What did Kate say to the intensive care doctor?

Put aside her own problems, Kate said, “They talk about feeling guilty about separated relatives and trying to explain to them why they couldn’t be there and why you often couldn’t come back to them.

“Just like someone on the other side of those phone calls, don’t feel guilty because we understand what to expect,” she said.

Dr. Down replied, “My heart goes out to you and all of human relatives were in intensive care.

“We’re not used to not having relatives by the bedside, and I think that added an extra dimension to you and any relatives who find it just awful.

“So my heart really goes to you.”
