"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,
like a salted
The world spins on when we go, doesn't it. There's a kind of comfort in that, I suppose.
It’s been a good dayA hard one But a good one
Sympathy to you, John, because you've lost a friend. I wonder if he/she waited for your return? My Dad waited for my arrival at his bedside in 1983.Yes, life goes on. I liked Auden's words that I heard first in the movie "4 Weddings and a Funeral".Big hugs ...
It was a complicated case and one for obvious reasons I can’t discuss l I’m just glad I was working today
I'm glad you were there, too. I'm sure your presence helped the patient and family more that you can imagine.Hugs!
I too think your patient possibly felt safe knowing you were nearby John and so could then relax enough to let go xx
Not the case but I’m glad I was there to help sort things
The goats carry on living their own lives regardless, as does all of nature. Sitting quietly seems right.
The Four of them stood for an age against the bluest of skies
A sad but inevitable part of your job …. One can only ask to go peacefully. What’s that in the teacup ? Is it jelly ? XXXX
It is ice chips , I was dehydrated so needed lots of ice cold juice
Even when death is expected, it shakes you. Professional distance only goes so far, especially with certain patients. Sympathy to you and his family. xx
It was a peaceful death, surrounded by love
My sincere sympathies. May God have an open arms for him. So happy he waited for you. Love to you and his family.
Hard not to become fond, sometimes; makes your job harder, probably; but you are human...and not afraid to love.x
He was fondly thought of by many staff
Both of my husbands died of cancer - one kidney one brain - both died at peace both physically and with themselves - one just as important as the other. Thinking of you this evening John x
So honored to know you.
What happened to the stranded on the rocky beach point goats.
They’ve all been saved and are back on the orme
That's very good news!
Wishing everyone peace. You’re a good man, John Gray.
As a post, this is the perfect haiku about the circle and cycle of life. Thank you, John.
Death indoors Life on the Orme
You and all others who do your job and similar jobs must have admirable internal emotional resilience, or maybe you just get used to it? I would not wish to have to get used to it. Or maybe you are just as tough as old boots inside? Whatever the explanation, you are needed.
Tough….yesBrittle… sometimesYou learn the tricks to get things done in a way that you would want for yourself But you need balance in your life to do things without hurting yourself
Lizzy asked my question - we’re the stranded goats saved, and you’ve answered us. I’m glad your patient was surrounded by his family at the end, and in the best of care. That’s a fortunate way to go. Another question - why does ice help with dehydration? I’d not heard of that.
Because when it melts in the mouth it becomes water... (?)
I’m guessing the question was more, why ice rather than just cold water/juice, and I wondered that too.
We have an ice machine and I love extra cold drinks . I had finished my drink leaving the ice and was about to top up the drink
A peaceful passing without pain and surrounded by loved ones seems just right. Watching someone "let go" brings lots of emotion regardless of the circumstances. Take care John.
We all wish for a peaceful death. Your writing is lovely.Love,Janie
As I have told you before, I admire you for the work you do. I guess in a way it helps one to appreciate life and that every day is a blessing.
You provide an important service, John. XX
My heart goes out to you.
I'm trying to imagine what it feels like after attending a peaceful death. Sad satisfaction? a gentle melancholy?
Sorry to hear about that John. But it does sound as if he went well; and that's a blessing.
You are a good man with a good heart.Gentle yet strong.
We do really need balance in our lives.And if I ever need that kind of care, I hope I have someone who is capable and kind, and looks after me in a way that they would wish for themselves. As you do.
There's a touch of poetry to this one.
Taking care of others, taking care of yourself.
Those four lines are quite poetic John.
I think he waited for you.
