Re: Palmer’s injury could be ‘career-ending’
Trying to be optomistic, sometimes MDs set the bar high, so that when a person exceeds the expectations, or are on a path to, they feel more confident and stick to rehab better, etc.
When my son was born, he was 7 weeks premature. They told us he woul dbe in the hospital 6-8 weeks. Talking with a nurse i found out that they always say your target release date (unless they feel it will be longer than that) is the original due date. That way, if you go home early you feel like your child is stronger than he/she should be. If you go home right at that time, its waht was expected and you dont worry too much.
My guy was home in 10 days, but I never told my then wife what the nurse told me. Her buy in to the "stronger than they thought" aspect was important to her nerves.
I dont know, just a thought.
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
