    This patient who in the recent past has affected my life most profoundly never actually took a breath on this planet.
    Thank you Elvish - got me crying this morning. In a good way though.

    Sometimes I am so grateful God made me a nurse and gave me these feelings (other times I am not so grateful!) But I would hate to have a nurse who could not be touched by a time such as this, wouldn't you?

    That was an awesome story and just reinforces the love all good nurses have to give to their patients. When you get a lesson back out of it it is better then getting paid.

    Thank you for sharing this amazing story.. God is watching over us all, and especially in this situation, people tend to forget that we are human and we all have a heart somewhere! Indeed these parents were touched by an angel.:heartbeat

    ohhhh i rarely get on this site and this is the second article ive read with tears rolling down my face - ive been there a few times personally same as A and this story is sooooo sad but beautiful at the same time.

    im a student nurse in the uk and i think the NHS here would find it hard to find many of their staff that seem so genuinely caring and emotionally affected by the people they care for like you nurses in america. doesnt say much about the care over here mind you - but any one who can share a story like that deserves the title of being an angel

    i believe we go onto a better place and believe that little boy is smiling down at you for giving him and his parents the care you did

    I was reviewing different posts that I had responded to and this one in particular touched my heart the first time and again the second time. Since this post, I experienced the loss of my granddaughter who was 7 months old. The down side is that both my daughter and her husband were terribly hurt by the loss and have since split up. It is sad that anyone has to experience the loss of a baby. Your story still to this day touches my heart in more ways than you know. Thank you again for sharing it. God Bless You.
