Did You See the Light?
We took turns visiting Dad in the hospital. One morning, Tracy walked into Dad’s room and he was having what looked like a seizure. Arms flailing, gasping for breath, the hospital staff trying to calm him down and replace the oxygen mask. It was a horrible thing to witness. Tracy felt so helpless.
“Why, oh why do these things always happen when I’m visiting alone?”
When all was as back to normal as it could be, Tracy looked at Dad and said: “So, Dad, did you see the light?”
He smirked and said “No”.
“Soooo… then… did you see flames?”
