These things I love about what I do

We've been caring for a child who is very, very sick. Her heart stopped working after surgery at an outside hospital. They transferred her to us within hours after surgery, still on ECMO. Essentially, she was still on a bypass machine. Her heart was still. She was bleeding, alot. She was so, so, so sick.
Last night was the Glee season finale. We turned it on. The premise of the finale: "Don't give up, even if the odds are stacked against you, enjoy the journey" with the Journey soundtrack featuring "Don't stop believing". We didn't know if she could appreciate that it was on. She knew. Her sick, sick, little heart started beating and her blood pressure shot up.
She knew it was on.
