Ted really doesn't want to be here, in more ways than one. He'd been very definite in his decision, was ready to move on. Now he's stuck, strapped down in a hospital bed in St. Joseph's ICU. He knows that once the respirator is out there will be questions. He sees the weepy, even angry eyes of his wife and daughter, pleading, questioning. He knows they will ask him and he never expected to have to provide an answer. He could make a break for it… through the window perhaps, although he imagines the IV tubes would complicate things and has a sudden flash of himself hospital gown bungee jumping, bouncing back and forth between floors, heart monitor and oxygen mask suspended, gown blown open, dancing.
