I just lost my dad who was only just 60. It was an unexpected death. He caught the flu a week ago which developed into pneumonia. He suffered a horrible death in ICU. To worsen matters I was not here to see him. I was mid air flying home when he passed. Mum told me he suffered and fought not to go. I am so anxious now about returning to nursing. I envision seeing dad in every sick patient I nurse. The guilt of not being there for dad is immense. How do other nurses get over this? I am so upset.
