I have a request
For the last two days I have had the surreal experience of caring for the loved one of someone I know. I have been an ICU nurse for twelve plus years and while it was always my biggest fear it had never happened. Two days ago I arrived at work and was given my assignment. I was told this teenager was really sick and I had been chosen to care for her because they knew I would be really good with the family. While in the room to assist with a procedure already in progress the secretary told me I had a phone call. I asked her to take a message and she returned to tell me it had been another friend calling to tell me who she was. It has been a rough couple of days. This patient is just so sick so I am asking of anyone who reads this...Please take a minute and say a prayer for this patient and their family that all turns out well. Please. They really need it.
