Three Weeks

A 3 week stint at a county hospital isn’t very long. Three weeks, with one day off per week, is 18 days of coming in every day.

But a lot can happen in 18 days. Three weeks is long enough for me to admit a patient, follow the patient for three weeks and watch the patient deteriorate right in front of my eyes.

The patient is not even 30. Young children at home. I doubt the patient will be alive in a week’s time.

Three weeks.
