Re: Thank you

Thanks so much for your kind comments about my post, and your heartfelt support of the health-care team involved in this tragedy. Good works and daily "miracles" occur in all of our ICUs, but they are not always deemed newsworthy. In today's society with rapid sharing of situations through social media we all have to watch out for how rapidly the message can become distorted. Twenty-eitght years ago, when you were just starting in the PICU, this story would have had limited circulation, and we would not all have the opportunity (or obligation) to weigh in. I think overall its better THIS way. And maybe we can expand the discussion of EOL issues in such a way that the general public, law makers and legislators can understand. Thank you for your years of service at the bediside, or whatever role you may currently have in healthcare.
