Lessons I've learned along the way #3
Limit your questions. And weigh you questions.
Too many questions at once can be overwhelming. Don't be overwhelming.
Starting questions with "Why didn't the doctors do this...?" is also not such a great idea. Try to have great ideas.
One of the best ways to inquire about a situation such as this is to simply ask for an update, or say "How is so-and-so doing?"
This gives the person the space to answer as they feel comfortable. And comfortably is a nice way to answer questions.
