 Bandages soaked with blood.

Ruslan is 37 years of age, a soldier. [He] has wounds to the chest and abdomen.

A crushing injury of the right kidney, liver, diaphragmatic rupture, and pulmonary contusion.

Severe shock. Four surgeries, three liters of transfused blood.

The ten blind shrapnel wounds do not count.

It’s morning. Nurse Victoria changes [Ruslan’s] bandages.

Here at Mechnikov, life has begun again. [Ruslan is starting] to act up.
