Get back down!”(23). Sue was unhappy during this event because she thought the nurse should have known about the procedure she had gotten done. By having a negative behavior, the nurse can take away a client’s dignity, for instance “So there I lay, totally exposed, for forty five minutes. Occasionally she 'd look back toward me and say, I’ll be right there, Sue. All I could do was lie there, watching the clock and
The nurses in the doctor’s office are an example of how poorly people treat Phoenix because of her appearance. They both refer to Phoenix as a charity case. The narrator states “A charity case, I suppose,’ said an attendant who sat at the desk before her. […] ‘Oh, that’s just old Aunt Phoenix,’ […]” (6). The women both display an arrogant attitude towards Phoenix because they see her as nothing more than a helpless, little old lady, who needs charity handouts: “All right.’
I didn’t know how to respond. I wanted to ask what the hell a catheter even was but couldn’t find the courage to do so. I looked towards my mother pleading with eyes for her to explain the situation to me, I didn’t like feeling so lost. My mom must have got the message because she immediately took control and gave the doctor the go-ahead to do the procedure. Dr. Sarah sent in a group of nurses all dressed in the same colored scrubs with a gurney, strange tube like equipment, and they gave me a hospital gown to change into.
She told her mom that her and Rachel had gotten into a fight and that they would be ok. Later that night Rachel called because they were partners for the time capsule assignment and neither of them apologized. Lucy’s mom and Rachel’s mom called each other to figure out what had happened. Both the girls just said it was a minor thing and not to worry about it. Their moms didn 't agree to that statement and made them apologize to each other.
The elevator door shut leaving a silver reflection in my line of sight. My mother looked at me, knowing I was quite distressed for this event, and said “You’ll be fine, don’t worry.” I shrugged because she didn’t know what I was about to go through. After being sat down in my waiting room, a doctor walked in.
On November 8, 2016, I was in the ENT clinic and Henedia, the nurse’s coordinator, advised me to give out certificates of gratitude to the patients in the waiting room. As I was giving them out a patient stopped me mid sentence, she told me how she was dissatisfied with the level of care she was being provided in this clinic. She was telling me about the situation she was in and how the hospital did not help her in anyway and that they were rude to her when she had called the ENT clinic to make an appointment. As she was telling me all of this I was prevented to give out the rest of the certificates of gratitude to the other patients.
My mom started telling funny stories and my ex-husband, and my grandmother decided to go get something to eat, and once they were gone the doctor came in and said it was time to push. I was panicked and wanted my ex-husband and grandma back in the room and while they were wheeling me into the operating room, since twins are always born in an operating room, they made it back just in time. While I was pushing, one of the doctors noticed one of the heartrates dropping, she didn’t know which one it was, since the wires had gotten crossed, so they traced it back and it was Michael’s heartbeat that had dropped. Since Michael was the second to be born I had to have a C-section, if it was Minerva, his sister, then it wouldn’t have been a problem. They strapped my arms to the operating table, so my arms wouldn’t move during surgery, and put something pink on my stomach to disinfect it.
It started about a week into my visit. My nurse came in and lifted me to a wheelchair. She wheeled me to a side of the hospital I had never seen. Through the hallways we passed by kids of all ages that looked like wax figurines that got too close to the fire place. All I remember is thinking that I did not want to end up looking like that.

She then goes on to scream for Teddy, her little brother, wanting to know how he 's doing, and she doesn’t stop worrying about him until she gets an answer. However in the book, Mia is mostly concerned about herself. She travels through the hospital following herself around and only makes slight remarks about other characters within the plot. When her family died she was obviously upset but there were only about two sentences focused on the deaths because of how focused on herself she was. Forman does so that people could understand how Mia was very confused as to what was happening to herself, and she wanted to make sure that was clear to
Thus, as I learned, you should attempt to proceed into everything with your best attitude and put no pressure on yourself.

After the game, my family and I went to urgent care and it turned out, I broke my wrist.
