The Hospital: Day Two

Tuesday, June 29th, 4:30 pm:

It was Tuesday around noon when I got to talk to Daniel. I made sure to memorize his phone number. I was talking on Rosita´s phone, and a doctor arrived at the door with an entourage of nurses. He demanded (by shouting into the room from the door ENG) to get off the phone! I kept talking while looking at him, I think I said something about getting off to Daniel, but I was astounded at the doctor’s behavior. He kept yelling to get off the phone, or he would have to intubate me! I asked, are you threatening me? He said my oxygen levels were deficient, so I could not be talking on the phone! Now, think back to what I already wrote — I was surrounded by people talking on their phones whenever they wanted, and some were in worse condition than I was! This incident added to my misgivings about the hospital. I had never been treated this way.

I told Daniel that I wanted to get out of this hospital and go to CIMA — that this place was strange.

I spent the day sleeping and sometimes talking with the other patients. Joseph was not recovering, and they transferred him out. Another man (I will call him Zappo because he looked like a frog) was admitted. This man constantly talked, like he was on speed. I could not understand much of what he said, but he just kept talking and talking to everyone. I noticed he did not wear a mask, and he was not connected to oxygen. He walked freely around the room. He appeared not to be sick. I never heard him cough. I immediately felt a distrust of him. I openly asked him what he was doing here since he appeared not to be sick. He did not answer.

In the evening, the nurses turned on the large T.V. Zappo wanted to watch the news and violent novellas all night. I tried to sleep because he had kept talking all evening also. They had given him the remote. So, about 10:00 pm — the nurses had turned off the room lights, and most everyone else was asleep — I asked Zappo to turn off the T.V. He said no. So, I began to take my finger pulse monitor on and off so that the alarm would get a nurse to come into the room. This Zappo guy walked over to my bed and said I should stop doing that, or they will think we are having sex! Now, I knew he was strange, and I became a bit afraid. I was weak and really could not get out of bed. I knew I had to talk to the doctors about this situation. How was I going to recover when I could not get good rest? Why would they have a man who was not sick walking around the room? How could they have a T.V. on all night in a room of COVID patients? Nothing was making sense.

On this night, when the nurses finally did come in and turn off the T.V., I ¨glitched¨ again and fell into the next subscription titled the No.No. House. In this scenario, you chose your weapon and the house’s configuration, and you had to evade some soldiers and try to kill them in return. I just wanted to sleep, but instead, I woke myself up. I saw that everyone was asleep except me. I noticed that the monitors for beds no.98 and no.99 were working overtime, making beeps and clicks, and the lights on top were flickering in tandem with Tina’s monitor next to me. She was making moans and noises like she was having sex. Again, I was like — what the hell is this? It seemed that the other monitors were doing things to Tina through her monitor.

I fell asleep and, in the morning, awoke in a complete sweat again.

Sequence Detail: Patient Monitors

8:00 pm Nurses dispense night medicine. Patients begin to get sleepy. 8:30 pm: Patient Monitor №100 begins a melodic relaxing chiming with the light at top flickering in tandem. Everyone drifts off to sleep.

After approximately 20 minutes, a countdown chime starts for about 30 minutes. Then there are answering beeps and clicks with the Patient Monitors №98 and 99. My impression is that they were communicating with each other and are linking up. The monitors all link up with Patient Monitor №95, and after a few minutes, the patient in that bed responds with moaning and groaning. The patients in beds №98, №99, and №97 begin making grunts, groans, and mumbling yes, nice — all very sexual. №96 — my bed is not communicating with the other monitors with beeps and clicks (because I am awake?); however, when I take off the finger pulse monitor and unattached myself, it disrupts the link between all of the monitors. I discover this days later. There is also another particular aspect of the patient monitors. When the sequence is over, they make beeps that sound like words. At first, I thought they sounded like ¨You Cannot Save Us. ¨ But, by the second night, I was sure the words were ¨You Cannot Stop Us. ¨ ¨No, You Can’t¨. The sequence repeats itself eight times during the night — each sequence lasting about an hour. It all stops by 4:30 am (8 hours later) when the morning nurses clean the patients and their beds to begin the day.

I will explain that I knew when I was asleep and seeing things in some sort of program and when I was awake and seeing things in reality. I could tell the difference. What I saw when I woke up was real, and I tested it by talking the next day with Leo and Rosita. They both complained about the constant chiming of the monitors for no apparent reason. Neither one remembered anything from when they slept.
