i don't usually start threads like this, but i feel this deserves some attention.
i correspond via personal email on a regular basis with one of our members, jailrn. she emailed me a couple of weeks ago that her 2 sons, ages 19 and 8, had been in a car accident. her older son was hurt pretty badly, but seemed to be showing progress in rehab, learning to do everything all over again.
i received an email from her this morning. her son died on friday, october 18. on his 20th birthday.
on top of all of this, her husband has been in poor health.
i'm deeply stricken by this. i posted this in hopes that some of you that knew her could pm her, and we could show her that we care. i cannot imagine what she's going through, but i do know that it would take every effort to keep going.
i did not get her "permission" to post this. i was torn as to whether or not i should post it, whether or not i would want it posted. i only hope that she understands that people care about her, and that's what we're here for. the good and the bad, to rally behind her.
my thoughts are with you sharon.

i would be willing to arrange the purchase and delivery of the arrangement and have it come from the allnurses.com community.
