code Red means fire. When it is called they close the room door.
Code Gray is "combative person".
They call that when they see me coming towards the nursing station.
Code Silver, on the other hand means "person with a weapon".
That may be next. Or perhaps "code silvery gray?
