"Worry is like a rocking chair--it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere."
Constable Ican met the Physician's Assistant and the nurse at the door . He told them he had found Calab unconscious at the foot of the basement stairs and had carried him upstairs and laid him on the couch. Further he pointed out that since he called them Calab had regained consciousness but neglected to mention the spitting heads. As Ican left to go back to his office he said “ You probably should give Calab some oxygen”.
“We’ll determine that “ the PA said in a somewhat disturbed voice.
Soon after Ican left Calab began to have trouble breathing and the nurse was sent to bring in the oxygen from the ambulance. As they administered the oxygen his breathing returned to normal.
Calab could remember going to the basement door and then he had no memory of anything until he found the PA giving him oxygen. He did not remember Ican, or the spitting heads. That entire part of his memory was just not there.
Constable Ican went to see Mrs. Trumble and told her the entire story, complete with the spitting heads.
She laughed and said “ Now you are really part of this town. You can expect stranger things to happen and we are glad you’re here when they do. You aren’t thinking of quitting are you.”
