A walk home.
(Not a fainting spell, she says. That's different.)
A heart monitor.
A landline phone hovering over a heart monitor.
A landline phone hovering over a heart monitor sending beats to a technician.
A patient 85 year old.
A storm rolls in.
The carport clamors like a ribcage.
A heart murmur?
A heart "event" as the manual calls it.
A summer storm and an ice tea calm her down.
A heart monitor strapped to her breast.
