One reason why I love my job!

"Thank You" card from my patient

After a long on call night at the hospital, delivering a baby that died inside his mother’s womb, diagnosing a patient with advanced stage cancer and metastasis to the vagina, I arrive at my office in my scrubs (I usually like to wear a suite to my office), tired and with red eyes after two hours of sleep.

My first patient of the day gave me a grateful hug, a “Thank You” card, and a thoughtful gift. That made all the difference and reminded me why I love doing what I do.

  3. I agree. It doesn’t happen too frequently in a world that tends to take everything for granted, but when it does, it’s such a wonderful thing.
