40 Silent Sermons: GirlMic/Leslie’s Last Days (6)

We start our day listening to shift change reports as the nurses discus the high and lows of B/P and Lab values. I speak to her as I wipe her face and touch her lips with water. She has no smile and her eyes open when I call her name. The doctors tell me of her need to start new medications for the  abnormal reports. By the end of the shift, four doctors have been in and they discuss her heart, kidneys, lungs, and leg  ulcer and the diagnosis “Flash Pulmonary Edema.”
