Not long after I started nursing, I befriended an elderly patient on our ward. I rarely looked after him, but seeing he didn’t often have visitors, I’d often pop in and chat with him during his 8 or so week stay with us.
He was a country man but would visit when in the city and became a dear family friend for nearly a decade until he passed in 2012.
He even left me something very generous in his will. Shocked and soooo appreciative for that, I’ll never forget him.
To think just spending some time with someone would leave such a mark on my heart and life (and obvious his too)! – Tanya ♥
