Dear Raven,

I started reading your spoiler column when I began watching ABC shows after my CBS shows were canceled. I have followed your battle with cancer as well, though I have never commented or contacted you.

I am also an Oncology RN who works in the chemo/infusion office of a regional oncology center. I understand your complicated situation with your beloved oncologist. And if I am understanding correctly, the oncologist is aware of the situation but has chosen to keep the nurse on staff. This woman has crossed so many professional lines that it makes my head spin. Even befriending a patient (or even previous patient) on social networking is a huge ethical misstep. I know you do not want to cause issues for your oncologist, and rightly so since he seems to be the only one you've had good care from, but I agree with the person above me: show the email to the doctor. Or send a letter and copy of the email to the state board of nursing. Also, FYI, you should be able to look up this nurse's record on the board of nursing's website. It will tell if there are any disciplinary actions or complaints against her. Although it seems like you already have a good read on her. :(

With the updated additional info you have given, I truly understand your fear. You are prudent to have fear that a person who has emailed you with the date of your death is responsible for performing procedures on your port, and possibly other things as ordered by your Oncologist.

My concern is that she might be one of those truly insane nurses who "make" things come true. She might introduce bacteria into your port, or a big push of an air bubble into your circulation through your port, or flush it with something other than the heparin and saline flush solution.
I don't KNOW that she would do this, but we really don't know how deranged she is.

When this was just " a false friend" sending you a malicious and hurtful email it was one thing, but knowing that she has some power over your health adds a whole different dimension and siniater meaning to the email.
I can tell you that I would not let her touch me after sending that email about death. She is evil. Mentally ill, too, more than likely, because normal nurses do not terrify their patients in this way.

You can make arrangements for home health to do the things she would do, most likely. Please try to not have her administer care to you. I can tell you that I don't trust her at all.

I love you and I am praying for you. You are strong, so strong. This is a whole different level of evildoing than anyone should have to try to deal with.

A longtime internet friend
