    That's such a beautiful, sad story. One of my biggest fears about working on peds too. You obviously are the best kind of nurse, the one who genuinely cares, and I'd be glad to have you taking care of any of my kids.

    All I can say after reading this is THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU for being able to share this story and to have the emotional strength to do this job. I know that I have such a horrible time keeping my own emotions in check when it comes to the deaths of these precious children that I most likely could never do the job that you do. I thank God daily for nurses like you.
