fire island sunset

sunset

sunset

Rocks returned from clinic and decided that she needed to purge Luke from BreakAway. As if in agreement Jet followed her as she sanitized the scent of Sophia and Luke, and removed all the evidence of him from her vessel. She didn’t feel any emotion as she dropped things in the dumpster, and reminded herself of his sin. It was a cleansing moment.

She would need several weeks to recover, but it would be quiet time for Rocks. She had things to do anyway.

She was pissed. It was a time to get busy. She was a woman on a mission. FIRE On! He had walked the dock without so much as a fuck you. She felt that the past three years were flowing away with the tide. What a waste. THAT BITCH! What was he thinking? She couldn’t wrap her head around it. So she would make it her mission to erase him. It was sunset.

<meta name=”description” content=”Luke arrived from Miami with the scent of Sophia.  Walter brought a sick hip and ended up with complications.  It was a challenging week for Rocks.  “>

 

 

 

 

It was wild Wednesday for Rocks. Luke got back from Miami with the scent of Sophia all over him and his laundry.   It lingered all night for Rocks to dwell on as they lay together the night he returned. They talked very little and it was a pregnant pause in their life.   Rocks was mad, Luke was sad.

Rocks left for the clinic in a bad state of mind, Luke took the old Jeep in to town. He ordered an egg sandwich at a diner and considered his options. Chaz had essentially offered him a promotion, and he couldn’t leave until the job was finished. He knew his life with Rocks was over. They had lain beside each other without touching, and that was unheard of.  Luke was empty and felt lost.  Rocks wanted him off the boat.

Walter brought in a sick hip replacement on Plavix that Rocks had to cancel.  Her doctor felt that she needed more work up and blood pressure stabilization.  Walter had a hissy fit and took the patient to the hospital.  There were complications and the patient lost 4 units of blood that could have been prevented if she had been advised to stop the Plavix as Rocks had suggested.  Walter had skipped the meeting and snubbed the Cardiology Clearance Guidelines.  Closed door meetings with Vince followed.  Rocks was not included.   She was relieved but would have had plenty to say.

Meanwhile, back on BreakAway, Jet could sense the tension and as the weekend approached, the pair were contemplating the haul out and getaway.  Rocks had been quiet and Luke had been busy working late.  Neither had discussed the obvious.  It wouldn’t wait long, neither was sleeping.  Rocks was distracted at work, and the staff was concerned.  They thought it was about the case that went bad, they had no idea how she handled cases like that.  They were not aware of her personal life, she always kept those issues quiet.   Read about it at Healing Fire Island, by Chery Fee.

Healing Fire Island | Clearing Customs

cropped-p1000184.jpg

==========================

 

It’s a beautiful day here and I was thinking about Rocks and Luke arriving on island, clearing customs and immigration and introducing themselves to their new colleagues. They were so excited! I walked on the beach thinking about having just sailed over after 10 days at sea, remembering just such a trip and how wonderful and relaxing the ocean can be. The sun can be such a friend. Fire Island was hiding many awesome adventures and a few secrets, but first Rocks needed to get busy getting the clinic up and running, they had been down for several weeks waiting for her to arrive. They got the yacht shipshape and she had her clinic tour. Jet got her land legs back. They found their favorite tiki bars and restaurants of course and were comfortable on island without much trouble.  Rocks was making plans for her anesthesia department!  Clearing customs was a bit complex because they were planning an extended stay, however they had a genuine interest in the island, so they cleared customs without incident.

Rocks got her work permit and Luke had a provisional permit as he had yet to find a job.  He was really only concerned about playing in the surf.  He only intended on staying a couple of months, not that she knew that.  He was a little non-committal.  She did know that.  It really wasn’t fair that he came at all, but who would have passed up a trip to the island?  They were good together, however their mutual goals were quite different.  It would play out tragically almost, but that will come out later.  The three made good traveling pals anyway.  If they had any concerns over clearing customs, their fears were unfounded.

Their marina was busy but comfortable and they settled in easily, provisioned the boat and got cleaned up for the yacht club and proceeded to meet Rocks new colleagues.  It was a little disconcerting as they were met by all the surgeons, most of whom have their instructions ready for her, and suggestions for Luke on his potential role in island life.  A couple discussed social issues only, and the evening ended on a light note with Rocks’ friend Tracy behind the bar.  They made their way back to BreakAway in the moonlight convinced they would assimilate into their new group without any trouble.  There were just two of the group they feel could be trouble-Walter and Nici.  Follow the story as it unfolds at Healing Fire Island, by Chery Fee.

Healing Fire Island is about an anesthesiologist who sails to Fire Island to rescue an anesthesia department in the tropics.  She brings her boyfriend and her cat along for the ride for adventures on her 50 foot sloop BreakAway.  They find romance on the island and make lifelong friends while they explore the wonderful bays and anchorages they discover.

The clinic has its own set of issues, which Dr. RocksAnn Riggs manages to work through, and she will offer the reader a detailed review of the daily routine that an anesthesiologist handles in the clinic.  The reader will learn about giving and getting anesthesia, the stresses and issues that doctors and nurses work through in the clinic and the operating room, and problems and problem solving in the operating room and recovery room.  Rocks discusses fictional cases based on factual cases in an entertaining fashion, and this medical thriller takes place in paradise.  Rocks is a sailor living aboard a sailboat, and when she is not working, she goes out sailing, to keep the reader balanced and relaxed.

Rocks’ friends enjoy sailing and bring her into a top-secret jewelry ring that will prove extremely lucrative, however dangerous, and this provides high level suspense  in the story.  Meanwhile, Rocks’ boyfriend Luke has a dalliance with a Latina named Sophia while on a business trip to Miami, and this gives Rocks an excuse to accept an invitation from a wildly successful local attorney.  Fire Island Clinic is a hotbed for situations, in that the island’s most prestigious citizens either work there or have their surgeries or consultations there.  Indeed, Rocks began to discover that she would need to ‘manage’ a couple of difficult personalities in the clinic.
