This past year made me realize what a world of a difference a wonderful nurse makes and how wonderful it is to be surrounded by nursing friends/family.
Nurses assess you every day head to toe to see how you are doing mentally and physically. Nurses pick you up when you are down (and I’m not talking about if a patient falls omg), are your biggest cheerleader in labor + delivery and best teachers during postpartum. We are a bunch of friends working together in an emergency (ER +L&D), gives each other morning hugs and takes coffee breaks to quickly talk about our latest date before the day becomes busy.
To my friends who are nurses plus my sweet mom plus my moms sweet nursing gfs plus my sister who was mistakenly a nurse today: Thank you for being the best group of people I know. What would we do without each other, esp this past year?! I really am not sure.
Happy Nurses Week my Darlings.
