Friend In Need

On Friday evening I got a call from one of my closest friends. He told me that he was having some trouble breathing. Since he has asthma I didn't think that much of it asked if it was similar to an asthma attack. That's when he told me that he was having crushing chest pain and shortness of breath. That changes things. I asked him to call 911 immediately, then take some Aspirin. I called him back about 2 minutes later and he said that paramedics were on the way. I did a quick assessment over the phone as best as I could. He didn't end up having a heart attack. He had pericarditis. He's home now and recovering well.

This was his final meal at the hospital before getting discharged. I can't figure out why hospital food gets such a bad rap. That's supposed to be turkey.

I love turkey that looks like a paper napkin covered in gravy!
