Fellow Patient (1)

He fell from a quite height and passed out. He recovered consciousness to find that he could not move his legs. The doctor told him that he broke his spine and numbness in his lower body would be permanent

My fellow patient (whom I call Sato-san) never looks depressed in spite of the hardship he must face for the rest of the life. Sato-san told us how he peed with the help of a tube despite the fact that he never had a desire to urinate. He told us how strange it was to see blood oozing out of a cut on his leg after having hit it somewhere without feeling any pain. His stories would have been creepy, had not he told them cheerfully, putting punch lines in between.

I sometimes get glimpses of Sato-san rubbing his legs on the bed with silent sorrow in his face. He knows his future is not bright, but hardly let other people show sympathy for his misfortune.

“If I look depressed, what my family members should do. I want them to be happy with me,” he once said. Great man!
