Infirmary Next Day

Xanadu Weyr - Infirmary

The infirmary here is intended for human care. It is spotless and smells of disinfectant, cots are lined up against one wall, a curtain can be pulled to give some privacy to the occupants of the cots if they so desire. A cabinet stands off against another wall, instruments and medications stored against when they will be needed. A couple of curtained off beds are used for examinations of patients and the treatment of minor injuries which won't require long term care. A desk with chair is just off of the doorway for the healer to sit and catch up on record keeping after a long days work.

Shellie is examining Senkyou's foot at last, and has just let her have the bad news that it's badly broken, and that she's grounded. D'had is sitting next to Senkyou. And an ominous bleating is coming from Shellie's office

Senkyou nods to D'had, her eyes bulging and she says "Are yu sure? Can't yu get a second opinion.. or do something that'll get me back out, say in a sevenday?" She takes the offered hand but holds it loosely. "I lived a stint in Ierne, nice place.. Xanadu's better though." At shellies words she sighs, letting her eyes glaze, "Darn ovine, Dulacth has my permission to eat it." The beating of the ram makes her shift in her seat, taking out her belt knife. "You have no idea, that thing was running around here, battering into things. Someone needs to get it to a dragon maw.. I got a willing dragon."

Shellie shakes her head. "I'm sorry, Senkyou, but as it is, you're lucky I'm not going to have to go in and pin the bones back together." She's examining Senkyou's foot. D'had sits next to Senkyou, waiting his turn, while Thea still dozes on the cot. As for other occupants, there's a low, ominous bleating coming from the office…

Thea's slumber ends as ice-green eyes flutter open and rove uncertainly about the Infirmary. For a moment she is still, then a huge yawn stretches her jaws. She turns her head towards the sound of voices nearby. For a moment her gaze is unfocused. A hand limply flops as she moves her arm, which is still under the impression that the long snooze is still in progress. "Wazzzz am uhnn in heeere flllorrr." She licks her lips and tries again, clearing her throat and asking the two Shellies she's trying masterfully (and failing) to focus into one person, "What am I in here for?" She frowns absently as the sound of sheep bleating floats into her muzzy brain.

D'had chuckles, giving Senkyou's hand a light squeeze. "Well if ya got that much to do I'd take being grounded as a sign its time to take a break," he comments finding the brighter side of the situation. "What's the whole thing with these ovines anyway? Heard a bit but.." Well he's more interested in chasing skirts than hanging around to hear the latest gossip, especially when it's about wholly creatures. "Sure there's nothing that can make it sooner for her?" he questions Shellie, a whole month does seem like a long time.

Senkyou sighs, muttering orders under her breath. "Already took a break, had a baby. I only get one a turn, and Zoniya took it for me." Pulling her foot away at the talk of surgery, "NO, we ain't cuttin' on me none.. not doin' any pinning or nothin' I'll do my time, just set them so I can go see my wingsecond." Thea is looked at, and Senkyou chuckles, "I think, if I
remember it right you got yourself tranqed, but then I didn't stick around for much more after that. Sleep well?"

Shellie nods, and sighs, then stands up, and goes over to get a kit for a cast. "I'll set what I can, but you may have a bit of a permanant limp."

Thea turns on her side. Well, she flops more like a beached fish. But her senses are slowly returning. Slowly enough that she misses the entirety of Senkyou's comments. "I got…myself… tranked?" Her brow wrinkles, "I don't know how to give injections. At least I think I don't. And yes, the best sleep I've ever had." Then, "You're….having a baby?" She's unfocused enough to miss that Shelli mentions the brownrider has broken her foot, "Pregnancy shouldn't make folks limp…" She eyes Senkyou's belly thoughtfully. Both of them.

D'had ahhs, nodding slowly at Senkyou's reply. "Well take another?" he half questions his own response. "Doubt anyone's going to make you work too hard on a broken foot." Of course that's just his opinion before Thea's grabbing his attention with her incoherentness, well that and the information given by the other two ladies. "Tranked?"

Senkyou shakes her head, "Well I ain't gonna limp, I'll figure out a way around that.. lookin' weak ain't gonna do me no good with the young smart mouths." She snorts with Thea's assumption, "I sure as shards better not be pregnant, I just had a baby this turn." Shiftin to look at D'had she says "Well Shellie was tryin' to stab the sheep, managed to get Thea right in the backside."

Shellie nods, a crestfallen look on her face. "I'm sorry Thea. I didn't mean to get you, but with moving targets… " She sighs, and busies herself examining Senkyou's foot, trying to figure out the best way to set the mess of bones.

Thea blinks slow eyelids that seem to want to remain closed. They compromise by remaining half-lidded - that was some good stuff Shellie used, to be sure. She hears D'had, but her eyes look somewhere beside the Rider. Puzzlement colors her voice as she addresses the man, "You want another broken foot?" This makes no sense to her, but as the haze seems
to lift, she adds to herself, "No, of course you don't want another." Shellie explains and Thea shifts her attention to her and she repeats dumbly, "You got me. You got me?" The light goes on, "You got -me-!!!" At this point Senkyou's explanation sinks in. As a summer storm gathering on the horizon, Thea's brow clouds. This doesn't bode well for the ovine still lurking in Shellie's office. But the lassitude lingers and the goldie sighs and drifts into a half-awake/half asleep state as she falls silent once more.
