Stories about end of life situations I encountered during a 32 year practice in Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine. I try to point out the ethical issues, stresses, successes and failures. There are literature citations but this is a personal, hopefully educational exercise. Please comment!

a poem by Jeffrey Harrison
The maple limb severed by a December storm still blossoms in May where it lies on the ground,
its red tassels a message from the other side, like a letter arriving after its writer has died.
