The waiting room is a VERY LARGE area. Besides the dental office, this complex has pediatric & internal medicine doctors, on site mammography services and a pharmacy...and everyone waits in the same waiting room.
The waiting room is divided by a wall, that just reached the mid back of my chair...one side of the wall is for sick people and the other side is the "Well Patient Waiting Room." But...I don't think that the germs and virus' can read the signs...telling them to remain on the sick side. They probably feel well themselves doing what they do best...making people sick.
I'm sitting, of course, in the well patient area because I am just here with Brian, and I'm surrounded by 5 sick children...whose parents apparently don't want their sick kids getting any sicker, by sitting in the "Sick Patient Waiting Room" area.
It really doesn't seem to matter anyway, since there are really no dividers, between the sick and the healthy, other than the short walls...And we are all sharing the same air-space anyway.
As I sit there I'm thinking that maybe I should wait for my son outside or in the car...but I decide to take my chances and sit it out...so I keep writing.
