That’s wonderful! I’m so happy

Thanks for sharing and LOVE THAT VASE hahaha!. Yes there are some awesome people who do show us their gratitude. One cancer patient who comes to talk to us daily, left us a huge sandwich plate from a local deli. It's people like her that make our jobs worth the hassles and making sure only those having procedures enter the hospital. Onto another day and staying in the battle zones. Stay safe!! blush

How wonderful that person is! Some are thankful but they don’t always let us know. Yes, there are beautiful people in the world. You must be such a caring nurse! From experience I know what it’s like to be in the hospital, feeling alone and scared. A kind word or gesture just makes all the difference. It’s people like you, Lor, and people like your patient that makes this world truly a better place. Thanks for sharing your story. I’m so uplifted!

Made my day. Truly. How was first day back for you? Did you get tested? Also known as “the nasal assault “joy Usually in those situations, here anyway, it is the rapid test or the one that goes in the nostrils, so not quite as bad. You can do it Eve! Will make you part of the special club!joy

Ahhh, the vase. Priceless, right? Where would us medical folks be without a bit of our “off” sense of humor? Yes, the battle zone...when we take care of someone who’s been in a car crash, we at least know that same car isn’t gonna jump out and hit us too. Not true with Covid. You stay safe too Debbie. Yes, always grateful for the goodies and smiles and things that make it worth it in the end.

Thanks Gkim, I’m glad it left you feeling good. It sure did me too! True too that not all folks show gratitude, which is ok. Sure makes it worth it when some do though. It sounds like you had some kind folks looking after you as well. I’m glad to hear that. I left the Lillies in their lovely vase at work for all to enjoy as my one kitty likes to nibble plants and they are toxic to cats. The card though, I will treasure forever and is on my fridge! blush

1st day back was tough......just was like What you expect me to work? Lol but not too bad. No testing yet......of course they haven’t worked out all the details. But was told would be spit test.......who knows. 
 

Glad she made your day! You and your coworkers and anyone else who is a healthcare worker should be praised, bowed, and be given a high five everyday, and a standing ovation! And if you can picture that.......I give that too you!

Yes I have had some really kind nurses but I’ve also had nurses that are just plain mean. That’s the worst. You feel so helpless when you’re in the hospital and sad as it is and then when a nurse is mean to you... well she made me cry. Lol that’s a very long time ago and I remember that one nurse in particular. Oh well. There are all kinds.

Ahhh...glad you liked the crocuses. They’re pretty sweet. This park by me has a patch that just gets covered. I’ll walk over there tomorrow and see if those are popping up yet. Supposed to get some snow here at the end of the week. I’ve learned since living here to believe it when I see it. Always interesting when it happens, joy
Hmmm. Feel like I’ve not been in this thread a while. Not sure where I’ve been? Lol. Head in the clouds a bit. Trying to wear out time some. Saw John today. Am thinking he might make my anniversary....? We shall see. Anyway...was a lovely day. More soon.

Sweet Lore!!

Ohhhhhhhh I love that pic in this season.  So fun to see what the winter there really looks like.  It is amazing to me that John is still standing.  Just must have some really sturdy stock there!!,!  I know they have you......and THAT is Definitely sturdy stock!,

I know it just kinda freaks me out that your year is coming...almost cry!!  Well that is not something new for me.  Lol. But after the year you had and still smoke free?  There are no words.

Man the cold weather did come sneaking in today.  I am really happy to be cooped up!!,  Way too much activity for me lately.

You have been around....well maybe less than before.  I just have not.  Guess there is seasons for everything.  I have not gone anywhere .  Love y’all too much!

Hugs to you and critters!
