one of my cute little patients passed away today. i don't usually post much about work or specific patients that i take care of, but as a nurse there are a select few patients that you take care of that touch your life and forever have an impact on you. this was one of those patients. he was an amazing little boy who fought such a hard battle with an amazing mom who was by his side almost every minute of every day doing whatever it took to make him have a better more comfortable life.
please take a minute to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. take time to tell those you love how important they are because life is so unexpected and can not be taken for granted.
goodbye, little man.
