Life transitions

On friday night I did ward call, and saw the two ends of life.

I had to declare an old lady dead, after she had passed away as a result of her cancer, in the palliative care ward.

Then as I was leaving the palliative care ward I saw a literally newborn baby being wheeled down the corridor in a crib obviously off to the maternity ward.

It says something about life, but I’m not sure what it is right now.
