I think I might have wrote about this before, but I thought I would add this in again since it fits here. At the nursing facility I work for now, I have only had one encounter and it just seems that it happens to tie in with this topic. I had one patient that seemed to be deeply cared for me as I did for her. I had injured my back and told Dorothy I had to leave immediatly and Tracey would be taking over. As Dorothy could never call me Julie, always Julia, she said, "Julia please don't leave me." I told her not to worry I would be back soon. Little did I know, my back was a little more serious and I couldn't return for a little over a week. Returning to work was a bad judgement call too. Too my amazement, Dororthy had passed in that little time span, that took me by surprise, when I left she was had no ailment signs. Now Dorothy had one of our Suites in the nursing facility a private room to herself, it had now been occupied to another patient, as our rooms filled up quickly. As I was walking down the hall that morning, making my morning rounds, I heard Dorothy call out, "Julia help me." I was just about to enter the suite, when I realized, Judy now occupied the suite. I turned to my co-worker down the hall and asked Tracey, did you hear that, she was about 30 feet away from me. She said what? I told her, she said no, but had every hair standing up on her arm. To this day I have no doubt that was Dorothy's voice calling out to me, I couldn't help but say I'm sorry for not being there when she passed. I wish I would have been there. Julie
