Driving alone, lightheaded, really lightheaded, loses consciousness, regains consciousness, wakes to find the car's still on the road with others honking, remarkably manages to drive to ER. "...otherwise I might have died." BP low, EKG done:
Meds given. Patient and doctors' pulses improve. EKG repeated:
Feelin' cool, until:
"Why, doctor, why?"
Lots of 'em.
Back to back.
"Therapy" given. Patient does well, until:
"What do you mean I can't drive? I have to work!"
How do I explain when I can't explain why? Logic, science, and genetics seem so cold right now. The family must know. More lives upended. "What do you mean?" Explanations. Questions. More explanations. Mother: "It was probably me."
... but cool.
