James, I am a Transwoman and a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse

I’m so sorry this happened to you and I have seen this happen to others. I am working with other LGBT Hospice Nurses to improve end of life care for the LGBTQ community. I would love to talk with you someday. Thank you for sharing your very personal story and Lenny is so blessed you were his husband and shame on that doctor for not addressing you as anything less than that.
