A different day.
Thank you all for your emails and replies. I feel better this morning.
Death is a part of life and I do understand it. Believe me. I also believe when it is your time the most skilled doctor won't be able to save you. Karma. So many times you feel a sense of relief the persons suffering has ended and they are on their way to a brand new journey. Yes...I do believe in a afterlife.
I guess I was just unprepared for this. Shocked. He was so healthy looking. So it hurt.
I worked oncology for 10 years. Loved it. People would ask me how I could work that department and get to know all these people that would eventually die. Well believe it or not not everyone dies from cancer anymore. We have some very successful treatment out there. But with the ones who didn't have a good outcome it was wonderful to be able to help them and keep them comfortable. And a honor to get to know them and their families.
So I will get by this. I work tonight starting my long stretch. Should be interesting as my back is really on the brink today. We also are expecting severe storms. My computer has been off more then on lately due to the lightening storms all over. Strange weather.
Speaking of which. I can hear the thunder so I should close down again. Thanks again.
