I stood right there

I was in the hospital recently, to visit a friend.  She had been put in the hospital because she had pneumonia.  I was absolutely uneasy about her because I had recently been to visit her.  When I arrived, she was cocooned in blankets from chin to toe. She told myself and others she was so frigid so was shivering.  I thought the room was quite comfortable plus I was uneasy that she was still running a temperature. Fifteen minutes later, she threw the blankets off while complaining that it was now too warm.  I had recently taken my coat off, plus I didn’t notice a big difference, although I did notice that I was now deliciously warm. I moved over by the window, where her bed was, plus I could recognize the heat of the sunshine coming through the window.  I could recognize the heat coming off the heater. It was so warm plus dry that it made my eyes water. Now I could understand why it was so warm for her. Two minutes later, the oil furnace turned off plus there was a cool air that was coming from the heater.  You could recognize the Winter season frigid coming off the windows. I immediately lowered the blinds plus closed the curtains. My friend wanted to see the outside, however the frigid coming from the oil furnace plus off the windows, was outrageous. Two minutes later, the oil furnace turned back on, only to make the room too warm again.  She told myself and others that there had been a concern with the oil furnace since she came. Even though she had said something to the nurses, so far, nothing had been done to rectify the oil furnace problem.
