Tyrone Johnson has a couple of years left until he retires from his job in Boise where he has worked for over 15 years. Tyrone is a cardiac surgeon. Tyrone has loved this job as it has involved him saving lives.
Tyrone is 5’11”, has lots of dark black hair with a few greying pieces at the side of his head. He wears small dark round glasses and has a moustache that is almost completely black. Tyrone is a large man. Tyrone is a very kind man who is always so calm and patient with everyone.
To work, Tyrone wears a red tie, with a sharp white shirt, some shiny loafers and a classy grey suit. He has a very precious gold ring that his wife Laquisha gave him as a wedding gift 30 years ago and a small gold watch that a client gave him. Tyrone has twin boys called Demonstrell and Dontavious who are 9 years old who are both in preschool.
Every day Tyrone travels into Boise but today was going to be a very different day, he was flying to Boulder on a business trip to a meeting with all the top doctors in the world. His alarm did not go off and he overslept. He missed his train to the airport and had to get a later flight. As he settled into his seat on the plane, the air hostess offered him black coffee. He read the news and then closed his eyes. This afternoon there was going to be an important meeting and he didn’t want to be tired.
In his sleep he could hear voices screaming at the back of the plane and then an announcement asking if there was a doctor on board. He waited five minutes until another announcement came and by this time he could tell it was a ladies voice that was screaming. He got up from his seat and looked for the air hostess to let her know that he is a doctor and can he help. As he got closer and closer he knew that she was pregnant and was about to have a baby. Tyrone had never felt himself panic before. He was now not going to operate on a heart but instead was going to help deliver a baby. Tyrone took a deep breath and decided to calm down. He was normally so calm but this time so many people were watching him and he did not know if he could do this. Taqueen was moved to the front of the plane to have the baby. Normally, Tyrone saved lives but now high above the Atlantic Ocean he was bringing a new life into the world. After the baby had been delivered Tyrone sat there holding the baby in his arms. Taqueen decided to call the baby after him – Lil Tyrone.
Tyrone arrived in Boulder exhausted but was proud of what he had just done. He left his luggage at the hotel and went to the meeting where he could tell the other doctors this crazy story.
