Breaking Into The Hospital

Halloween this year was a different story then most. There was so much going on this year and my sister needed help with her kids. One had dance in one town, while one was doing football in another town,  while the youngest needed to be picked up from afterschool club. It was raining cats and dogs and everyone wanted to go trick or treating.  And finally to make things even more complicated our dad had surgery that morning and was in the hospital. 

I helped my sister out by driving to the neighboring town and picking up my youngest niece, who funny enough was dressed in scrubs and said she was a nurse.  Where as I had dressed in scrubs for Halloweeen to and was telling everyone I was a brain Surgeon (hey go big or go home) After picking her up I took her to my house, giving her space to do her homework, fed  her dinner, then we braved the rain to go trick or treating. By the time all of that was done it was already 8pm.  It was then that I was able to finally go to the hospital to see my pops. 

When we got to the hospitals the doors were locked and no one there, it was as if someone just shut it down for the night. Just when we were getting ready to leave a security guard showed up and I asked him, 

“Is there anyway to get into the hospital?”

“Maybe if you go around the back to the emergency room. You could probably get in through there” he responded. 

We were still dressed in our scrubs so I think he thought we worked there as he never once mentioned what the sign said, that visiting hours were over.  My niece and I drove around back and walked up to the ER doors.  I had a small feeling that noone was going to let me in to see my dad since it was obvious visiting hours were over but it couldn’t hurt to ask, or not ask….   Just as we entered the lobby to the emergency room the internal doors to the back flew open and two guys pushing an empty gurney came running out.  I didn’t stop at the front desk.  I Didn’t even acknowledge anyone else, I just walked right through those double doors and into the back of the ER.  

Just after I walked into the back I surveyed my surroundings. My Niece stood frozen in the lobby on the outer side of the now closing doors, “auntie! AUNTIE!!” She was freaking out because she is our rule keeper. (She never does anything wrong. She is always quick to tell anyone when they are doing something wrong.) I turned to her and mouthed “ssshhhhhhh!!!” And motioned for her to get her ass over to me.  I think the only reason she even budged was because she was so scared she didn’t want to be left without me rather than breaking the rules with me. The ER was just a big room with a desk in the center and lots of mini rooms made up of hanging curtains as patient areas.  I saw a few people look at my Neice and I and then look away. I quickly started walking around trying to find a way into the main hospital. When suddenly a doctor came through two doors that read “Authorized personal only”. But, honestly I didn’t care because I saw the king hospital hall just behind him.  I quickly waked through the same doors and heard my petrified Neice again, “auntie!!!”  She was frozen in the ER. 

“Do you really want to stay in there?” Which made her jump.  We quickly walked the halls of the deserted hospital looking for the elevator to the second floor. My Neice finally musters up the courage to speak to me. “Auntie what are we doing? We are not supposed to be here!” Just then a man in scrubs pushing a wheelchair walked by us.  I waited to him to pass before I responded. 

“Sweetie I know that; but, I think because we are both dressed in scrubs they aren’t paying attention to us.”  

Just then I found an elevator but again it said “authorized personnel only” over it.  However, right then the doors to the elevator opened and I took it as a sign that the universe was guiding us.  All doors just kept opening for us. I quickly walked into the elevator and tuned to find my Neice frozen in the hallway still,”AUNTIE!! You can’t go on that!” She said in a panicked whisper.  

“Girl! Get your butt in here!” I said irritated, we were so close to seeing my dad. Again the doors started to close and she ran on to th lift. “What on earth are you so scared of?  It’s not like we would get arrested. We would simply be asked to leave. Honestly, I think they think we work here”.  Just then the doors opened and we were finally on the second floor. We were able to follow the room signs and quickly found pops watching TV in the bed of his hospital room.  “Hey!” He almost yelled as he was very high on pain killers. “This is a wonderful surprise! I didn’t think anyone else was coming!” We each gave him hugs and I told him how we had to break in to the hospital to see him.  He laughed so hard and then tuned to his granddaughter and said “what did you think would happen? Did you think you would be arrested or something?” As he was still laughing. I could see she was really mad at first but I think just seeing him get such a kick out of our story made her mood change and soften. 

I took my Neice home around nine and was finally able to go home myself. Dads back at home recovering from his surgery.  My Neice is still speaking to me and my sister  hasn’t said a word about it.  So, I’m hoping all is well in LoLa-Land again
