Abstract

If Meril was scared then she had a gift for feigned serenity. Her admission seemed routine to her, and so I tried to act the same. I was a green third year medical student who was quick to share a patient's confidence. It was easy, then, to take Meril's recovery for granted and so she became another temporary patient on my list. But Meril's recovery was not routine, and her confidence and calm cracked as she got sicker. I took this opportunity to connect with her and Meril showed me what there is to gain in doing so.
