Thanks for sharing such a moving story. It must be hard to do that, to walk away knowing that another is grieving and needs to be comforted. Could you perhaps talk to a chaplain so the mother wont feel alone? If you yourself can’t do it, then there must be someone who can offer comfort.
I don’t believe it is just a job to you. This incident has changed your perception. Patients are people. You saw this at that moment. Maybe you need to harden your heart, so you can continue to do your job.
But continue to study Jesse, for your wisdom will change the world.
