Working in oncology.
I found out today that one of my favorite patients died. He was a 60 year old man who rode a motorcycle. We started talking about it because he was wearing his biker do rag to chemo. We compared bikes and talked about favorite places to ride. We were supposed to go for a ride together when he got better.................I am sad for his family and for those of us who got to know him during his brief time at the cancer clinic, but he was a follower of Jesus so I know I will get to see him again. It, really brings home the change to me, I'm not a pediatric out patient healthy child elective surgery nurse anymore.
