Nov 19, '01I emailed the author also. I hope she gets a tremendous response from our fellow nurses and the public. I also sent the pages to my coworkers who are on email.

Nov 20, '01hi all me again. i sent ms. webster an email and made her aware of this thread. she rapidly responded by sending me another email requesting that i say for her:
