A huge bouquet of roses goes out to the nursing staff at St. Anthony's Hospital.
Often families would like to stay 24 hours a day with their loved one while they are in the hospital. They often make the attempt but, sooner or later, exhaustion grabs hold.
On such occasions I have had the honor and privilege of sitting with their loved one throughout the nights.
I have had the opportunity to see first hand the compassion and care the nurses at St. Anthony's exhibit. Their concern for each patient is evident in their speech and actions. Many nights can be hectic and demanding, and yet they never fail to check in on each patient, moving them into comfortable positions and making sure they are well taken care of.
As well, I have spent some days there and likewise I witness the same kind of professional care and compassion. I just want to thank them, with great appreciation, for jobs well done!!
