Once I cut the hospital bracelets off, I’m officially home.
After spending six in the care of UT Hospital staff, I am amazed and impressed at the care and tireless service of all the workers from doctors to RNs to CNAs to the cleaning ladies and even to the phlebotmists who woke me in the middle of the night. Watching the effort and serivce of RNs deserve special note. The floor nurse work long, hard shifts and continually adapt to new situations in each room. One minute they are taking blood, the next changing dressings, or teaching about medications or a host of other duties. They effortlessly shift between functions while serving patients with a kind and caring attitude. I am grateful for all their hard work.
One RN who took extra time to care for me and explain many different things about medications and transplant care was Joyce. She’s a kind woman and Kelly and I deeply appreciate her service.
There’s much to write about and I may add an update or two tomorrow. Plus I hope to read more of Jeremys’ delightful tongue-in-cheek comments. I also will try to add a reflection to Floydville this week, but I’ll let you know here as well. Thanks for your kind words, prayers for Izaak and myself and your presence in my life.
