Think of the new patients as job security. And think of Shrek as a reason to outlive him.

Oh boy do I feel your pain PF. We've had admissions and discharges GALORE this last week. I pounded out 2 DC summaries last day of my rotation, but I've managed to avoid doing the admissions for a bit. I hate admissions!

I hear you on that. Do I want to out live my daughter or the other way around. I want to be here for her, but yet I don't think I can handle losing another child.

I went looking for this quote:

In peace, children inter their parents; war violates the order of nature and causes parents to inter their children.
Herodotus (The Histories of Herodotus - Book I, ca. 440 BCE)


I found this one too:


When a parent dies, you lose your past; when a child dies, you lose your future. - Anonymous


Now I'm sitting here in tears, thinking about the son I almost had, who would have turned 21 in July. He was still born after 23 weeks of pregnancy. Amniocentesis ruptured the amniotic sac

Thank you for those quotes. They certainly made me stop and think.

When I worked in the Newborn Nursery, I had a couple of stillborn babies I had to prepare. Wrapping them up so the parents could say goodbye was so hard to do. One was small enough to fit in the shoe box.
