passenger 58

Our man in the maroon tie is no longer wearing a tie. Instead, lying in a hospital bed with tubes coming out of his arms, he is numb and in a hospital gown. Neatly placed underneath a thin white sheet and covered with a tan and white hospital issued blanket, what is left of him is anchored and raised, depending on the damage done. His eyes closed, we believe him to be asleep, so we do not disturb him. However, we do take a seat next to him. I will be the first one on the watch, and you the next. So I assume that if you are feeling a little hungry, you might go and get something from that snack machine down the hall. You might want to call your loved one (s) and tell em’ that you might be a while on the coming back as we might be here a while.
