    You not only a nurse that I would work with very happily, but also one that I would be honored to have take care on anyone I know. My brother passed away from cancer last year and we were very blessed to be there when he passed and also blessed to have great nurse take care of him. Thank you for your story. I wholeheartedly agree that Everyone was/is somebody's baby.

    A couple of thoughts - you wrote a sensitive, insightful piece.

    Your jaded classmate might have been blustering to cover her fear.
    Things aren't always what they appear to be.

    I didn't know organs could be donated by drug abusers. What about passing on diseases that drug abusers are prone to?

    The pt might not have been the one to donate. It might have been his family who did that.

    I do appreciate your article and may God bless you.
