You would suppose that being doctors we hold some of the answers to the most puzzling questions about life and death. Most of the time that is not true.
Of course, we can probably offer theories and technical explanations as to what happens when a chronic illness snuffs life out of what used to be a vibrant person.
Deep inside though, a gnawing "WHY?" keeps on haunting us. I felt the same when I read Nurse May's post a while ago. May is a Filipino nurse working in the US. I have long admired the passion she puts in her writing. I invite you to read her moving post, and feel the gnawing frustration that haunts both nurses and doctors.
