a moment

I was in the hall when the call sounded -Code Blue G70 -30. For the merest of seconds I paused, Dan's water pitcher clutched in my hand. For the merest of seconds my eyes met the eyes of the 20 something woman coming down the hall toward me, pushing an IV pole and holding the hand of her bald husband. That nanosecond is frozen in my mind. A bustle of white went by us, quietly controlled- no fuss, no muss. I turned and saw the elderly man across the hall, suspended for a moment before entering the room of his wife.

For the briefest of moments the three of us were one entity

Then, as one, we moved on..... back to our own worlds.... to our own battles....
