:heartbeatWill others please share of their experiences where the patient
died on a particular date of significance. Iam really interested in
this as it seems to comfort the families. Do you think this is real
or just a coincidence?
I have a couple that I can remember as a hospice nurse that have
really stood out in my mind.
One paticular one, was where a man who had a daughter and had been
estranged from her for 7 years. She came back to him when she heard of
his illness, they reunitied, and she was his primary caregiver. He died on her birthday.
The other one, was where an elderly woman who died on what would have been their 75th
wedding anniversary. Her spouse had already passed, but on his death bed had
made the family promise to take care of her since he no longer could. This comforted the
family knowing that grandpa had come for her.
Do you believe these stories? Out of 356 days in a year in which one could die, why would a dying patient
choose a particular date? Please share others .
