(1) My friend was at work.
His wife had an unexpected medical problem at home.
Their daughter [who lived separately] has an appointment with the mother. She called the ambulance. There was an emergency operation for bypass.
(2) They had come back from an enjoyable but tiring trip down South.
The wife had an unexpected medical problem while trying to fill the pond at the back of the house.
She had some memory loss. She could not recall her name , the dates and time. The maternal instinct kicked in. She asked, “Where are my sons?”
(3) He accompanied his spouse for a medical check up.
He was asked to do medical checkup. The doctors would not let him go back.
He had a successful bypass operation.
(4) He performs exercise regularly and has annual check ups.
He was asked to check up his heart. His coronaries were about 70% blocked.
The health care system covered the majority of his expenses. Even after taking the “private hospital” option, the out-of-pocket costs were reasonable. He had a successful bypass operation.
