I had a lady from our church say, “Well, I guess I should let you go as you read a scripture to me so I guess you need to go.” I had already been there almost an hour. It is a bit different when you are going to see just one patient rather than having a number of patients to see in the hospital but even after an hour I felt like I was rushing her processing. She was lonely and has no family. I tend to stay too long though sometimes and I knew that she needed rest. It is difficult to balance the prescription and what the patient needs physically with what the patient may perceive to desire spiritually. I am still learning that balance. Deanna
