“Oh my!” exclaimed Nellie the Nurse, seeing Franny Granny pacing the floor of the emergency department. “Maybe you should come sit.”
“I am too upset to talk,” said Franny Granny, with tears streaming down her face. “I got a call that my granddaughter, Tracey is here. I am so worried. I don’t know if she has that nasty coryvirus.”
“Let me see what I can find out,” said Nellie the Nurse.
Nellie the Nurse had just finished working a twelve hour shift. She was exhausted. Her feet were aching and all she wanted to do was go home. However, she could not turn her back on someone who needed help.
Nellie the Nurse found out that Franny Granny’s granddaughter was at the hospital earlier but had already been released. She had a cut finger that had required stitches.
“Oh I am so glad she doesn’t have that virus,” said Franny Granny, relieved. “Thank you so much for finding out what is going on.”
“No worries,” said Nellie the Nurse, smiling.
“You are so sweet and kind,” said Franny Granny. “I will let you get back to work. I will go home to find my granddaughter now.”
“I am actually finished for the day,” said Nellie.
“Don’t let me hold you up,” said Franny Granny. “If it weren’t for that fact that we have to practice social distancing, I would give you a huge hug.”
“I understand,” said Nellie the Nurse. “These days, it is the thought that counts.”
