My story with out using names, started by my pt seeing my name on the white-board and started crying. My name is very uncommon, and it turns out her daughter's name was the same. My 92 yr old pt explained her daughter, with my name, had died a couple of months before. I explained to her that it was her daughter from heaven, who made sure I took care of her, because our uncommon name was the same. My patient stopped crying and was smiling. Just as I was leaving the room the on-call cardiologist came in and introduced herself...Well to my and my patient's surprise, she had the same uncommon first name. I knew then her daughter really was looking over her mother.
Please email me with any similar type stories.... I love the goose-pimples
