A Wedding in a Hospital

Stories about weddings conducted in hospitals are not rare; typically, however, they involve terminally ill patients.  This one is different because the bride is a pediatric neurosurgeon who wanted to include her patients in the ceremony.
At the reception near the tiny hospital chapel where the vows were spoken, the couple greeted small patients, some hitched to monitors... "They are like my own kids," Bragg said. "My goal is to make kids happy and healthy and to help them live the lives they were meant to live. This is exactly what I wanted. They are a part of my life, and they are a part of my happiness. That's what today was all about."

The rest of the story is at the Wisconsin State Journal.

"They are a part of my life, and they are a part of my happiness."

The AMA frowns on such deep involvement. Bad for the doctor's emotional health, and bad for the patients well being.
