NEW HAVEN, CT – It was supposed to be just a normal overnight shift at a prestigious Connecticut hospital when a hospital janitor found a stranger in scrubs, sobbing behind a bed in a room that needed cleaning.
The person, later identified as MICU fellow Cody Blue, was reportedly working when he received a call from his girlfriend.
“It was horrible!” said a witness who did not want to be identified. “Dr. Blue immediately turned green. He couldn’t stop crying while repeatedly saying, ‘Please, let’s not have a Goals of Care discussion! Please! How about a family meeting instead? We’ll have dinner with your parents this weekend!’”
A close friend who chose to remain anonymous said that the conversation was about him being together for 6 years and still not engaged.
“He does too many overnight calls. They barely saw each other,” he explained. When asked how Dr. Blue has been doing since, he said, “He’s ok… recovering. All his friends have been telling him that from now on he should only date people in Oncology. That way we can make sure the last thing he will be having is another Goals of Care discussion.”
Gomerblog attempted to reach Dr. Cody Blue, but he was on call and refused to comment.
