"...this poor little scrap..."
Today, we heard a highly emotional conversation between Steve and Judy, a doctor at the Royal Berks and a hospital chaplain. 30 years on, Steve was still hugely upset to recall the time he was caring for a tiny baby who was dying. He felt that they should stop any more medical interference and simply allow the young parents to hold their child - 'this poor little scrap', as he put it - until the inevitable end.
He said the hardest thing was walking away and getting on with the rest of the day's work. He was sure he couldn't have gotten through it without the help and support of the hospital chaplain. Do have a listen. There are lots of wonderful stories and snippets of valuable conversations on the Listening Project website. Congratulations to all those who've put it together.
Ohh - and Happy Easter!
