Being mortals who will eventually get old and die someday, it’s kind of necessary to be bounded by a medical team sooner or later. Unfortunately, some people have accidents, deadly and incurable diseases which lead them to lose their life at a young age. Our hearts and condolences go out to their families and, of course, to the doctors who stood by their side in their final hours.
In order to celebrate the undying bond of kindness and sympathy for a patient by a doctor or a loved one by their family members, here are several tweets that tell tales about the emotional incidents shared by doctors and survivors.
1. People would say it’s a coincidence but sometimes things happen for a greater reason that we can’t contemplate.
Paper birds on walls mean new beginnings and growth, so this is symbolic of the patient’s death.
You were 35 with metastatic colon cancer. I was a new attending. Every day for 2 weeks we made origami cranes during bedside rounds. I left for vacation in Chile and 3 days in found a wall covered in paper birds. An email told me you died that morning. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet pic.twitter.com/255yIT5DE0

2. Miracles do exist sometimes.
We hope you’re fit and fine now B.
When I first met B, he’d been dead for 20 min.
We got him back, inexplicably.
He calls me every year on the anniversary. 10 years now.#ShareAStoryInOneTweet

3. This is a serious case to survive.
Anyone living through that fatal accident will, of course, be grateful to their doctors.
You were shot in the abdomen while holding your infant daughter. I repaired your stomach and liver and removed your kidney & part of your pancreas. It’s been 10 years. You still send me a Christmas card every year. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

4. To listen is also a medicine of its own kind that heals.
They both look so content and happy.
You trusted a 28 year old #raredisease patient who did her own research & wanted to repurpose a chemo drug to save her life. You sat down, listened to the data & RWE, said “let’s do it” and gave me my life back. I’m a lawyer now. Thank you Dr. Ahn ❤️#ShareAStoryInOneTweet pic.twitter.com/BCqrNbcoOV
