    The husband should have called 911 and had her arrested and the boy assessed by EMS. You can have her charged with assault, and if she smiled charged with lewd behavior

    "hello, I would like to report a nurse, she assualted my son with a cotton ball!"
    "assualted? how so?"

    Talk about uptight. Board of nursing for having the audacity to making a kids day a little better?

    To answer your question..no you aren't crazy. However you are definitely overreacting. I literally laughed out loud while reading your post. Loosen up a little...or a lot

    I think for the safety of children everywhere the OP must publish this nurses name address and recent photo so we can all protect our own children. You may not have been able to save your child, but you can help us save ours
