My life is forever changed but because of one nurse's unbelievable kindness, I am able to face the days ahead knowing he did not die alone. There is empathy still.

After 6 weeks of enduring surgery, 4 hospital stays, 2 SNF, and finally a COVID stay, my dad passed away. Taylor, his amazing nurse was with him when he passed. I am sad. Angry. But I am hopeful for the future because we are being cared for by nurses who risk everything during this pandemic. The nurses and doctors around us, all of those in healthcare on the front lines are my heroes. My life is forever changed but because of one nurse's unbelievable kindness, I am able to face the days ahead knowing he did not die alone. There is empathy still. I thanked Taylor, but for what she demonstrated today, I will never be able to thank her enough. My family is truly grateful.
