  • The Man by the Window
  • In Jefferson Memorial Hospital, two men, both in bad shape, were confined to a room in the cheerless recovery wing on the twelfth floor.
  • Mr. Vincent, the man in the bed by the only window, was doing poorly after the removal of his lung. He sat there by the window and between labored breaths he told his roommate, Parker, all the things he saw outside.
  • "Mr. Vincent, Mr. Vincent ... oh, no." She turned and with her hand covering her mouth, she ran from the room. She was back in a moment with the floor doctor and a specialist. The floor doctor straightened up and shook his head. "He's gone," he said.
  • When the nurse was finished with him, she wheeled Mr. Vincent's bed out of the way and rolled Parker over to the window. He brought his face to the window. He was amazed to see the only view he had was of a brick wall!
  • Sometimes a positive outlook can make a bad situation better.
