4 The Love Of Animals
AUGUST 1, 2011
Hospice Tails is a series of true stories about my experiences with pets and patients as a hospice social worker. After talking to Barb’s family, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that they were anticipating her passing with a sense of weary relief, so I was surprised when the hospice nurse called me on the day of Barb’s death and asked me to come out to the home quickly. Then I noticed that several family members were also nursing bleeding wounds.
