And my heart sinks.......

I probably just made some lady's day really bad..... I was confirming appointments for tomorrow.. and a patients wife just called back to let me know he passed away in January.... which lead her to break down in tears on the phone! I feel horrible. I apologized for her loss, but I still can't help but feel guilty that I called and she had a break down.

** she just called back to apologize for crying, and I told not to be sorry, that I understood. **


  1. That has happened to me a few times. Ugh. Not much worse :( poor thing.

  2. It wasn't your fault. You handled it right.

  3. oh goodness -- i would have cried right along with her. but you weren't at fault, and you were so kind to talk with her.

    so sad!

  4. Bless her lil heart! That is just so very sad. And for you too. Awwww...I hope your day gets brighter.

  5. oh no :( that is so sad but you didn't know hun.
    i hope your afternoon is better.
