    I’ve never really been a person with strong

    faith. A little over a year ago, my Auntie went in cardiac arrest. I was extremely close to her. She was a second mother to me. So, anyway, we had to play the waiting game to find out the extent of the damage from the cardiac arrest. For the next three days, I didn’t sleep at...

    Letting Go

    As a Health Professional, I thought that I had a reasonably good handle on dealing with death and dying. Well with other people's death and dying anyway. It always affected me, as a human soul; how could it not? When it happened to my Mother, all bets were off. She'd had a...
