(p.220) Epilogue
Where Night Is Day

James Kelly

Cornell University Press

In this epilogue, the author recalls his conversation with some residents with whom he worked in the intensive care unit (ICU) in the New Mexico teaching hospital and now were leaving because it was the end of their rotation. He says he felt a mixture of wonderment, puzzle, pride, and happiness for one resident, who had been so inept and timid the first weeks but now was the resident in charge, supervising the central line. Another intern went the opposite way—she came in with a hard attitude that faded into her real self that wasn't so bad and even a little endearing. A third intern said, “Great working with you guys.” The interns were happy in their way, going on, while the author and others who are staying are also happy in their way.
