She's come undone

Kim was a math teacher until arthritis and toxic drugs got her number.  She arrived one day by cab, dirty, vomit-splattered, too weak and dehydrated to come inside.

I saw her at the curbside and sent her straight to the ER.

“She’s a math teacher,” I told the ER doc twice.  “This could be you or me.”
