When my first wife was battling cancer and in the hospital, she went into cardiac arrest late one night.

When my first wife was battling cancer and in the hospital, she went into cardiac arrest late one night. The hospital revived her and moved her to ICU. It was 3 am before she was stable and I could go in to see her. Dr. Kuebker was already there, fresh as a daisy, talking to her at 3 am! After everything settled down, I was trying to get some sleep in a lounge. Dr. Kuebker came and found me and we talked about my wife, her prognosis, not good, and me. He could have gone home, #$&, he could have stayed home and done it all by phone, but he came in to check on my wife and on me. That is more than professionalism, that is compassion.
