Prayers and thoughts for this family Please....

  1. I found out today that a young man that used to be in our Nursing class(he failed out, but was reapplying) had a four wheeler accident on Thursday. He broke his neck in three places and will definitely be paralyzed from the waist done, but are not sure about everything else....they think it will be from the nipple area down. He was such an energetic sweet boy and this is so sad for him and his family. He wasn't even 21 yet so please send thoughts and prayers for his family.

    I know....a couple of weeks ago a nursing student died. She wasn't in my class, but Nurs2be was in class with her and it was hard on alot of the students. She said at the time that it really puts things into perspective. I think he would have been a wondeful asset and it's so sad....

    Ms Flower is wonderful...I am so glad I picked her for my first clinical instructor...with all of my trials and tribulations this semester she has been really good to me. Ms Bates has also been wondeful to me. How are you doing with the situation? How are your classmates? Take care....

    We are ok.. All the pictures of her around the school make it a lil depressing though... One of my friends had a dream about her the other night... And of course we still see her empty seat everyday... But we will make it..
