She was oriented to time and place and obeyed instructions to grip Penny’s hands and pushed with the balls of both her feet against Penny’s palms. The strength in all four of her extremities seemed equal, but Mrs. Spoonhouse couldn’t keep her eyes open long ..."

Chapter 12: Chapter Twelve
"...The ER physician said, “We don’t know what drugs this guy took. He was unresponsive with an irregular heart rate and shallow respirations–-he stopped breathing for a short period—so I want to get him up there while he’s stable before something else happens.
