A better thermostat would be awesome

Tis the season for parties, celebrations, and late night events.  It is also the season for irresponsible drivers taking to the roads following those festivities.  This is what brought me to spending the Holidays, stuck in a hospital, praying for my brother to make it through his injuries.  Two weeks before Christmas he was coming home from work and he was hit by a drunk driver. He works second shift so he is on the road around eleven thirty, the driver ran a red light and hit his car dead on.  Of course, as it often is, the other driver only sustained minor injuries. My brother suffered from broken bones, internal injuries, and a nasty concussion. We were all called to the hospital because they really didn’t know if he would make it or not.  Once the shock of the accident wore off and he was at least stabilized I started to notice my surroundings. One of the main things that I noticed was how cold I was. The outside temperatures were only in the twenties and with the waiting room door constantly opening and closing, it made it feel like that inside too.  I couldn’t get warm no matter what I did. As the days past, I would take blankets into my brother’s room so I could tolerate the temperatures in the building. I spent as much time as possible with him so he wouldn’t feel so alone. That Christmas was the worst ever but thankfully he was able to come home and recovered.  The hospital will always be a cold place to me, both physically and emotionally. I hope that people take really think before taking to the roads so that no one else needs to go through those cold, worrisome days like my family did.
