"Given your presentation at Critical Care in Respirtory Distress, and the history of your injury, I am not convinced that you would have survived another night at home."
There are five infectious disease doctors trying to figure this all out. I have two chest tubes and had surgery to clean out the whatever. I asked, is this life-threatening? Doctor said, "It was. I think we've got it."
Now I am looking out my window at this Italian Gothic building, the only piece of the original 1874 Maine General Hospital left standing.
I have so much to be thankful for.
