Pappa Doc's picture

A trooper escourt the bewildered woman called “Sho” to the medical exam room where Pappa Doc was waiting with another ACU clad woman that was holding a metal tray.

“ Specialist Davis, This is Ms Sho... I’ll need you to stand by as my rider. “ Pappa explained to the trooper.

“ Yes Chief. “ Specialist Davis replied as she placed the metal tray down on the desktop. “Will she be needing a full medical work up as well, Chief?. “

“ I don’t know if she plans on staying so I’ll just say no for right now. “ Pappa spoke is a softer tone then his “authoritative” tone that he would use to get people to “snap to”.

Pappa’s hand waved at Ms Sho to enter a small white 10 x 12 ft room that was like a exam room. “After you young lady” as he waiting for her to sit down on the Gynecologist table. “ Make yourself comfortable and I’ll be with you in a few minutes.” Pappa Doc said with a smile as he reached for the folders on the door as she passed him to get into the room.

*Inner Thoughts of Sho:
OK OK As long as I don’t see any needles I’ll be fine. No shots today.
*Phew*
Ok let’s get this over with. Also... Did Pappa mention he was a doctor... I just assumed it was a nickname... He does seem very proffesional though and has very kind eyes. I don’t think I would mind working with him... I wonder what Stacey and Andy are going to do.
* end inner thoughts*

Pappa Doc returns with a soft knock at the door. “ Hello I’m Chief Warrant Officer Hawk aka "Pappa Doc" with 1st S.F. Divison 11th Group, I currently serve in the role as the medical officer of this base as well as Current Commanding Officer. I would like to take the time to welcome you to FOB - Iron horse and see that you passed quarrantine with flying colors. The last step is your exam then full access to the base facilities.

“It’s nice to finally meet you Pappa Doc. I’ve been looking forward to putting a face to the name for a while now and it’s refreshing to finally be able to” Ms Sho replied.

“So what besides zombies brings you here to this wonderful little hell hole called “Ironhorse”? he asks as he continued to scan through sheets while waiting for Special Davis to knock and come in.

“Looking to start over... Sort of like a clean slate. I thought I might be able to get it here better then any where else.” the woman explained

**knock at the door then Sp4 Davis comes in without speaking and sits next to the chief

“ This is SP4 Davis and she will be my rider as I examine you, is that ok?” Pappa Doc asks as his eye make contact with sho.

Sho Nods acknowledging towards Davis and replies Nice to meet you.

“ your a brave woman for flying and helping with a strangers wounds.” he commented as he wait for her to change behind the standing blinds.

“I was more worried about Stacey. If Andy didn’t pull through, She would have been all alone with attempted murders near by. I just wanted to make sure she was safe, but when I finally got there...I don’t know something just clicked and a voice in my head told me you need to do A, B, and C... But I’m glad i could be helpful.” Sho talked a mile a minute as she addressed him from behind the screen.

“ You made my job alot easier for surgery as well... have you considered working as a medic or something?” Pappa Doc asks

“Truthfully I’ve never had any formal training as a medic, I do have some schooling in Psychiatry, but that’s it. But I am very willing to learn if you need an assistant here. As for Andy, How bad is his wound at this point? she asked.

“ He needs to rest for a few weeks but I know that Andy will not and during that time his arm will lock up and fail him in some point thus permanent damage to the limb that can’t be corrected. “
Pappa Doc explains

Is there any extensive nerve or muscle damage?

No, but the trauma to the area with soft tissue is really bad

Will he be able to still fly his plane and take care of Stacey?

“ Andy’s recovery will be quick, once again thanks to you and it will be anywhere from three weeks to 6 for the healing process to be complete but that depends on him. “ Pappa explains

Wearing a medical gown that never covers everything, sho exits from behind the curtain and returns to the exam table for her exam. During the exam she continues to questions Pappa Doc

“So is there anything I should be aware of about this base?

Follow the rules and don’t wander into area you don’t belong thats all.

Maybe something I should check out if i get a chance?”

Ill make sure that Sp4 Davis gives you a tour of the female area after you leave here.

“Are you guys looking for any positions on the base that can be filled by a civilian?”

Yes, I'm currently recruiting for several positions but we can go over thoses in a bit. He explains as he finishes up with a snap of the glove as he throws the exam gloves into the trash receptacle.

Pappa Doc instructs Ms Sho to get dressed as he is exiting, turns to say “ I would like you and some of the others to accompany me if you would be interested. Things will be rought but nothing like what you guys already have experienced. “

And with that and a hand motion to Sp4 Davis they leave Ms Sho to get dressed and to meet him later in the Chow hall.
