I spent the evening at Luther's room. He has three roomates. It's a weird thing. Not many curtains. All having different experiences, together in one room.
Luther was the only one with a visitor in the five hours I was there. I did buy the two guys I'd met yesterday little get well sock monkeys. They seemed a little surprised...
Modesty kind of flies out the window when you're in the hospital. They proverbial open back hospital gown. One guy didn't have a shirt on at all. Come to think of it, neither did Luther. Weird body function noises. The Oscars on one tv, Modern Family on another, some sports thing on a third. Connected somehow but really, not at all.
Some Marines came in to visit. It was heartwarming although as I type this, maybe a little funny. I have a pencil and a bumper sticker from the visit. Luther said another branch of the military stopped in earlier to visit, too. The band of brothers. More disconnected connections.
Luther's in again tonight. I keep thinking he's just in for a little tune up. They're pumping him full of fluids, vitamins, minerals, food, medications. He'll come back to me a little healthier.
Another quiet night.
