104. At Least I Saved Her
I did chest compressions on a daughter’s mother while the girl stood at the head of the bed, pleading that I save her mother’s life.
I’ve had some form of medical training since I was 16, but using it so often in a hospital setting makes you less empathetic. I’m also a male nurse if it makes any difference. I didn’t expect to get the feels after such a critical moment in a family’s life.
The mother survived. I definitely broke most of the bones in her chest, though.
