In the tube

–Dad, you don’t have to wait until I’m asleep.
–I’m fine. If it’s just the same to you, I’ll wait here.
–Ok. But you don’t need to hold my hand.

The nurse pushed a few ccs of Propofol and Jordan started to slur her words.

–You can just give me a kiss–

And she was asleep. She will be in the tube for the next two hours. She’s the only one in radiology wearing “monkey pajamas.”
