Sad News

I just got word that a patient I cared for frequently in my capstone passed away last week. He was 12 years old.

He had been on the floor during my entire rotation, fighting graft-versus-host disease, a complication of the bone marrow transplant they gave him. He had actually seemed to be coming around, so I was a little shocked to hear the news.

My preceptor was his nurse for the last few days of his life. All three of us had really bonded. He was our “grumpy old man” with a very kind heart.

I will miss him.
