So I read your moms book, front to back, and let me tell ya, I cried every other page! Knowing what you and I know now, and reading what Nate went through, I LITERALLY have no idea how he made it, other than the power of prayer, that was DEFINATELY his saving grace!!! Everyone truly did storm the gates of heaven and begged for God’s mercy on that boy. And that is truly the meaning of what family and friends are for. To even see strangers come together was an astounding act of divine intervention. I have such a huge appreciation for your mother and her courage to write this book, it has changed my perspective on emergency nursing and how I need to step back just a little bit more and really try to understand the family and where they come from. We as nurses get so jaded and robotic with what we are doing that our feelings towards the family get cut out of the picture. And at the end of the day, that matters just as much as the patients care. Thank you so much for opening my eyes just a little bit wider!
