the most that happens is a baby is left on stairs and a man sort of trips over it, but it’s over quickly and no damage is done to the baby

The main character is abandoned because of a birth defect, and later taken to a faith healer to cure his disability. The character states that he cannot be a father or continue to be in a relationship because he will soon begin to lose cognitive function; another character later agrees with him.
