Code Blue

A very personal story from Ilana Mercer . . .

"Code Blue, intensive care unit," "Code Blue, intensive care unit!"

When the Code-Blue alarm sounded over the hospital's loudspeaker system, my husband and I knew it sounded for our daughter. It was 11 p.m. The hallways of the British Columbia hospital were dark. Only one emergency operating theatre was in use. She was in it. The skeletal staff came running. Resuscitation carts were rushed toward the theatre.

My own heart nearly stopped, because she is my heart.

The rest of the story can be found here.
