Mementos from the absolutely incredible NETS (Newborn Emergency Transport Service) team who airlifted Cody to Camperdown Children’s Hospital. There was one who went well beyond the call of duty, a nurse, whose name was also Karen. She came to our little hospital with the NETS team, travelled back with Cody, held him while he died (after the life support tubes were removed, subsequent to seven cardiac arrests), and then stayed at the big city hospital long after her shift ended, so that she would be there when we arrived. I don’t think we will ever forget her.
