Patient came in on a cardiac alert. Massive MI, cored twice, once in the field, once in the ER...sent him to the cath lab and now he's with us. Cath lab guys roll him over to us, and he's crackin Monty Python jokes, talks about how great it is to be alive. Positively *giggling*. Says how lucky he is, how thankful he is to the paramedics and the nurses and docs downstairs, to cath lab, to us. Can't believe how good it is to be alive, where are his children? Can he see his wife soon?
I love that.
Some days? People are .....good. There's good reason to help them get well.
