Thanks for all your work in the variety of nursing options we have. My favorite nursing has been with terminally ill patients and their families. We each have different gifts and I am grateful for yours and for mine.
One day, in the days before Google, I was working with a febrile gentleman who was ready to die and refused further antibiotics. His son and daughter in another room were trying to recall the lyrics of an old song I knew from my childhood, “Oh, My Papa.” They wanted to sing it for him before he died. It was fortunate that they had this older nurse visiting that day. :wink:
