A sad goodbye to Nurse Kim

As much as I dread this posting tonight, I am reminding myself that this blog will someday be handed over to the babies as a memory-A look back at their lives from before they were even born, a memory of their experiences in their little lives and a way to remember the countless people who became a part of their lives, in some way or another.


So tonight, we remember Nurse Kim. As you all know, after the babies were born, they spent some time in the NICU, but successfully "graduated" after 3 and 4 weeks. Considering however, that they were released to their crazy parents still weighing under 4 and 5 pounds, they were lucky enough to be introduced to "Nurse Kim." If I were a nurse, I think I'd want her job! She gets to visit all the NICU graduates in their homes every few months or so and check their progress to make sure they are continuing to thrive outside of the hospital.


Interestingly however, it wasn't until our first visit with Nurse Kim, that we realized we already knew Kim from years ago, through family and friends! As they say, "small world."Anyhoo, Kim would come over and essentially play with the babies while assessing their development. She was just so good with them...so loving and gentle...We were working so hard at our last visit to get Hunter and Ethan to push themselves up on their arms while lying on their bellies! I was so excited for her to see them not only pushing themselves up but now sitting and playing and babbling and interacting with eachother. She was also instrumental in providing guidance and advice regarding the cranial bands, and how to approach the insurance companies about getting them covered. We were expecting Nurse Kim to come over sometime in the next month.


Unfortunately, we learned only recently that she had become sick and unfortunately lost her terrible battle. Nurse Kim passed away today. We know she's in a good place now, but darn it, we liked having her here with all of us! She was doing such important work and making a difference in so many lives (so many little lives, especially!) So tonight, once again, we are reminded how short life is. Do not take things for granted...Tell the people you appreciate that you appreciate them. Don't wait for tomorrow.

Tonight, we will remember Nurse Kim. And we know she's watching us from above, so we won't be slackers! We'll keep working on getting bigger and stronger! Because we know she would've been proud. Goodbye Nurse Kim. Thank you for being in our lives....

It is sad to see that Nurse Kim has passed away. She was the same nurse to care for my son, Zildjian, after he came home from the NICU 2 years ago. He had spent 7 weeks in the NICU. She was wonderful and had a great way of working with my son. He graduated from her care 2 weeks before his 1st birthday. I hadn't seen or heard from her since he graduated til I read your blog.

So sad,
Lisa McGill (Cottonwood After Care)
