Re: Thanks

Thank you so much for writing a comment. I feel privileged to receive it.

I can't begin to imagine the distress the entire staff of nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, social workers, housekeepers, physicians, administrators and all others must be feeling. Your's is a wonderful institution, and I wish I could come and personally shake everyone's hand or offer them a hug. Be clear in understanding that the pediatric critical care community understands a bit of what you are going through, and is feeling your pain. What the media does not understand is that your distress is being felt on behalf of the family, and out of concern for what is being done or being proposed to be done to the body of this child who has already passed on. As critical care providers, or as providers in any area of pediatrics, we always treat the entire family. We are compassionate to the point of feeling our little one's pains and worrying with their parents over their survival and future outcomes. You are not cold and heartless. You are doing your best. Keep on doing it, for that is the way to show the world that your critics are wrong.

Please let your co-workers know that you all are not alone out there. We know that this could have happened anywhere in any of our units. Don't give up, and don't stop caring.
