I had to hastily throw together and photograph today’s comic, because I really did go to Emergency! I wasn’t going to let a hospital visit stop me from posting a cartoon – I wrote this while sitting in the waiting room.

(Don’t worry, I’m fine. I woke up with a pain in my stomach, went straight to the hospital, got a barrage of tests, and it turned out to be something nicely non-life-threatening. Now I’m back home with a handful of helpful drugs.)

    Yikes. I’m glad you’re OK. How long did you have to wait since hospitals are slammed? :/

    • Doug says:

      Thanks! 🙂 Thankfully, I only had to wait an hour before they started doing bloodwork and stuff. And then there was more waiting for tests and waiting for results and so on. But the hospital staff were great. I expected more pandemic-related chaos!

    SO glad to know you’re okay, Doug!! Cannot do without you. x

    Glad you are ok. My mother told me…”.. never go out with holes in your underwear or you could get in an accident and have to go to the hospital.”

    Get Well Soon!
    I really don’t like recycled cartoons, I have standards, I need new stuff, fancy stuff, Chicken flavored stuff; but mostly your stuff…

    Thanks for all you do Sir

    Glad you’re OK. That happened to me a few years ago…thought it was a heart attack but it was GERD causing esophageal spasms. Take care.

    Dear Doug,

    I’m glad you’re okay! My brother went to hospital with stones in his gall bladder, so I understand how worried you might’ve been going to the ER.

    Take care of yourself and get better soon. 🙂

    Cripes, don’t scare us like that! Glad you’re (mostly) ok!

  9. Rusty says:

    Glad it was nothing serious, Doug. My first question would be more basic- “am I even wearing underwear?” 😀

  10. Bill Dodd says:

    I agree with all: I’m glad you are OK. In the present circumstance, I panic when ANYTHING seems out of order. Then I take a nap.

    So glad you are alright and that is just like you to take an emergency and find the humor in it. Please take it easy and rest. Your cartoons have been a bright spot in this very rough year. Thanks for helping us laugh no matter what is going on. Wishing you a wonderful Holiday and a bright 2021!

    Glad you’re ok Doug! It must be a relief knowing it’s nothing serious. Wondering what a pain/ailment could be is torturous.

    Glad you’re getting care – but most importantly, glad that the flow of comics is uninterrupted :p
