! z0 d- z7 Y$ x: u9 BIt was a busy morning, about 8:30 , when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.
+ I( `% [3 i$ v; b+ p; E7 S' x+ i! w# wI took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound., Q5 B2 f! |" h+ ^7 ]* h3 w; f  c1 I

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health.

真正读这篇文章时,很差的E文底子让我读得很吃力,不得不借助万能的google翻译。

读完之后,心有所感。谁能在雨中翩翩起舞,谁就拥有了真正的美丽人生。
怨去吹箫,狂来说剑,两样销魂味。
我是一窍不通看不懂,也不会读!
爱到心破碎,也别去怪谁,只因为相遇太美,就算流干泪,伤到底,心成灰,也无所谓。   
爱要说出来
只有曾天真给过的心,才了解等待中的甜蜜
