in October 2009, Colleen S. Burns was taken to the emergency room at St. Joseph’s Hospital Center, suffering from a drug overdose. Although a nurse told doctors that Burns was recovering from her overdose, those same doctors pronounced her dead.
But Burns was not dead. In fact, a number of signs clearly pointed to her being alive. When a nurse performed a mandatory reflex test on Burns, her toes curled downward. She appeared to be breathing independently of a hospital respirator, and her lips and tongue were said to have moved moments before doctors prepared to remove her organs.Nonetheless, the nurse then followed instructions to give Burns a powerful sedative, a seemingly unnecessary move if the patient were actually dead.Thankfully, Burns awoke moments before doctors were going to cut her open to remove the organs from her presumed-dead body.
And after I tell him which side, he draws an X on my left leg with a Sharpie.

Good point, I guess. I hadn't thought of it that way. Better for him to ask me and show me he's marking it than not to at all. Was still a little unsettling, you know? But I guess he had a good reason.
