I agree with your comment, @pamressler. There are times that a discussion has been started and it did not go in favorable way and Colleen always reminds me that this is OK. Not every patient experience can be positive and sometimes things do go wrong. This is a reality in life and of course in the practice of medicine as well.

Scott, I also appreciate your vulnerability in being able to speak of your many losses with such honesty. Your story is an exceptional one from which I've learned a lot. I am sure it will help others to understand the demands and the losses associated with caregiving. It also helps me to understand the rewards of such a commitment. I understand now why you often close your posts with the words, "Strength, Courage and Peace." You have lived those words.
I love your story, Scott. I have no doubt that your efforts as caregiver were much more than "good enough" and I'm sure that your wife felt the same.
