30 days since the quake marked by 3 days of national mourning
It's been 30 days, and my thoughts are with the patients who left indelible marks upon my heart and the millions who have been affected by the quake and the resulting situation. The little girl I so wanted to bring back to the States with me. The older girl, only 15, who really did think I was her mother every time I gave her ketamine to change her dressings. She would want me to rub her face and hold her hand. So I did. Just like the mother she lost would have. For the girls who no longer have mothers, I cry. For the boys who lost their fathers, I pray. And for the nation that lost so much, I hope.
