My mother isn’t protocol! I know you know her as just patient X but she’s a mom, comedian, friend a food connoisseur and my inspiration just to start the list. Yet I understand your tireless work demands you never get too attached for many don’t make it but does it have to be so cold?. It often feels when we discuss her condition that we’re in a meat freezer where people have lost their humanity as a whole. I ask you to break through your protocol and try something new as if this was someone you actually knew…before.
FOOTNOTE- How does one touch a doctor who has never met a loved one who is lying in such a condition?
