What I signed up for.

"I'm glad you came back."

"You are?"

"Yeah, I am. 'Cause when you was here earlier, I felt kind of like you was rushing me. Like you needed to hurry on up."

"You did? Oh shoot. I'm so sorry. Ugggh. I'm sorry, ma'am."

"It's okay, Dr. Manning." 

"No, it's not." 

"You know what? You right. It's not really okay. It's not. 'Cause, for me, I'm the only patient you got. I mean, when it's my turn."

I looked into my patient's eyes when she said that to let her know I was hearing her. Then she smiled and spoke again.

"But I do accept your apology, Dr. Manning. And I'm glad you came back, okay?"

You know what? I'm glad I did, too.

Happy Friday.


  1. Peace, Sister Doctor.
    Short and sweet.

  2. Sometimes we need a reminder, everyone gets distracted. So glad she felt comfortable enough to express herself.
