“I understand,” says Sid when Marvelous mentions Don’s reluctance to leave the house. “Like I said, it’s no trouble for me to make a house call. I’d like to bring one of my associates along as well - he’s a catperson, too, and a lot of the patients find it reassuring to have another catperson in the room with them for their examinations. As long as neither of you have any objections, that is.” He wouldn’t want to bring Joe along if there was some reason why his presence would make Don
uncomfortable, after all, though he doesn’t think that’s really going to be an issue.
“We should be there in about fifteen minutes, give or take.” Sid puts the paper he’d been writing on in his pocket and takes the key to the ambulance out of his desk drawer. “Just try to keep Don calm and relaxed until we get there.”
He hangs up the phone and looks back at Joe. “It’s an ankle injury,” he says, knowing that Joe has already caught the gist of the situation, just not the specifics. “From the sound of it, I think it’s probably a sprain, but I’ll have to examine it to be sure.” He gets up to grab his coat from the coat rack by his office door. “And it sounds like the patient is nervous about being around unfamiliar people, so once we’re there, I’d like for you to approach him first and help him relax.”
Sid slips on his coat and leads the way out of the clinic to the garage where they keep the ambulance. They haven’t had a house call in a couple of weeks, and Logan had just done the supply check on Sunday, so everything they need should already be in it. He climbs into the driver’s side and shuts the door, waiting for Joe to get in on the opposite side before he starts the engine.
