I had an experince with a patient that made me realize again why I have chosen Nursing as my career, There are times when you get a little burned out and think, "why am I doing this?"
This week we bent the schedule and added a patient on WAY early and I am so glad we did. The patient was a triple amputee who is also suffering from metastatic cancer. We ended up doing a block on him becuase he was having so much pain. I am thankful that he got some relief and that the doctor was agreeable to adding him to the schedule.
Glad I am a nurse.
I love you mom. Thanks for being a nurse.
