We had a troop brought in with an infection and was placed in ICU. His mom was called, and after talking with the young man’s liaison, I told him to stop by the WWMC for a quilt that I had just unpacked. There were about 20 quilts that were just beautiful. They were a little large, but very nice. Just as we were talking, the mom was brought in by another liaison. Since the first liaison had to go, I went back to the WWMC and grabbed one of the quilts and took it to ICU. I got there just as she was being briefed by the doctors. I just handed the quilt to the liaison and left, it’s not my place to stand there as a mom is getting told about her son’s condition. Later, the liaison came down to thank me. Well, to thank me the best way some of them know how – with a tease that I was not as unbalanced as I looked. He gave me a pat on the back and said thanks.
Just knowing that this kid had a bad infection reminded me of Justin and has me thinking about him. Many of you might have joined after this kid grabbed my heart and I shared the stories with the yahoo group, but you can find it in the messages on the yahoo group. I hope that they can get this patient’s infection under control quickly.
