Room 402

This has got to be one of the best stories I have read in a LONG time.

Be sure to read it all the way thru.... You won't regret it.


Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

Re: Room 402

I've been looking for JUST this sort of story to help explain why I'm not a big fan of corporate religion...

Re: Room 402

My view of hospitals and dying has always been colored by George C. Scott's/Diana Rigg's 1971 movie The Hospital.

One time they called me - my Mother was dying - she was supposed to be in Rehab/PT for a broken leg getting training prior to release. When I got there - rushed to ICU - she was there - they sorta thought - but no records of dying - after some searching(half a day) found her in one of the wings - very chipper with no memory of drug reaction.

Apparently - they overdosed/gave the wrong drugs to the wrong patient/ or something.

No one ever admitted to calling me.
