The eyes

There is nothing as amazing to me as the eyes of someone that is vented- where you know that the person is there- ready to enter back into life and take over their own breathing. There are some patients that just grab you with their eyes, pulling you closer and asking the hardest question of all-why?
Those patients are the ones that I take with me when I leave. I have never been a person that things about prayer as a way, often resorting to the COTHism of jingles. For these patients, the ones that stay in my vision, these are the ones that I think about during my days off.
I think that being able to be an active part in these patients lives will be one of the best parts of being a PA....
