    It's so so so amazing. I can feel the event. And I can barely grab myself out from your somewhat meloncholic story. Very powerful!

    Abeautiful story YOU are a nurse They will ALWAYS remember you You gave comfort during the worst time of their lives I am an old nurse, glad to know there are new nurses out there like you. We carry these "war wounds" with us to each new patient. Hurts but makes us better. You could not have done anymore than you did, thank goodness he made it out of the ER to you Be Proud

    I am sitting here crying like a baby and so hoping to never have to experience what you have, but as a Peds nurse who is still new at this - I know I might.

    Can tears short a keyboard? Geez...

    Blessings of the Lord

    Your care and love for these children is a true blessing, I to would cry when it came to children/adults that left too early and the hardest thing about being a nurse , is being there watching someone die and to try and comfort a grieiving family when you also are grieving Very touching story, thank you for sharing it
