Appreciation post

I just thought I'd take a minute to say how wonderful all the nursing staff at the hospital was. I've had OK nurses-- and even apathetic nurses-- in the past. This crew blew them away.

A hospital stay is never something I'd choose, but I couldn't have asked for a better crew of caring, dedicated professionals. I was really impressed.

I thanked each and every one of them (that I got the chance to thank) because I wanted them to know how much I appreciated their help. And I meant it. There was Taylor, Sarah, Jessica, Ryan, Alex, Connie, Justin, and others whose names I've either forgotten or didn't know. Not a single one of them was lacking in any way that I could see. 

Great job, guys! Thank you!

Also, I greatly appreciate the surgeon and urologist who took care of me. Their skill is appreciated... a lot! Imagine what they had to do to me, without killing me in the process! Most of the time under their direct care I was unconscious, but it seems they did their jobs well. I survived and am healing. Thank you!

And, last but not least, I appreciate all the support-- financial and emotional-- I've received from the readers of my blog. You're my friends, even if I've never met you in person. You probably can't know how much that means to me! Thank you!

Help me cover the expense of the surgery. Help however you can. Thank you!
