Luca

Yesterday, the worst thing has happened.
We had to intubate and resuscitate a 2 years old boy.
He arrived at the ER completely burned.
His 4 years old brother had set his bed on fire.
Playing with a gas lighter.


The only thing I could think about was my daughter.
How precious they all are.
This tiny naked body burned.
We transfered him to a top pediatric hospital as soon as he was stable.


If he survives this, he'll suffer for years.


I'm in pain... and crying.
And my daughter is sleeping. She looks so peaceful.

I'm so sorry you witnessed such a tragedy, but I'm also glad he got competent medical help and is stable. The poor family must be shattered. And this poor little boy.... I'll pray for him. How long will he suffer if he survives? Is there hope he'll recover fully? They are so precious. I think we'll all hold our little ones a bit tighter right now.

oh pain. this is so hard to read. I hope you are finding some peace. This piece you added here is visually strong, and harsh, yet the hearts moving upward are hopeful.

Sending love to you and to the little boy and his family xx

there is nothing i feel able to add in words for suffering that is so deep and so prolonged... there is only love and compassion and comfort and care to be given... in person by those who care for him, and from a distance those of us who now hear his story and carry him in our hearts... this is a beautiful piece of art that has come from such sorrow and heartache... art so often does this... thank you for sharing it, for sharing this little boy, and for sharing you...
