Continuing from last week, my friends. I decided I disliked leaving you with a cliff hanger to move on to another story so I’ll tidy this story up just a tiny bit.
Last week, when Collin Brody learned that Joyce Campbell may very well live just twenty miles away, he jumped up from the table after drinking wine, fell to the floor after hitting his head on the edge of a chair.
“Mr. Brody, have you been bungee jumping again?”
Collin opened his eyes to find internist, Dr. Marcus Barry smiling down at him and Collin said, “One minute I’m in Nyack having lunch with friends and the next, I’m in a hospital so what happened?”
“Evidently your friends told you something so extraordinary, your blood pressure spiked, you fainted, they called 911 and here we are and my question is did you take your blood pressure meds today? Now you have a concussion, the wound required stitches and I required a sewing machine to close the open wound.”
“Well first I want my best friend Edgar to stay with me so have someone bring a cot in.
“That I’ll do but you must take your meds regularly if you want to live to have a long life with your Joyce. And today, I’ve asked for the best Therapy Dog in Rockland County to visit; Kizzy is his name and he is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure.”
In the corridor, Lieutenant Lawrence O’ Brien told Edgar not to worry, that by tomorrow he had a feeling they would find Joyce Campbell.
