Tingling

CT Scan

Woke up tingling
Confused and scared
Frozen by fear
Unsure of the future
Knot in my stomach
Breathing so rapid
Anxiety so high
Must get to bathroom
I am going to die.

Ambulance called
Siren out loud
Questions answered
Strapped in the gurney
Vomit from fear
Joking to lighten
Blood pressure rises
Live afer all.

Zipping through traffic
Breakneck speed
Vitals are tested
Calming down now
Entering emergency
Testing and questions
Down in the bed
Machines that go beep
Mother so scared
Quiet comes now.

Off to the CAT scanner
Rolling down the hall
Fear of the unknown
Noises so weird
Shaken by vibrations
Pink Floyd laser show
Strapped in no motion
Circles of magnets
Scan the brain.

Pee into plastic
Eyes finally close
Told of the bleeding
No surgery now
Drugs applied flowing
Into my arm
God now hold sacred
Even if lied
Nurses are buzzing
Children do cry.

New MRI morning
Pictures to take
Rolled down a hallway
Noises fill the hospital
Lights skip a beat
Other sick pass by
Doors open wide
Sailing past doctors
Back to my room.

Lunch served by Asian
Potatoes are mashed
Gravy is thick
Jello so red
Time for a sleep
First in a while
Blood is drawn
Another test is done.

Haircut is given
Manbun installed
Tablet delivers news
What happened today
Watching the social
Tales of the stroke
Love is outpouring
Friends shed a tear.
