Your patients were truly blessed to have you caring for them. Everyone deserves to have compassion and comfort especially when fighting for their lives. Keep up the awesome work- :up:

[color=#cc0099]thank you for that beautiful story, it brought tears to my eyes. i'm still a student and have a lot to learn. i was also told not to become too emotionally attached to your patients, but i never agreed with this. they have families. they're mothers, fathers, etc. how can we not grieve their loss? this definitely gave me a lot to think about and i appreciate you sharing your story. :heartbeat
