Let's meet our friend Lydia
Updated: Mar 30, 2022
Occupation: Emergency room doctor and surgeon
A lady arrived in Emergency room via ambulance from a car accident. She sustained traumatic injuries and needs emergency surgery. Lydia is working tonight’s shift and the paramedics are working hard to get her stabilized. Lydia recognizes this lady from back home, in Bronx, New York. She is wondering how in the world did she end up in Chicago. That life seems like a lifetime ago, and I hope she doesn’t recognize me.
Lydia asks the nurse, "What’s the patient’s name?" The nurse says, “We don’t know Dr. Sanchez, she didn’t have any identification when she arrived." Lydia says to herself; I know her name, her full name and her entire family’s name, but I can’t let anyone know that I know her. It will raise too many questions and I left that life back in the Bronx.
