The strange world of ward 14


Imagine a hospital ward away from other wards down a long empty corridor. Entry is gained by an electronically secured entry system.

There is only one patient, a young man, who the staff visit and leave as quickly as they can. There is no small talk.

Medication is delivered in a lead container.

Visitors can visit at any time of the day, but may only stay for 30 minutes.

Who is the prisoner on this ward?

Well actually it’s my son who is undergoing radiotherapy.

He’ll be out tomorrow hopefully. I wonder how long he’ll glow in the dark?
