Oftentimes, we find ourselves in extreme circumstances. As nurse leaders, we feel confident in taking charge of emergent situations. When we feel strongly about patient care, we can be quite assertive. Sometimes, we are humbled by the outcome. You are reading page 3 of Shockingly Humbled.

Singh is an extremely common Indian last name, so the last name (if they were even the same) wouldn't have been a giveaway. Further, it's fairly common in the culture of medicine and in Indian culture to keep work and personal life separate. It sounds from the story like this may have been meant to be a fairly minor surgery gone bad, so Dr. Singh might not have thought it worth it to tell the surgeon it was his mother, thus adding undue stress, or to tell anyone overall what his family was going through. Obviously just speculation, but I don't find this that far fetched.

Completely agree with this. I know of two Dr. Singh's in my town (and we're not huge) and have worked for Indian physicians, who have definitely been more private than some of the American physicians I've worked for.

Writing is a creative release for me as well. It often is expressed in poetry. You are an excellent writer! I was with you all the way, including the "GASP" at the end!

I very much enjoyed your style of writing. I felt as if I were there in the middle of the chaos. Well done. I'd love to hear more "stories. "

She made it out of the OR. When any of us asked Dr. Singh about her progress, he was polite, but vague, and just said that she was doing fine.

Great Story. Wonderful writing. You need to be an author in "chicken soup for the nurses' soul".
