    I can't even imagine the terror you must've felt to find out the pt was positive. A friend of mine just got stuck also. This is very frightening and it could be any of us, regardless of all the precautions we take. People don't seem to realize what we put on the line to be healthcare workers. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You must remember to think good thoughts and focus yourself. Please let us know how it goes.
    May God be with you....
