Patient CN XXX71307

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

As per routine, I stopped after surgery to note my patient’s case number, and what I saw left me … dumbstruck to say the least. Numbers I could never see without catching my breath, and yet there they were, clear as day.

What did mean? Nothing really. Or at least nothing that I have been made aware of.

All I know is that it will never be far from my thoughts.

As are my memories of Dad.

As is the void that still gapes.
