“This Elevator is for Patients Only”

This just *totally* made my day.

I’m getting a minor thing done at the Cedars procedure center, and I got into the elevator. The woman sitting on a chair operating the elevator said, “this elevator is for patients only”.

At first, I was a little stunned, and started to say, “I am a patient here”, and then I was hit with the magic of the moment–here I am, in street clothes, looking COMPLETELY healthy, so it didn’t even dawn on this woman that I was in fact a patient here.

She started to backtrack a little, but I immediately bowed out of the elevator, enjoying the irony of this moment. The other couple in the elevator, started to joke, ‘she’s with us–our long lost sister’, but I politely waved them aside.

“It’s no problem.” I beamed. “I’ll wait for another one.”

I am in a period where I’m feeling better than I have in a long time (the SubQ Ig is amazing), but I still have a lot of aches and pains, and I *definitely* cloak myself around the identity ‘patient’.

It was a nice feeling to be normal here at the hospital–even if only for a moment. 🙂

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
