Hey!! What's the story?
She’d married a man who leant on the bar night after night, swaggering home, full of self importance, occasionally lashing out at her, fists flying. She was childless. Her husband if asked would say “women’s problems” not low sperm count.
The doctor sat on the edge of the bed. He looked too young.
The patient in the opposite bed was having her blood pressure taken.
“You’ve had a dormant infection for many years”
She saw a woman being wheeled to the bathroom, old and fragile.
She smiled. When she went home she’d suggest her husband be tested.
