Sample text

David's new roommate had recently been admitted with severely swollen legs which restricted his employment. His quiet demeanor was healing to all of us. We became absorbed in our reading material. We needed nothing more than just to be with Dave, content to sit in silence except for the constant beep of the pump which regulated his TPN (total parenteral nutrition), a nutritious formula which provided his daily sustenance. A stranger interrupted the silence when he invited us for refreshments in the lounge.

Craig's mother, recently widowed, had moved to the city to bake pies for the restaurant. We knew why Frank enjoyed the restaurant, for it had an ambiance of comfort and solitude. A young man, slim and trim in a plaid shirt and jeans, walked in. Frank called him to our table and introduced us to Craig. We had a lively discussion about Page 46 antiques and invited him to the antique auctions in quaint Shipshewana, a community near us. We offered to host him if he ever came. He thanked us and left.

If his dad had not said "Hello, Dave," I would have walked away from the cadaverous mass on the bed, which I did not recognize. His sunken eyes looked like dark marbles in a saucer of milk. His skin was greasy and mottled and hung loosely on his bones. His previously Page 21 well-managed red hair was receding and lusterless, which made his face look longer. We knew there was much more, but we saw enough to know that externally and internally, he was being devoured by a monster. The mucus membrane of his mouth was ulcerated from lesions, chemotherapy, and thrush, all complicated by a lack of immunity.
