Lost son

Last night when we went to visit my father-in-law, who is a surgical patient at Memorial Hospital, I lost my foster son. That sounds serious but was really hilarious to me. Pat went on ahead to the room while Shaun and I took my dog Lucky outside to park. Lucky did his business and we came back into the hospital. When we reached the elevator, I told Shaun to push the up button. The elevator soon came and I got on and said, "push the button for the eighth floor."

At the next stop, a man on the elevator told me that it was the eighth floor. I got off and walked to the lounge area and stopped. I turned and said, "Shaun, you wait here." I heard no response, so I called out, "Shaun." Again, there was no response. Several ladies standing in the area asked whether they could help me. I asked, "Wasn't there a young boy with me when I got off the elevator?"

They answered, "No." I turned to them and chuckled nervously, "My wife is going to kill me. I think I lost our son." I hadn't told him the floor or room number we were going to. I returned to the elevator and called out, "Shaun," each time the door opened. And each time people passed without commenting. After several minutes, I got on the elevator and returned to the fifth floor where I had started. The door opened and I called, "Shaun."

He answered immediately. "What do you want?" In a voice both irritated and relieved, I said, "Get over here." Once on the elevator, I asked, "Why didn't you follow me?" He answered timidly, "You told me that I would have to stay in the waiting area when we got to the hospital."

He was right. We had told him that since he had a cold, he couldn't go to grandpa's room for fear of making him sick. Shaun had seen the waiting area just inside the fifth floor doors and stayed there when I got on the elevator. When I finally arrived in the room and told Pat the story, she chuckled too, especially when I told her about telling the ladies that she would kill me for losing our son.

She then stopped laughing and said seriously, "Well, at least you had that part right."
