same bed

یه شب اورژانس خیلی خسته بودم، تکست ارتوپدی رو برداشتم نگاه میکردم، اولش این رو خوندم. خیلی قشنگ بود.
بعدا همون تکست رو پیدا کردم، منتها این متن توش نبود، نگو یه ورژن دیگه کتاب بود. شک کردم اصلا اون کتاب بوده یا نه! خلاصه، یه دفعه دیگه که ورق میزدم کتابه رو تو اورژانس، پیدا کردم، سریع ازش عکس گرفتم، اومدم خونه و پیدا کردمش و میگذارم بخونین. منتها با تأمل بخونین:

‘All these hags’
Once, after a stay in hospital with a fracture, a patient who was not quite as deaf as she was supposed to be, told one of us (JML) how she had overheard a newly arrived orthopaedic surgeon say to the Ward nurse ‘What are we going to do with all these hags?’ As he progressed down the ward, turning first to the left and then to the beds on the right, his mood became morose, then black—as if he was getting angry that all these ‘hags’ were clogging up his beds, preventing his scientific endeavours. But what was really happening, my patient suspected, was that, as he turned to left and right, he was really nodding goodbye to his humanity, and, dimly aware of this, he was angry to see it go. On this view, these rows of hags were like buoys in the night, marking his passage out of our world. We all make this trip. Is there any way back? The process of becoming a doctor takes us away from the very people we first wanted to serve. Must medicine take the brightest and the best and turn us into quasi monsters?
The answer to these questions came unexpectedly in the months that followed: sheer pressure of work drove this patient's observations out of my mind. It was winter, and there was ‘flu. In the unnatural twilight of a snowy day I drifted from bed to bed in a stupor of exhaustion with a deepening sense of a collapse that could not be put off…It was all I could do to climb into bed: but when I awoke, I found I had somehow climbed into a patient's bed, who had kindly moved over to make space for me, and was now looking at me with concern in her eyes. Herein lay the answer: the hag must make room for the doctor, and the doctor must make room for the hag: we are all in the same bed.
