The Most Beautiful Curls I'd Ever Seen

You were beautiful when you arrived in my PICU, despite the fact that you were so ill. All of 5 years old, scared to death, pale as could be. You had the most beautiful blond curls I'd ever seen on a little boy.

Yikes kessadawn. I knew this was going to be a hard story to read, but I didn't expect it to bring tears to my eyes. Beautifully well written, you captured all of the emotion and desperate attempts to bring this little boy back to life. I felt as though I was was in the room with you.

Your patients are very fortunate to have such a caring nurse. Thank you for sharing this experience.
