ER Express

He was at his doctor's office half an hour before it opened.  He was able to be seen first.  He told the doctor he needed a test.  He showed her his ostomy bag.  "I think it's blood."

"You don't need a test.  I can tell it's blood."  She sent him to the emergency room.

At the emergency room, they asked if they could help him.

"My doctor . . ." 
And they completed his sentence with his doctor's name. 
"We have your records.  Come here"

Wow!  The last time he went to an emergency room he sat for more than an hour before triage.  Guess having a worried doctor sending you counts for something.

He was admitted into the hospital.  A GI Bleed Scan cast no light on the problem.   Great fun was had with prep for a colonoscopy that night.
