Spock took a seat next to M’Benga after administering the serum. Even through his own fever, he focused his gaze intently on the doctor. He nodded along with the man’s statements, handing him a few monitoring instruments that were sitting on the counter. Just the basics. “Let me know how I can assist you.” Since he had begun to show symptoms, Spock had been excused from duty with the option of remaining quarantined in his quarters or confined to the med-bay. He had chosen the latter, thinking he could be of more use.
"That is so." The Vulcan nodded, eyes slipping toward the clock at the mention of the timeframe. "I will remain here if that is not disagreeable to you." Apart from the logical function of being able to corroborate M’Benga’s notes (or even take dictation should his condition deteriorate exponentially), Spock believed he could provide some level of stability and calm during the process.
The doctor nodded in appreciation when Spock sat down. He was staying then. At least he didn’t need to worry about something happening without anyone there to come to his aid. He took his instruments and took his readings, writing as he went. “Temperature 38.8 degrees Celsius, blood pressure normal, heart rate normal, metabolism normal. Slight nausea and a mild headache, normal for this stage in the illness. The next stage of the as-of-yet-unnamed disease, decreased respiratory functions, is projected to begin within the half hour. Absence or delay in this symptom would indicate that the experimental treatment has a positive effect.”
He said this aloud as well for Spock’s benefit. If for whatever reason Geoff was unable to take readings or otherwise make notes or help himself, Spock would be better capable of helping if he knew the current readings and the timetable. “Everything is here more or less. At least as far as most basic emergencies are concerned. There’s tri-ox here in case the serum simply doesn’t react at all and I go into the next stage of the illness.” Well there wasn’t a crash cart in there though if got to the point where Spock had to use it then basic first aid wouldn’t really do much for him. He was just trying to think of everything. Best to prepare for the worst case and it doesn’t happen than to have a worst case scenario catch you by surprise.
