Chapter 5

"So, do you think you're ready to blow this pop stand and go home?" Abbey Bartlet asked as she looked over Kelsey's chart.

"What you mean I don't have to eat anymore of this delicious hospital food?" teased Kelsey.

"You're making fun of the cuisine. That's a good sign."

"When can I get out of here?"

"How about tomorrow?"

"Really?!"

"Yes, really. "

"Yes!" Kelsey declared as she pumped her fist.

"Well, it sounds like you've made someone very happy," Toby remarked as he entered the room.

"Abbey says I can go home tomorrow."

"Is that wise?"

"Toby, there is no reason for her to stay. Kelsey is healing nicely and I think she'll recuperate better in her own bed," explained Abbey. "She can have physical therapy either at home or here at the hospital three times a week."

"I can handle that," replied Kelsey.

"Here's the part you may not like. While you're at home, no work. I mean it! I'm gong to leave strict instructions with C.J., Carol, Leo and my husband."

"No work?! Abbey, I'll go stir crazy."

"You are to rest, read a book, take up needlepoint. But there will be no White House documents in your home. Understand?"

"Yes ma'am," Kelsey conceded.

"And Iím holding you personally responsible, Toby."

"Yes ma'am."

"Good. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and break the news to my husband."
