The Dawg and I were both in his room when we started hearing a strange noise, which is not terribly unusual in the hospital. Something's always beeping. Maybe his IV monitor; maybe one down the hall. There are all kinds of sounds.
But this one was different. After the loud noise sounded a few times, we heard an announcement over a speaker system -- except that we couldn't understand it. I thought I heard something about behind the administration office. We heard scurrying in the hallway.
Now, here we are on 3rd floor - and he's hooked up to machines and such. (And him wearing what he calls "this dress" that's open down the back.)
The lady at the door said it was indeed a fire alarm, and then she started shutting the door. I asked what we were supposed to do.
She said to just wait. No one smelled any smoke. If there was anything to it, they would keep him (The Dawg) safe.
A short while later, someone else came and opened the door and said everything was okay.
Oh, well, so much for excitement in the hospital!
