“My patience was pretty thin, and I snapped at him. What else did he want??? And then the tears kept coming. I took a longer look at that little pudgy boy in his pjs, crying over nothing. And I realized, more clearly than I have all week, that he’s not crying over nothing.”

Every day I set foot in the ER, there’s a high risk of contamination, injury, and possibly death because of lack of masks, gloves.
