Not Guilty

On my last post, I speculated that Betty, the wife of one of my patients, Mr. G, might have been plotting to do him in. Now my friend, co-worker at the time, Jane Van De Velde, writes that Mr. G was admitted to the hospital because his hemoglobin was very low and he died there. “So it turns out Betty was blameless.”

For twenty years I thought of Betty as a scheming, conniving and murderous wife. How interesting to find out that my suspicions have been unfounded. Sorry to let this one go. But I do have another patient I believe might have had an untimely death.

I’ll tell you about him on my next post.

After a long career in nursing--I was one of the first certified gerontological nurse practitioners--I am now a writer. My writings center around patients I have had over the years that continue to haunt my memory unless I record their stories. In addition, I write about growing older, confronting ageism, creativity and food. My memoir, "Stories from the Tenth Floor Clinic: A Nurse Practitioner Remembers" is available where ever books are sold.
