I am so tired that I did not think I could even write this haiku.
But here we are. I pushed through.
As my patients sobbed into tear stained masks, as they howled their agony and loss, as they gasped in pain, as they inhaled deep breaths of sorrow, as they wandered for the Covid tests they could not find, as they searched for answers I could not provide, as they waited for the unknown… 😷
I sat. I listened. I tried. I cried.
Because at the end of the day, at the end of the week, at the end of the year, there is only so much we can do.
If you’re going through a tough time now, either battling Covid, caring for family with Covid, or you’re a fellow healthcare worker family who’s so burnt out from COVID… I am with you. The exhaustion and depletion is real. 😮💨
Let’s grieve together.

“… The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:5-7 NIV
