  • Ασθενή έχομεν. Εις τον γύψον τον εβάλαμεν. Τον δοκιμάζομεν εάν ημπορεί να περπατάει χωρίς τον γύψον. Σπάζομεν τον αρχικόν γύψον και ξαναβάζομεν ενδεχομένως τον καινούργιο εκεί όπου χρειάζεται [...] Ας προσευχηθώμεν να μη χρειάζεται ξανά γύψον. Εάν χρειάζεται, θα του τον βάλομεν. Και το μόνον που ημπορώ να σας υποσχεθώ, είναι να σας καλέσω να ειδήτε και σεις το πόδι χωρίς γύψον!
    • We have a patient. We put him in a plaster cast. We try to see whether he could walk without the cast. We break open the first cast, and we eventually put the new one on, where it is needed. […] Let us pray that he will not need a plaster cast again. If he needs it, then we shall put it on him. And the only thing that I can promise you, is to invite you also to see the leg without a plaster cast!
