  1. You have every right to be angry! You guys have been through more than anyone should ever have to go through and it’s not fair. All I can offer are prayers. But let yourself get angry when you feel it.

  2. A nurse should NEVER tell a patient (child or adult) not to cry. Crying when something hurts is normal, acceptable, appropriate. Crying when life is exhausting and frightening is also normal, acceptable and appropriate. I’m sorry Ana (and you) had that experience.

  3. Can’t fathom why Ana & your family and all patients can’t be treated with kindness and humane understanding. What you described isn’t even about money on their part, it’s about considerations that medical professionals should always think about – how long the family has traveled to be there (in all ways), what it’s like to go through these procedures again and again, etc. I might have punched that nurse – not really, but close…

  4. I’m sorry you had a cascade day; one of those days where the first thing that goes wrong opens the floodgates and every single thing that goes wrong or is irritating or an inconvenience after makes you want to stab someone repeatedly, except there is nothing to stab. If one of those serene yoga-meditation types came along and told you to take a cleansing breath, I suppose that would provide a target; at least mentally.

    Alas. I hope decent sleep followed and the morning brings some measure of balance back!
