Panel 1: In Rose's hospital room, a masked, gloved doctor stands by her bed [note to future readers: this comic is set right around the time Canada began to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously]. The doctor is a relatively young woman with short black hair and light brown skin. She tilts Rose's bed so that Rose is sitting up, then puts Rose's glasses on her.

Dr. Lim: Hi there. I'm Dr. Lim. Let's get you sitting up.

Panel 2: Dr. Lim sits down beside Rose's bed.

Dr. Lim: Now, I know you have glaucoma and a limited field of vision, so I'm going to stay right here in front of you, okay? I need to ask you a few questions.

Panel 3:

Dr. Lim: Do you know where you are?

Rose [struggles to speak]: ......In......

Dr. Lim: Okay. Don't worry. Can you tell me your name?

Panel 4:

Rose: Not...with...words...?

Dr. Lim: Luckily, we do have other options.

Alt-Text: Words are hard. I say that to my students a lot.
