How long have I got left?

No comments

A beautifully written piece regarding the amazingly brave and young neurosurgeon who grappled with his own mortality from the perspective of the physician as well as the patient.  A truly excellent read.

When great souls leave this earth, we mourn.

My condolences go out to his family, friends, patients, and everyone’s lives he touched.  When faced with our own mortality, would we change any aspect of our lives?
