Thank You to a Family Grieving
I am listening to a helicopter on the roof of the hospital. Someone's else's child is in danger and I feel for them whether that child is coming for emergency treatment or is waiting for organs to be delivered. We, the Hess family are so very grateful to the family who allowed the donation of their family member's organs. I also want to thank the surgical team, who literally worked around the clock to save Iain's life on Tuesday through Wednesday morning and the incredibly caring and proficient nurses and doctors who have continued with that life saving care.
Iain is more aware of his discomfort and all the chest tubes, leads and other tubes coming out of him, but tonight I got glimmers that he is beginning to initiate requests to be suctioned and so clear his lungs. This is a step forward, instead of merely being a passive recipient of care.
