The Hardest to Wipe Away

30 Oct

One of the loveliest ladies on my ward held onto my hand yesterday as our consultant talked to her about if she wanted all the stops to be pulled out if anything should happen or if she wanted to have a DNR order signed. I couldn’t do anything but let her think and talk and stroke my hand.

Afterwards, all I wanted to do was sit down in the middle of the ward and cry out all my tears.

    What you did was a very big Something.

    The tears go with the territory. It takes a lot of bravery to be a real doctor.
