Childrens Hospital and Escaping Everyday Life

Childrens Hospital is a comedy on Adult Swim based on medical television shows. In one episode, Dr. Lola Spratt faked her own death after she became fed up from receiving too many emails. I wish I could do that!

There comes a time when you just have to escape everyday life. That happened to me right after I returned from a vacation from Hawaii. I know, you’re thinking just how much time does she need to get away from it all? First you have to hear about my trip to understand.

It took 4 flights to get to our hotel. My mother got sick on one of the flights but didn’t tell anyone. By the next morning, our first full day in Hawaii, she was short of breath and not making sense. She had to be brought by ambulance to the hospital. The doctor couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her after about 4 hours in the emergency room.

We were all scared out of our minds. She felt sick the whole time we were there and spent most of the time sleeping. She hardly ate at all and was very weak. We dreaded the flights to return home.

When we did get home, I realized by the second day, that she was back to being out of it. She ended up back in the hospital. They still couldn’t figure out what was wrong. We had jetlag, hadn’t unpacked and were so worried. I just wanted to escape from everyday life and pretend my mother was fine.

She did end up fine. The only thing the doctor could think of was that she had trouble handling flying too much and the time change.
