A definition of humbling: watching a child go through full respiratory arrest right in front of you. A definition of inspiring: participating in a smooth, successful resuscitation, and as a team, bringing the child back from the brink of the arrest. That was a long night, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.


I keep tellin’ ya, Jason: you’re a natural intensivist. Maybe a pediatric intensivist, but an intensivist nonetheless. You got the ‘tude, the stones, and now you’re earning the creds.

Nice to hear you’re having a good PICU rotation.
