The Young Woman in a Hospital Gown

--by evonnelandwehr, posted Jun 18, 2021
Hurrying home between appointments at work, I was shocked to see a young woman wearing only a hospital gown struggling up the street away from the hospital. She was barefoot and holding the gown closed in the front with both hands. Her feet were obviously hurting.

I drove by slowly to see if there was a car waiting anywhere near. When I realized she was completely alone, I turned around and came back to offer assistance. It was such an unusual sight that I almost didn't believe what I was seeing.

I suggested I take her back to the hospital, but she was determined to walk all the way to her mother's house about 10 miles away. I encouraged her to get in the car, and I drove her to her mother's home. She was grateful.
