Remembering

I had the thought today that it was finally Thrusday, so I could go see my patient tonight.

And then remembered that he is no longer with us.

This makes me so sad. It’s not the first time either. I picked up my hospice badge the other day and remembered. And last Thursday, I remembered. And every time Gail sends an update email, I remember.

This has not been so easy. Will I feel this way about my future patients, too?
