Recovery has been very hard for Aislinn after being abused by a home healthcare nurse.  Blankets have temporarily covered the bruises, healing incisions, and absorbed the never ending tears. Big sister's hugs offer some healing benefits when visions of The Monster creep into Aislinn's head to haunt her. It will take a long time to heal the mental wounds.

 

 

Magical ponies watch over her during the night to help ward off post traumatic episodes and diabilating nightmares.

 

 

 

She has gathered with passionate soldiers who became additional protectors.

 

 

 

 

She wished upon many shooting stars to stop the nightmares, the panic attacks, the fear of the lift system, fear of the changing table and fear of her own bed.

 

 

 

She has held onto the her mommy's promise to make a her world safer.  She has believed her mommy would follow through to make Colorado safer for all of her special needs friends and others requiring medical care.  She knew her mommy's efforts in working with a lobbyist and the Executive Director of the Colorado Nurses Association would eventually payoff.

 

 

 

Many of you reached out to Aislinn and her family asking what you could do to help.  Many of you have already helped. You may have shared or read the 9News episodes or the other blogs about The Monster.  You now have an opportunity to help support a new bill 17-1121 on February 16, 2017 at 1:30pm at the Capital in the House Committee Room 271. Please join me as I testify in support the new bill 17-1121 that will require applicants for initial licensure or certification, as well as current licenses and certificate holders, to submit finger-based criminal history record check for nurses, Certified nurse aides, medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians and much more....
