@KelseyMPH So. True story. I was an intubated, “unconscious”, ICU patient. And while I didn’t remember the exact words spoken to me while I was “unconscious”, I did (and still do) remember the intention and feeling behind words spoken to me. I was very scared and quite honesty delirious. /2
@KelseyMPH So when people were loud in the ICU, sometimes random words and feelings would send my (un)conscious to strange places and dreams. BUT when the people around me spoke with kindness and caring, the intentionality behind those words made me feel safe. /3
@KelseyMPH So, PLEASE keep doing what you are doing. Your presence and words help your patients feel safer, calmer, more secure, and quite homestly cares for. Even if they can’t thank you. I THANK YOU for them.

I wrote about my experience here:

@HeartLifeCanada @pumpinghearts @MarcBains @iamnickevans @ShelleyZieroth @dranulala @robmentz What about #CHD "Does this mean I was at risk when I was born?" ... "I could be at risk for HF, but how am I to manage my days is still missing ... " "It's nice that there are categories, but how do you translate that to people who need to process it?" /3
@HeartLifeCanada @pumpinghearts @MarcBains @iamnickevans @ShelleyZieroth @dranulala @robmentz "You can go back and forth between stages" ... at least HF and Advanced HF. The NYHA classes seem to recognize the transient nature..." Heart failure should remain heart failure, but clinics should be #FunctionNotFailure /4
