Don't give up. EVER: There's one thing i know.. That is... I can't predict the future. I care for critically ill patients every day. There are patients that I am sure will die... Then they get better. Then there are patients that i think i will "cure". But a higher power intervenes. Ultimately, I have discovered that life is a dichotomy. Life is very strong... But it is very fragile. Stay strong! and accept help.
