The Saga Continues
This morning I visited Bernie and Mary, my matchmaking family. I had no sooner sat down than Mary made the comment, "So you found out there were restrictions." I filled her in on my meeting with the Ethics Committee. I tried to frame it in such a way so that she knew that this was also my choice not to blend my personal and professional worlds. Mary was still a little bummed and pointed out how our families knew each other. However, I only know Bernie and Mary because Bernie is my hospice patient so it's still not a loophole. Apparently I made a big impression with Tom though. Mary told me that he's willing to wait, which is very unlike him. Chivalrous, eh? I told Mary that I liked her and Bernie too much so I'm hoping he sticks around for quite a while longer. I'm certainly not putting my dating life before my patient's life! I can't blame Mary for rooting for me to get together with her grandson in the end. It's misguided but sweet.
