Memories of my boy Brandon

Sunday, December 14, 2008 at 11:17 AM

This is a youtube video my friend Cori sent to me. Her son  Brandon  is part of the video.He was diagnosed with leukemia when he was just a year old.  Brandon is doing well now...wonderful in fact. He's like 8 or 9 years old now!  I had a hard time watching it. I saw my boy hurting,  I recognized my hands and my stethoscopee in his little hands. I thought some of you might like to see what I used to do. I miss my pediatric nursing career but relish that there were wonderful outcomes like Brandon's. 

Cori's note to me:
" Everyone who was involved in the video went to view it on Thurs night before it was posted and I just started to cry, it was really hard to see my baby like that. You know for 2 or 3 of those photo's you were there with me. The one with the wash rags on him, you were the one who gave him the medicine stuff that made him start to go into shock. I don't remember what it was, I wanna say it was gamma or something, I didnt write that down. I also don't remember why he was going to need it, but I remember there were possible problems to go along with it and they happened!
And the other picture with his lines being flushed, that was you flushing them. Yea, it brings so many memories back for me too. Very hard memories I don't like to remember, but also such wonderful memories. Like meeting you! "
