Yea, last Wednesday my fever spiked to 103.05. I’d been sick for about a month with a cough and cold. I kept telling the wife I’ve got a Drs. appt. coming up in about a month, I’ll be ok till then, “cough,”. A week later same thing, She says “will you please let me make you an appt.” Da, I don’t need a Nocter cough, weeze, see, I still have my inhaler, cough, sneeze, fart, gasp”. Another week goes by, She pleas again “Mike your sick, you have got to go to the Dr. or the Hospital.”” Do I ain’t Dat bat yet,cough, gag. See I hardy cough ady boor.” Which bring us to Wednesday of last week. She gets home from work. I’m out like a light on the couch. Now this is all from my wifes memory, I didn’t have one until Sunday late afternoon.
She threatened to call my son and forcibly take me to the hospital. It was 7pm and she wasn’t foolin around any more. She read my temp. with one of those ear thermometers, 103.5. She said I wrestled with a blanket for a half hour thinking it was my coat. She told them in the waiting room they were going to have trouble with me. So they got me in a room and I told them I wasn’t staying and argued long enough and hard enough they called 6 security guards to stand outside my door. I told them I could take all. They all said yes sir. My wife was in the next room conspiring against me. They finally came in and gave me a shot of “anti-biotics.” I awoke lying on a gerny hooked up to all kind of bags and machines. I grabbed everything and jerked it out of my arm, after talking to a little black fellow that wanted to go back to Africa, but was sick and no one would treat him. So I told him here you can take my place. Well, blood was squirting everywhere and a nurse grabbed me, of course I told her to leave me alone I was headed home. All these people began running around bells and whisles blareing then here they came, and surrounded me, one from behind. I awoke Sunday late afternoon. They said I had pneumonia, I told her I wasn’t that bad, it was only in one lung.
