On this day, 20 years ago #September11 , I was attending the CVICU Service @BSWHTemple_IMED .

It was a very busy service and I was pre-rounding.

While listening to a patient’s chest, she gasped.

I took my stethoscope out of my ears and looked at a face of a woman in shock🧵 …not #CardiogenicShock , but this shock.

I sat on her bed and we watched together…in shock

I don’t know how many more minutes it was, but I eventually turned back to her.

She hugged me harder than I’ve ever been hugged before or since.

We cried a few tears 2/
