Nursed back to health

May 6, 2015 - 1:02pm
I sat there, tears streaming down my face, trying to catch my breath. There she was, hugging me, telling me everything was going to be alright, and asking if I wanted her to drive me home - which happened to be a good hour away and we were having an ice storm. I was at my doctor's office and a physician, who was not my regular cardiologist, had just informed me that I had a second life-threatening heart rhythm disorder and would need an Implantable Cardioversion Defibrillator. He left the room briskly after giving me the details, but she stayed. "She" was Laura - a nurse. Laura is truly amazing. I will never forget her compassion and humanity that day. She became a rock I could count on when the going got tough. It might have just been all in a day's work for her, but to me, it meant the world. It wasn't enough for Laura to just take care of my medical needs. She recognized that there was a whole lot of healing I had to do that wasn't just about my heart. After I got my device, she invited me to an incredible conference for young people with ICDS that she and some other nurses were part of organizing. Sitting at my first support group with other patients, I watched Theresa, another nurse, wipe her eyes as she cried along with us while we told our stories.
