Every hug was a victory dance… A goodbye story
I am an oncology nurse. Saying goodbye and grief comes with the job. However, no matter how accustomed I am to this, it is never easy. And no matter how experienced I get with this there are patients who will always leave such a mark on my life that saying goodbye to them will be like losing a part of myself. Today, I said goodbye to one of those patients. **details have been changed and left out to respect the identity of this patient** I first met this patient last summer.
