Lousy Way to Start a Day

An ambulance call came in at 1:30am. We transported a friend of mine who was in an ‘altered mental state.’ When we were in the hospital waiting for a bed, he looked at me, asked me for a hug and told me “I don’t think I’m going home.”

Not being a doctor, medic, or even an EMT, I couldn’t guess what his issue was. All I know is, that at 2:30 in the morning, when a friend looks you in the eye from a hospital gurney and tells you he’s not going to make it, that’s creepy.
