13. Doctors have weak points too.
But thanks to her patient for keeping her in the loop.
As a med student, I was the only one in labor & delivery who spoke Spanish. I had to translate to a young couple that their full term baby was stillborn. I almost quit #medicine that day. 2 yrs later, she came back, pregnant, and made sure I knew it. ❤️ #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

15. Love can happen anywhere.
Even in the least expected places.
You came to me in dire straits and multisystem organ failure. A year later we celebrated your marriage to the woman who gave you chest compressions and a second chance at life. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet pic.twitter.com/5DoG8Gv1Di

16. Being normal is the only way to be normal.
Bottling up emotions will only wreck a person of any profession.
The first time my patient died, I felt the loss deeply. Everyone told me to toughen up, and grow a thicker skin. I followed that advice and lost myself. Now I teach that we do not have to lose our humanity to become healers; we need to embrace it. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet
