The importance of community
Two weeks ago my dad passed out and was brought to the hospital. He had internal bleeding and when I got the message they didn’t know what was wrong. All they knew was he had lost a lot of blood.
By the time I got to the hospital they had a better idea that it was likely an ulcer caused by ibuprofen. There was still a lot of uncertainty, but it turned out to be correct and he got the medicine and blood transfusion he needed and is doing much better.
The doctors and nurses saved his life. My family and community of coworkers and friends enabled me to drop everything and be with him. I hope you have a similar network of support to help you focus on the important things when the time comes.
