An angry hostile old man arrived suddenly to occupy the other bed in his double room. He was obnoxious, shouting at the nurses and using racial slurs. This was the least of his troubles though, he had cancer. A daughter that lived near the hospital, refused to visit her father, his friends and colleagues barely spoke to him on the phone, no one would visit the old man.
Allen contemplated the dilemma and bitterness of the old man and the lessons learned from his hospital stay. Allen is a great storyteller,this recommended for fans of medical drama and short stories. With thanks to the author for the direct e-copy for the purpose of review.
Certainly not a new revelation by any means, it’s a poignant reminder worth articulating for potential readers to renew one’s sense of purpose and act accordingly during our time remaining on earth.
I highly recommend this Memoir so you can see for yourself how Van Allen arrived at his own epiphany pertaining to the hierarchy of importance while hospitalized.
