I am a dietitian. In the grand scheme of things, I am rarely one of the key players in a patients overall care. So was the case Thursday afternoon, when for over an hour I listened as a family and the more case-pertinent medical professionals had this conversation.
Doctor: Well, we can do A or B for your dad.
Family: A's not working.
Doctor: Agreed, so we should proceed with B.
Family: We don't like B, what are our other options.
This, in addition to the prepping for the meeting & discussing the outcome with my boss, made it impossible to leave early and in fact, necessitated me going in on my day off to catch up. Thus, I would have gotten to Borders just in time to see the Harlet wave goodbye on her way out of the parking lot.
Halifax, Nova Scotia is only 12 hours away...
