A Little Writing Excerpt
A short snippet from Rockybado
After the surgery, Brett Ingram was wheeled into the recovery room. When the nurse woke him up, it took him a while to open his eyes. He was hooked up to a heart monitor, and he also had the pulse oximeter on his finger, with an IV stuck in his arm. When he finally got back to his senses, his throat felt like it was on fire. His ears were pretty sore as well. Overall, he was really thirsty, and he was wondering where his mom and Dawson, his older brother, were.
Brett’s eyes felt very heavy. He wanted to sleep for as long as he could, and the nurse encouraged him to do that.
The nurse offered him a cherry popsicle to suck on to alleviate the pain, and she also dampened some sponges for him to suck on. Even though this helped a little, Brett was still incredibly thirsty. But he couldn’t use a straw for at least two weeks.
While Brett was sleeping in the recovery room, he felt a cold metal thing on his chest, but he was too out of it to open his eyes and try to figure out what it was. In his subconscious, he knew exactly what it was, but he was still sleeping soundly.
It was the nurse’s stethoscope.
