Pediatric patients intimidate me. It's amazing how a little person who looks at you with huge, unsuspecting eyes can steal your heart and scare the dickens out of you in the same second. So imagine pediatric patients who are dying. No, don't! It's actually a horrible thought...but it happens. And they have to be cared for just like big people who are dying.
