sometimes things are not ok
The thing is they aren't always OK.
A couple of hours into the visit things change and they go from talking to unresponsive. Now they are dying. Sometimes things happen that fast.
That person who was talking to their son an hour is now going to die. There is nothing anyone can do. Somestimes things are out of our hands even in this world of sophisticated treatments and machinery. They are useless.
This person will die today. They didn't know this was their day to die. A series of events happened to bring them to this. No one expected this to happen today. Certainly, not me, their nurse who greeted them when they arrived by ambulance. Certainly not their son who arrived to be with them. You just never know.
