Friday Morning Excitement

 

I was waiting patiently in the waiting room at my eye doctor's office for my 9:00 AM appointment when suddenly the fire alarm sounded with its usual ear-piercing scream.  Everyone in the office exited the building to stand outside and after a short time, the fire department arrived.

My doctor is located at an eye clinic where eye surgeries are performed.  While I was standing outside, I wondered what might have been happening in the surgery center.  It wasn't until I looked at these photos and cropped down to the people standing outside that I realized there was a patient there surrounded by doctors and nurses.  I am certainly glad that didn't happen when I had my eye surgery.  As far as I know, there was nothing serious wrong.  I never did hear how the alarm was set off but the firemen reset everything and we were once again inside.  Lot's of excitement for a Friday morning.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns.  I'm continuing my stroll through the V & A.

So far I have not had a experience with my eye surgeries like this one. It looks like the patient is in good hands.

A fair bit of the time it's a false alarm or someone yanks one of those activation stations.

Yikes! That poor patient!

That would be my luck to have the alarm going off while I was having surgery.

Adds to the stress when this happens while at the doctor's office.

Gosh I wonder what it was, maybe a false alarm.
