Feeling: :/ eh.
It's been 3 weeks since it happened, but I'm still feeling a bit down about it all! I'm not supposed to talk publicly about the details but, he was a 2 year old, died of SIDS.
He was originally in our hospital before passing away from SIDS, he was undernourished and neglected by his parents when he came to my ward. Nothing points to his undernourishment as the cause of his death as he had been in recovery for quite some time then, and was recovering very fast and amazingly well!
It's so sad. I don't know how to feel about it yet, he was such a cute little boy. It's unfortunate the way he was treated by his parents - but for those of you wondering if his family is going to get charged, well, there's a case so far. Child services/the police are looking into it now, and I hope the little boy is done justice!
Anyway, how has your weeks been? ^_^
