I’m working on an arc in my short story where my character falls backward off bus steps and hits the back of his head. He goes to the emergency room with his sister. They are both Christmas Elves and aren’t familiar with human hospitals. They were in the waiting room at the end of the last scene. He started throwing up from the headache, and the intake nurse was helping them. She told them that since the emergency room is busy (it’s in NYC) that it will be a while before he sees a doctor. I wanted the doctor to order a CT scan before he sees the patient, because of the symptoms he’s having. That way they will know whether he has an epidural hematoma, etc, and he could go down the priority list when it shows he doesn’t have a brain bleed. I want to keep the story to my character’s POV, so I’m not sure how to start the next chapter. I do want to write the scene with the CT, to show how nervous and scared of the machine he is. I had a head CT three years ago, and it was quick and easy, but I’m familiar with such experiences. Do I skip to him being in the CT room, with a short explanation as to why, or something else? Is there another direction I can take this to make things interesting?
