I was in awe of this family

Sitting with a family as they sat around the bed of their mom/wife/sister/grandmother/aunt. I was in awe of this family — all present and yet so scared, sad and angry. I could feel their love for my patient and yet so much stress in the room. I felt there is so much to be done and not enough time. I remember leaving after 8 hours, feeling very sad.
