So sad...

Ok I know I just posted, but I just read a post by New Nurse in the Hood titled Regret and it just really broke my heart. I know that one day I too will confront this issue, but honestly in all the hustle and bustle of thinking about nursing school and the future, etc. I just really don't think about abuse all that much. This was a bit of a wake up call for me. I can think of a lot of gross stuff that I hope I don't ever encounter, but I'm sure I will, but abuse is something I KNOW I will encounter. I hope and pray that like this fantastic nurse, that I will do all I can while caring for this child, and I hope and pray that this post will stay with me and that it will make me a little more cautious when this sweet baby walks into my room and I'm having those little nagging doubts in my head. I have to say, I think this may be the hardest part about going into this field, the regrets of things that you can't change. Sad....
