My patient died last night, 59 years old, he just got to CTICU from the OR,, post CABG, and everything was going along fine, then 40 mins later, he crashed, went back to the OR and died there. The family was in shock, so was I, it was all going so well.... This afternoon, I was sad and cried, I still feel bad, very down. I can only imagine what the wife is going through.
I'm torn about looking for his obituary in the paper tomorrow, I want to know a little more about him, (as I only knew him for 40 mins,), and I guess I want to know what kind of a man he was. I just don't want to get sad all ove again.
