Medicine is

Medicine is a friend touching your hand in the hospital, a doctor kindly telling you it is OK to say good-bye to your husband, another doctor saying people only die because I do not know enough to keep them alive. Medical care is saying we bankrupt our families on last two weeks over-care which is futile. Medical care is comfort care and going down fighting and raging against the darkness coming. Health care is all these things and more, and they are all legitimate. How can we see this larger? What is the picture of the whole that will carry us toward healing? Maybe we can never reach healing, but we can reach out.
