President Obama has mentioned more than once his admiration and love of nurses, and the profound impact that nurses have had on his life. During the past month (especially), I have been reminded of his words, many times over. The kindness and generosity of the nursing staff at my mother's nursing home during the last difficult week of her life was truly remarkable.
I can never thank them enough. For helping me and my wife through those last seven lousy days. For truly caring. And for the love they expressed ( in so many, many ways) for my mother over the years.
I honestly don't know how they do it, day in and year out. Nurses are special, wonderful human beings.
From the bottom of my aging, grieving heart... thank you for being there.
You guys are the best.
