I never walk in to the GI waiting room after cardioversion to talk to the family. For some reason today, I did. I spoke with the wife. As I turned to go, a lady sitting on the chair at the admitting desk smiled big and said, "Doctor! Do you remember me? I was the one who was all afraid. you did my case three years ago."
I saw the arm pressure garment and asked how she was.
"it went away but now it is back. In my liver. I have a biopsy today."
I gave her a big hug.
She said "I was hoping to see you. I am always so happy when I am with you."
