I have been reading all the comments to Elsa. They have been the only elixir for her constant retching.
This and Mary. She is Elsa's roommate's nurse but she took the time to sit and talk to Elsa, flush her NG tube and show some interest about Elsa's condition. She even commented on Elsa's gown and now has managed to spend more time with Elsa, in the last twenty minutes, then Elsa's supposed nurse has spent in the last eight hours. Encroyable! The thing is,
I think this is mostly due to the fact that she is totally inept. She has learned the moves a nurse makes, but not how to be a nurse.
In any case, Elsa felt better after talking to her and I am carping so I'll stop here.
