20:15

Roll off the ramp with crew of three.

20:29

Arrive at hospital.

20:48

Load patient (my brother) and depart hospital, en route to bigger, better hospital.

22:45

Unload patient at ED of bigger, better hospital. We got him settled into his new room and gave him a pep talk and went on our way.

01:05

Back at the station.

Update on our patient:

He is resting comfortably waiting for the surgeon to insert a drainage tube into his abdomen. His belly is full of fluids, resulting in his small intestine being very inflamed and irritated and he has a lot of pain. I talked to my brother this morning and he’s hoping to come home today, though I think they will probably have him stay there at least one more night. I’m headed over there in just a little bit to see him.
