I’m going to do my best to help him get over this infection and move on. ” When I heard this doctor’s words, I thought to myself,“Loves life to much to give up …” Maybe it was I who was giving up all this time! Maybe, by trying to be what I thought was G’s advocate, I was misinterpreting what I thought his quality of life ought to be! Then I closed my eyes and pictured G in a nursing home, in a wheelchair, with an ostomy, and with a leg without a foot. But he was wheeling around, wearing a funny hat, doing Bob Hope impersonations, telling funny stories, and making others laugh.
Piled neatly on his head were a few thin, gray strands of brittle hair, complementing his long, salt-and-pepper handlebar mustache. He had clear blue eyes, with just a hint of green, but behind those eyes I could tell was a lot of hidden pain. Not just G’s physical pain, the reason he was in the intensive care unit (ICU), but there was emotional pain as well. I sensed that G had a story to tell, but I knew that I had to meet his immediate needs now. You see, G came to me from post-anesthesia recovery, sedated and on a ventilator after having undergone an elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
J’s goals for the week were to get her hair done as usual and to keep living her life. On my next visit, J told me she had spoken with her children. We discussed what she wanted to achieve during their visits. She told me about the two children who were coming first. She shared stories about their childhoods, and she shared that she was not sure how to talk to them now. I told her she should share with them the same stories she had told me and tell them what each one meant to her. I also suggested she use the hospice social worker to mediate if she thought she needed the support.
