Ok, So Blog A Day 17 - No Blog Tonight

My favorite patient died today.  I worked with her for almost 3 years.  She was an amazing woman who was loved by her family and the team that cared for her.  I was able to sit with her family after the death and share stories and laugh and pray with them.  It was a beautiful death.

I may talk about this patient in a future post, but I am too emotionally exhausted to say a whole lot tonight.  All I want to do is go to sleep, but Babaloo is making meatloaf, comfort food at its best.  I may also finish editing the Thanksgiving Mix Tape tonight.  It will be released this week for those of you would like to listen to it for your travels to family and friends this weekend.

I feel honored to have been part of this wonderful woman's life.  I was at a funeral yesterday, and the chaplain (a coworker) presiding over the funeral said this, and it's stuck with me for the last day:

"A well lived life does not end tragically, but completely."

Live a well lived life, people.  It's good advice for all of us, myself included.
