Today is the 1 yr anniversary of my one & only code blue on a patient that I was caring for - she died. She was only 40 yrs old. I still read the guest book that the funeral home has online for her friends & family. I don't know why I do it, I just do it. The whole experience has definitely touched me, although it's never led me to cry. I don't know why I don't cry about it, I don't know why I still think about that night, I don't know why I still read what her friends & family write to her - I just do it & probably will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
I wasn't able to sleep last night. In fact, I didn't go to bed until after 6 am. I guess this will be something that always stays with me.
