Lloyd, Sasha and Rick all got themselves a coffee and a sandwich when they got to the hospital cafeteria.
“Well, Rick you’ve sure had some excitement with us this weekend,” said Lloyd.
“That’s for sure. I could do with a little less of an adrenaline buzz the next time I go camping with you guys,” said Rick.
“ I’m amazed that you would even consider going anywhere with us again,” said Sasha.
“Ah, come on, you guys are already like a second family to me,” Rick said with a smile.
Lloyd was watching the clock in the cafeteria closely. When the forty-five minutes was up Lloyd told the others that it was time to get back to the waiting area of the emergency ward.
The group waited nervously for word from Dr. Pauls. After about ten minutes he arrived.
“Fortunately, I’ve got good news for you. I think Misty is going to be all right. The results of the brain scan came back and nothing abnormal was found. This is a good indication that there won’t be any permanent damage from Misty’s head injury. She did, however, suffer a mild concussion so I would ask that you keep a close eye on her for the next few weeks,” the doctor reported.
“Oh, praise God!” Lloyd said. Lloyd isn’t a Christian but these were the first words to come out of his mouth.
“Praise Jesus!” said Sasha in a loud voice.
“When can she go home?” asked Rick.
“We’ll keep Misty under observation for the rest of the night and the morning but if she remains stable you should be able to pick her up at about two in the afternoon,” Dr. Pauls answered.
“I better call Mom,” said Sasha. Sasha walked the short distance to the pay phone to call her mother.
“Hi, Mom. I’ve got great news. Dr. Pauls said that Misty is probably going to be all right. He told us that the brain scan did not show any evidence of a permanent brain injury,” said Sasha excitedly.
“Hallelujah! Praise Jesus!” said Sheila almost screaming into the phone. I’ll have to phone all the prayer warriors and thank them for their prayer’s for Misty’s healing.”
