Mission: When on Risa...
Location: Starbase 12 Medical bay

Patra woke again and looked around; she saw a nurse at the station watching her like a hawk Well I see Doctor Johnson must have spoken to his friend, damn you Lieutenant how am I going to have some fun? she thought. It must be the beginning of Alpha shift as she started to notice more staff. A young red head female walked toward her bed with a PaDD in her left hand.

Patra was mesmerized by the beautiful red head. "Hello, I am Doctor Holliday, the neurosurgeon that will help with the nerve damage you suffered." she said smiling at Patra. Patra felt like the whole universe lite up when she saw that smile. "Hello, Patra Rommel, engineer who found out trying to swallow plasma fire is bad for you" she croaked out in an attempt to be joking.

"Doctor Holliday looked down at her PaDD, "Yes I see that, and Doctor Nethercott will be seeing you for that. In fact, you are scheduled at 09:00 for the procedure. Nothing to worry about he is a fine Pulmonologist and surgeon; however, he has the bedside manner of Doctor Frankenstein." Doctor Holliday said with a wink and a smile.

"I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself and do a quick exam if you do not mind?" with that Doctor Holliday pulled out a medical tricorder and pushed a button on the biobed. She began her scans. As Doctor Holliday was wrapping up her scan an elderly, balding man in a white lab coat approached Patra's bed, "What are you doing with my patient Doctor Holiday?" inquired the man in a stern tone. "Just doing a preliminary neruo exam on my patient, also Doctor Nethercott. I am finished with my exam, have a good day." she replied in a saccharine tone of voice.

As she backed up and began to turn away from Patra's bed she mouthed to Patra "I told You with a wink and a smile, "I will see you tomorrow, best of luck on your procedure." and she walked away as Doctor Nethercott harrumphed. "Now to business young lady, I am Lieutenant Commander Nethercott, and I am here to repair the damage to your throat and lungs. As I understand it you were caught in a Plasma Flash over fire and then hit an electrically shorting panel?" he stated more than asked. "Why is it that you engineers are so injury prone, don't you folks ever follow protocol?

Never mind. So I will be putting you out with general anesthesia and going into your lungs with micro and nano technology scopes to repair the damage. All in All the procedure should take about five hours. Any questions?" Patra shook her head no, just wanting to get this vituperative Doctor away from her. "Good, Nurse Ball please begin preparing the patient for surgery." with that he walked away.
