Today, rather I guess last night....I saved someones life. Did they know I saved their life? Maybe not. I pride myself on being calm. Being calm makes the patients calmer which makes their hearts calmer. Hopefully if I do my job right the patient will never know how close he or she came to meeting their maker. This patient came very close. Actually 2 of my patients came very close. I didn't let them get any closer. I am not bragging or patting myself on the back. Just stating the facts. So today. .... today.....I feel good. I feel happy about the job I did last night. The patient may not know I saved their life. That isn't important weather they know or not., how close they came. Actually I am happy they didn't know how close they came. But I know......I know. And I am glad. Makes me love my job every single day and night. Every nurse and doctor and policeman or any other person who does this type of job will know what this feeling is. Just knowing....just knowing you made a difference counts.
