Andrea's Story

Updated: Feb 27

Here's a story I'll never forget...

A photo of a journal and a pen.

I was working in the ICU and caring for a young woman with Guillain-Barre syndrome. The young woman was the mother of two and ended up needing a ventilator to breathe. Because she couldn’t move her extremities, I laid the babies on their mother’s chest. Then I picked up her arms to wrap around them.

There were tears coming down her face, and I knew how much it meant for her to hold them.

It was a beautiful moment for both of us.
