Love Is The Best Medicine
Dr. Amelia Harper has just arrived at the Tampa Bay Children's Hospital for another day of work. Amelia loved working with children and she hoped that someday she would find the right man to marry and have a family with. Amelia walked to her office and picked up her schedule for the day while her staff went about their daily routines.
"Amanda, I need you to get me the patient charts for today." Amelia stated.
"Sure thing, Doctor." Amanda responded.
"Patti, can you make sure the rooms are ready for the patients. I want to make sure we stay on schedule today." Amelia stated.
"Already taken care of, Dr. Amelia." Patti responded.
"Carrie and Naomi, I hope you are both ready to triage the patients." Amelia stated.
"We sure are." Carrie answered.
"Alright, let's get the day started." Amelia responded.
Over the course of the morning, Amelia saw her patients and wrote scripts for those who needed them. As the lunch hour approached, Amelia kicked off her shoes and ate her lunch while she went over the charts for the afternoon patients.
The afternoon seemed go by just as quickly as the morning and as Amelia was wrapping up her last patient of the day, and wrote out a script for more asthma meds, Amanda was finishing up her tasks at the desk. It was a few minutes to five, when a tall, muscular man walked through the door with his daughter.
"Can I help you, sir?" Amanda asked.
"My daughter needs to be seen, please." He answered.
"Okay. Has she been seen here before?" Amanda asked.
"No." he answered.
"Okay. Fill out this forms and I will be right back." Amanda stated.
Amanda handed him the forms and headed back to the doctor's office. Amelia was finishing up making notes in the patients chart when Amanda walked into her office. Amelia closed the chart and looked up. She saw the look on Amanda's face and she knew that she had one more patient to go.
"New patient. She looks about 2 months old. Her dad brought her in. He's filling out papers now." Amanda told her.
"Thank you. Put them in room 1." Amelia stated.
Amanda headed back to the front desk and took the forms from the man. After putting the info in the computer, Amanda showed them into room one. Amanda let Amelia know that they were waiting for her. Amelia cleaned off her stethoscope and walked down the hallway.
"Hello. I'm Dr. Amelia Harper, what brings you in today?" Amelia asked when she walked in the door.
"My daughter is running a fever and she won't eat." He answered.
"Ok. How old is she?" Amelia asked.
"6 weeks." He answered.
"Ok. Let me take a look at her and see if we can figure out what's going on." Amelia responded as she picked up the baby girl. "What's her name?"
"Isabella." He answered.
Amelia looked over Isabella and it was determined that the infant was running a fever and was dehydrated. Amelia picked up her in room phone and called the front desk. Amanda answered and took the orders from Amelia.
"Mr. uh, what is your name?" Amelia asked.
"Cena." He answered. "My name is John Cena."
"Well, Mr. Cena, your daughter is running a fever and is dehydrated. I think it would be best to admit her to the hospital so she can get some fluids and antibiotics." Amelia told him.
"Ok." John responded.
"I will walk over with you since you are my last patient. Will your wife be joining us?" Amelia asked.
"I'm not married." John answered.
"Where is the mother?" Amelia asked.
"Good question. Look, I didn't even know I had a daughter until 3 hours ago when her mother dropped her off. Cassandra, apparently didn't want her." John answered.
"Okay. Let's head over to the hospital and get things started." Amelia responded.
Amelia walked John and Isabella over to the hospital and got her admitted right away. Amelia stayed while the nurses got an IV and medication started. Amelia looked over at John and saw how visibly shaken he was.
"Mr. Cena, she will be ok. I know this is a lot to take in, but we can set you up in a room with a bed so you can stay with her." Amelia stated.
"Thank you." John responded.
"You're welcome." Amelia stated.
Once the room was set up and John and Isabella were settled in, Amelia signed off on the chart and headed back to her office to gather her things before heading home. Amelia drove home and after pulling into the drive way and walking into the house, the only thing she could think about was Isabella and how a mother could just abandon her baby.
