Sad Day

When A was first diagnosed with her brain tumors, she was in 6th grade and we lived in another town than the one we live in now. The school nurse was so amazing with her right from the get go. She carried A to our car the day she was diagnosed after collapsing in the hallway at school. When A was able to return to school, she had a wheelchair for A to use whenever she tired out so we wouldn't have to drag hers to school every day. She would sit next to A, hold her hair when she was ill from her chemo and would rub her back when she was lying down. All and all she was an amazing woman whom A thought the world of. She was an unending source of support and encouragement to me when I was still realing from A's diagnosis. She personaly collected $500 from the teachers and staff at the school to help with the expenses of getting A to her Dr. appointments.

Last spring the nurse lost controll of her car, hit a tree and was killed instantly. A and I were both devistated.  Tonight the school is dedicationg a new outdoor classroom in her honor and we really want to go but since I spent wheat money I had on groceries, there is no gas to.

I am so sorry, it sounds like the nurse was wonderful.  Is it possible for you to get a ride with someone to attend the ceremony?

That is sad.  She will know that you are thinking of her anyway.

What a nice post if even that's all you're able to do in her memory and honor. Warm thoughts to you and your daughter as I know you'd like to be there.

Not far about 20 miles from here. I am starting to feel icky, headache, chills so it is probably for the best that I stay home anyway.

 She sounds like an amazing person. I'm so sorry that you won't be able to go. Is there a way you and A can do a written tribute to her and E-mail it to be read at the ceremony?

I do wish I lived closer to you, I could take you to this event glacly.  A was very lucky to have such a caring woman at the school.  Sad that she can't go honor her, what you should do there at home is have a "moment of silence"

What an awesome lady.  I'm sad you can't go to the dedication but I'm sure she understands.
