I do not want to go into how awful a day yesterday was, so I won’t.

But, just a few minutes ago I asked my very sweet nurse, Grace, who my nurse would be today. After I told her the reason for my concern from yesterday, she took my hand, very gently in hers, looked me in the eye and apologized for what happened yesterday.

Now, that is the true meaning of Grace.

  6. Jen, to me that was a true definition of what a nurse should be. I have many friends that are nurses and I often refer to them as God’s comforting angels. I am often asked if you could have one super power what would it be. My response would be the ability to take ones hurt, pain, and illness away with my hands and then shoot it into space to be never seen again. In a way Grace did this in a sort of way.

    Melissa and I send our love and wishes of comfort, love and healing and people like Grace continue to be by your side as a comforting angel.

    Grace sounds truly lovely… I will also say again that your beauty, spirit and attitude draw good, kind people to you. You deserve to have people like Grace around you. I’m so glad she’s with you, and provided comfort, and I want to remind you that you are the wonderful kind of person who appreciates that, even with all the crap you’re dealing with.

    Hmmm…Grace and Angel(o)….I am so sorry that you had to be subjected to that awful treatment yesterday…but I am going to take solace in the fact that you have been tended to by so many other wonderful nurses in the past – who remember you; and who make up for that one yesterday. I hope your pain is under control now and that you are resting as comfortably as possible. Sending you an 18 wheeler truck filled with hugs and kisses. xoxoxoxo
