Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 167 )
I thought that we might be in for a busy day, but busy was no way to describe it, I think that hectic would better serve. Jenny was a tower of strength, she averted many a crisis with a helping hand and a re-assuring smile.
And there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have survived the day without the help of Mrs McGinty’s constant supply of tea and assorted cakes and biscuits to complement it. She proved herself a treasure once again.
I had to send some prospective patients away and ask them to return the following day. To say that we had been overwhelmed was an understatement. I found it unbelievable the amount of patients we had processed in those few short hours.
When you consider that only yesterday I was worried that I might not make a profitable concern out of my surgery. And today I was seriously considering the possibility of hiring another Doctor to assist with my caseload. It is amazing the difference a day can make. I know now that I was right in pursuing my idea regarding a surgery at my home.
Jenny had proved herself invaluable during the day, whatever came her way she handled competently. I had definitely chosen the right applicant in her case, and our system worked perfectly, it was ease itself to use.
