As patients we are focused on our immediate needs and ourselves.

Though focus is required to function in a world that evolves quickly for us, we do need to take into account the time and dedication of the clinicians, caregivers, nurses and ancillary staff.

When life beats us down, our normal tendency is to fight back, and in acute cases that may be required to survive. Despite our dire situation, paying gratitude for everything around us, and the help that is provided to us does pay dividends.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on the generosity of others, and be thankful for all the efforts put forward towards our survival.

When there is darkness, let’s be the first to shine a light.
