Yesterday I sat in PACU (post-anesthesia care unit) doing pre-ops for a female colleague.
Jeff the nurse pulled a curtain for privacy by my ‘desk’, a bedside table and chair. I kept working, but I felt a cold chill.
It turned out an ESLD (end-stage liver disease) patient who had coded in the unit was coming down for a viewing by her family.
I felt it when she arrived. I peeked through the curtains just to see a dead body and I listened to the family as I did my work.

“Hi.” She said.
I said “Hi” back and noted, “You are happy.”
She said I was going to be happy, too. I asked her, “Do you see it? (my future)” She smiled, nodded yes, and said it was nice.
I caught myself and asked her if she’d seen ‘the lady in white’? I realized I should have helped.
She said yes and I could see her holding her left hand in Blessed Mother’s (BM) hand. The both leaned in to me, smiled, then turned and went away.
I still feel her joy.
