You should be able to change your priorities at a whim. Hold your tears. Run fast to a code or walk slow with a post op Appy. Postpone lunch to 2PM or not even get one. Attempt to go to the bathroom…..4 times. Walk with meds in hand or a popsicle. Kneel down to talk to a toddler or have your arms around a teen. Welcome parents in tears because of a new diagnosis or welcome them back with smiles for gratitude. Bade them goodbye for a short ER visit or bade them good luck for an admission…………. we are truly special …..because everyday even without knowing it we touch lives ……….. Happy Nurses Week to all the nurses of Children’s Hospital of Michigan and to all my nurse friends!
