This week I have been reminded of how our time on this earth is so short. Ed, one of the nurses at work, passed away suddenly. He was well loved and adored by all the staff and we will miss him terribly. I went to his Memorial on Saturday and it was a reunion of old and new friends. We set aside all the past differences and remembered the life that he lived.
We see a lot of deaths at work. We can never really prepare for all the ones we see. Nurses band together in support for the families. Taking care of people is something we do well. But sometimes we forget to take care of each other. Especially when something like this happens to one of our own.
Today, I received word that another staff member passed away. I am reeling with the news. I don't know how much more we can take. Please remember us in your prayers. We need all the support we can get.
