    I am so touched with this story. I am not a licensed nurse yet, still working on to pass nclex but this kinda reminds me of my clinical experience in MICU when my pt was called on code. It was a chaos. My first time to see a person died in front of me.

    kudos's and accolades to you and anyone else who works in peds this is a field i could never handle. i'll stick with geriatrics, i will always remember fondly the nurses that were there for the nightmare of my child's death and i hope they shine their halo's daily. because they deserve them.

    Thanks for sharing your story. The beauty of nursing is that every facet of the population is served. It looks as though you have found your niche. I'm better suited for the adult population and my sister, also an RN, serves women's services/Nursery well. Sounds like you will have a blond cherub looking over your shoulder. :angel2:

    Thanks for all you do for families. Stay strong.

    wonderfully written! god bless you for having the courage and ability to work in pediatrics...and then the ability to share such a sad story. the loss of a child is the most crippling kind of loss. having lost a child, i could never work peds and am thankful for those who can.

    WOW! you are very brave... that experience is really hard to forget.
    That little boy is very fortunate to have you taking care of him and to give support to his parents... he will forever be alive in your heart.

    Thank you. I just have tears streaming down my face. Probably part of it is the fact that I've got a 5 year old boy. But thank you for being there. I've worked Peds, but general floors, not PICU/NICU, because I knew I couldn't handle it. Bless you.
