Awww, so bittersweet. Thank you for what you do for your patients! I was also in the medical field, so have an understanding of what you've had to deal with. Well done in your telling of Mr. Nash's story.
This is a great story. You do a wonderful job of developing the story. I'm not sure you needed the opening paragraph, maybe you could have sprinkled part of of the back story throughout the story. The second paragraph drew me in and I felt like I could picture Mr Nash and his nurse. You did a nice job of showing the conflicts, and I liked the resolution of them too. The ending was very bittersweet for sure. Good job.
Your story hit home with me since my mother also had a fall and had a serious head injury and my siblings and I all arrived to be with her. Thankfully, she survived that. We all appreciate people like you who take such excellent care of patients. Thank you for your medical perspective. Blessings!
True stories punch through. I just want to say thank you for being ready to not just hear God but be obedient to His voice. Blessings
A beautiful testimony - not only yours but for Mr Nash, now at peace. Thankyou for sharing. Blessings.
Congratulations on ranking 1st in your level and 11th overall. Happy Dance!
I loved this! Those are the "real" moments that keep true believers going. A touch of heaven right here on earth. I'm so glad you listened to the Spirit and asked him to pray. Beautiful!
Oh, my, your writing has moved me to tears! No wonder you took first place with this beautiful story. I hope many health care providers have a chance to read this. You've given us all such a simple and appropriate way to reach beyond the physical into a spiritual connection: "Are you a praying man?" I wish I'd thought of a bridge like that as I prayed silently at many of my patients' bedside. Thank you for sharing this with us, and thank you for your comment on my "Farewell to Seventeen" diary story, too. God bless you, your work, and your writing of many more such touching stories!
