Dorthy drives like a crazy woman to get her Ma to the hosptiale.
"Dorthy I think I should have driven. You are a nervous wreck you are in continuted to drive." Blance said nerviously in the back seat as she and Rose untangled themselves from being pushed to get together from the last sharp turn.
"Dorthy it is starting to hurt very bad." Sophia moaned.
Dorthy didn't say anything she turned sharply in the emergency turn off to the hospitale. She stopped the car and leaped out and yelled "HELP MY MA CAN'T STOP FARTING."
The two doctors one a elder and the other an first year resident had a shock look on their faces. The first year resident started laughing.
The elder doctor "Dr. Noah stop that this inistet. That is not proffsional and it is uncalled for."
Doctor Noah stopped laughing suddenly "I'm sorry Dr. Peterson. It won't happen again."
They both rush over to Sophia's side and opened the door.
They both got a good riff of Sophie's lound sweet smelling fart.
"Get a wheelchair Dr. Noah." Dr. Peterson commanded.
Dr. Noah rushed to the nearest wheelchair. He rushed over with it. He helped Dr. Peterson help Sophia out of the car and into the wheelchair.
Dr. Noah took the wheechair in his hands and pushed Sophia to the E.R.'s sliding door with Dr. Peterson right behind him.
Blance took the keys form Dorthy's suddenly lifeless hands and moved to the drivers side.
Rose took Dorthy's hand and they walked into the E.R.
Once in the E.R. the two doctors wheeled Sophia into an room to examin her.
Dorthy walked over to the nurses desk and stared dummly at the nurse.
"Name of patient?" the nurse said in a monotone.
The nurse almost bust out laughing. But she knew her job.
Blance stepped next to Dorthy. "Sophia Pettibonllo."
"Age?" The nurse said.
"82" Blance said.
"Height?" nurse said.
"5'4 1/2" Blance replied.
"Weight?" Nurse asked.
"115" Dorthy said.
"Insuarnce card?" Nurse asked.
Dorthy got out Sophia's insuarnce card and handed the nurse the card.
The nurse wrote down the information and handed the card back.
"Illminent?" Nursed asked.
"Unstoppable farting; pain." Dorthy said worridenly as she stared off into space.
"If you three will take a seat over there the doctor will be with you soon." the nurse said as she pointed to chair's ahead of her.
The three women slowly walked over and sat down.
Dorthy stared off into space as she worried about her mother. *Ma oh Ma. What's happing? This has never happened before.*
"What stinks in here nanna?" a boy of six asked his grandmother as he plugged his norse from the smell of Sophia's fart.
"Just a fart sweety. Please don't speak so loudly, epeciaslly on such an delicate matter. If you have any questions that you know that are going to be embarrassing just whisper in my ear ok." the grandmother said softly looking down at her grandson.
"Ok nanna. I didn't mean to be rude." the boy said in an soft voice but Dorthy still heard him.
"That's all right young man. You are only six after all. What is you name?" Dorthy asked looking kindly at the boy and his grandmother.
"Collins Peter Wentington. And this is my Nanna." Collins said with an smile at Dorthy, Blance and Rose.
Dr. Noah and Dr. Peterson looked briefly at each other over
Sophia's head. They looked instatianly back down at Sophia.
"Mrs. Pettibonea we will have to opearte. We have to get inside you urtiune and see why you are ....." Dr. Peterson began.
".... Farting and bleeding. We must began right away. Dr. Noah please tell the family." Dr. Peterson looked at the nurse and the nurse went to the phone on the wall.
"Yes we will need an gruney and some orderlys." the nurse said before hanging up the phone.
Dr. Noah left the room to tell Dorthy, Blance and Rose.
"Mrs. Pertillo must undergo surgery." Dr. Noah said gravelly to the three anxious women in the waiting room.
"Oh my God will my mother be all right?" Dorthy asked breathlessly cluncing her heart.
Rose put her hand to her mouth shocked and Blance closed her eyes in prayer.
"I must be honest this is the first time that we have had someone come in with this problem...." Dr. Noah said.
"But we know that the only way that we can locate the problem we must opeart on Mrs. Pertillo." Dr. Noah turned his head toward the room just as Sophia let out another fart.
"I must get back in there and help Dr. Perterson." Dr. Noah said as he turned and walked quickly back to the room leaving the three women very shocked and scared.
After putting Sophia to sleep Dr. Peterson started to cut her open with Dr. Noah handing him his surgecy tools. As soon as Dr. Peterson cut open Sophia's bladder the loundest fart whisted out causing the walls and door to shake.
"MA!" Dorthy cried out as she saw the door and wall shake from her mother's room.
"She's all right. The doctors are just getting the gas out of her is all." Blance said as she took her best friend's hand in hers and shook it slightly.
Rose looked first at the wall and door and than back at Dorthy and gently took her best friends other hand into her hand and softly stroke the hand.
Dorthy unknowing gripped her two best friends hands so hard that the two women felt like their hands were breaking.
"Almost done Dr. Peterson?" The nurse asked as she watched Dr. Peterson start to stich up Sophia's bladder.
"Yes." Dr. Peterson commented as he conctered on getting the stictes in an neat roll.
Dr. Noah handed Dr. Peterson the banges and together with the help of nurse they wrapped Sophia up.
"Go tell the family." Dr. Peterson said as he took his mask off.
The nurse went to the door.
The three women stood up together still holding hands when the door opened and out walked the nurse.
"You may go in there now. Your mother won't wake up for sevearl hours yet." The nurse said to Dorthy.
Dorthy brought her hands along with Rose and Blance's to her chest and she closed her eyes and said "Thank you God." Still holding her best friends hands she walked into her mother's room.
