Thankyou , Kate, for sharing such deep emotions with the readership. I read this at the end of a day at work in General Practice, and am moved. It is a salutary tale for all of us at the action end of Medicine. Deepest sympathies and best wishes for your return to the UK.
Very moving Kate. I cant even imagine the horror. Kia Kaha and good luck in the UK.
Oh Kate. I am so sorry this happened to you, your family, and to your lovely Richard. The pressures on doctors to be always perfect are huge, the supports when it is suspected we my not be can be lacking. So very sorry, and wishing all strength and more happiness in the new future
