Helen, et al ...

I think that most of my time with patients is just talking.  In some
cases I think that I'm the closest thing they have to a family.

I look at pictures, talk about grandkids etc most of the time.

I had one emphysema patient who called me one Saturday that he
had an emergency.  I drove to his home just to find out that his
kids came in for his anniversatry and he wanted them to meet me.

I have forgeooten how many VCR movies I have sat through just keeping
a patient company.

Talk is the best BEST medicine.
