It is amazing how fast life goes by and how quickly things change and people move on.
I’ve enjoyed teaching. I’ve loved being at Harding. I have become so very settled in Searcy. I love living here. I’m able to be involved in church again.
Things are good.
But, I miss my work.
I miss the ICU.
Every time I step away it calls to me. Calls me back.
And before I know it, I find myself in my blue skin again with a mask on my face and a bonnet on my head.
I find a severely ill pt lying in front of me. Fighting. Letting go. Lying somewhere in between.
I find myself having intently difficult conversations with families.
I find myself exhausted.
I find myself being used. I feel myself being used.
I feel God with me.
And so, this summer, I will transition from academia back to full time clinical practice in Dallas, Texas.
