Medical staff story 1


A sweet little old  Hispanic gal,  fresh from open heart surgery,  finally decided to take a Percocet at bedtime.

Two hours later she coded.   The response was fast as the whole seventh floor was heart staff and always happy to help out at a code.  Revived.  She opened her eyes, looked intently into mine and said ” It was the pill.”

She was moved to the SCC, the ICU for open heart.  I would miss her.  Fortunately for me, I was soon  invited to work in this unit.  I was very happy to be there.

Woman, friend, mother, RN, photographer, gardener, writer, researcher, observer, swimmer. Pretty much the same as everyone else with my own little twist to things. RA, and three cancers and counting. Life is good despite the obstacles. It's worth the ride just to see the infinite variations of the human spirit.
