The Patient #hiscancer, round 1b.

The patient concerns himself with the world outside.
The bills that need to be paid, how much gas is in the car.
Where are the children?
Do they have what they need?
Is it raining?
What’s in the mail?
What day is it?

The world inside happens with no regard for sunrises and sunsets.
Medicines that kill, rescue, disperse,clean,hydrate.
Headaches that visit uninvited.

The patient’s world reduced to the delight of discharge, a friendly nurse, positive feedback or the disappointment of values in numbers.

The slightest change, the inevitable shift and the relinquishment of control.

The patient, for the first time, learns to dance.
