    Default Feelin' Funky. Had A Guest Die.

    It's been a long couple of days. I had a guest, 46, die while he was staying here at the motel I work at. He passed away at the hospital and it's sort of a freak thing.
    He was killed by a virus because , as it turns out, he was born without a spleen to fight off infection. He'd flown in for a conference and now he's going home bulk freight. He called me Sunday morning begging me for asprin. I figured the guy had been out partying and had a hangover (this is common on the morning shift). I don't normally provide medication for guests due to liability but this huy sounded pathetic so I went to the gas station and bought a two-pack for him and ran it up to his room. The other reason I did this was I wanted to look into his room to see if there were empty bottles or drug parphenalia. The guy came to the door and he looked sick as a dog, I offered to call him an ambulance but he declined. He would decline three more similar offers for help that day. The infection raveged his body and by the time the ambulance did come he couldn't feel his arms or legs, the EMTs couldn't find a pulse even though he was talking with him.

    It's been weird and sad for me to think that while I was enjoying the Super Bowl that two floors above me a man lay dying.

    We did everything that we could, had he taken me up on the ambulance that morning he'd still be here.

    Wow that has to be tough. I was just talking with Susan about things like that, where you may have had a chance to save a life if things had gone just a little different. Hindsight is funny like that. You just can't beat yourself up over things like that. Hang in there bud!

    I'm good.

    It's just wierd to be part of something like this. I feel worse for his friend who was in the next room. He's now escorting the ashes home. It's a good leson about how when it's your time to go, death will find you.

    On the flip side, I've got the making for a great story.
