Early one morning, my husband, who works in a funeral home, woke me, complaining of severe abdominal pains. We rushed to the emergency room, where tests were performed to determine the source of the pain.
I noticed that in some patients, when their family visits they become different patients - more stoic or more defensive or less personal. Very small percentage but interesting to notice when it happens. All of a sudden they don't smile or open up as much.
