"So today was weird. We got up super early so we could take Dad to the Dodger Stadium so he could start the Marathon. He ran and ran and ran and it was super hot. He got to mile number twenty and then he got really dizzy and so he went to a medical tent and layed down on a little bed that had plastic wrap on it. Me and mom got there and then the fireman said we all had to go with dad in a ambulance. I was worried about Dad a lot. The siren was really loud. I sat in a seat in the back that had its own seatbelt. When we got to the hospital, the paramedic told me to "DC." That means to "disconnect" your seatbelt in paramedic-talk. So, I DCd and then we all went in the hospital emergency part.
"We went in a little room and Dad got connected to wires and stuff. The doctor said that Dad was un-hydrated and there was a kidney thing and that Dad would be okay. I got super hungry so me and mom went to the hospital cafeterium and got a ham and cheese sandwich and a yogurt and sun chips. Mom had coffee. The yogurt was a strawberry one. We went back in Dad's room and waited a long time. Mom had crayons in her purse, and Fig Newtons, and crayons, and chocolate kisses, and a Christmas book so we did some stuff. Then Mom and I got to ride in a taxi cab back to where the car was and then we drove back to the hospital and then the doctor said that Dad could go home. We're taking him to his doctor for a check-in tomorrow but that other doctor was right. Dad's going to be okay. And that sandwich was pretty good. I fell asleep in the car on the way home."
