Featuring my Nursing colleagues on Feature Friday!

I've had a super busy week. Lots of changes at my job, lots of loses of friends and colleagues.

So, I thought I'd feature them. Usually, I feature an artist and their work. But this Friday I wanted to write about something personal.

I'm a nurse at a small local community hospital. Many of the things I always loved about working there and why I worked there for so long is the same as many employees .

There was a sense of family, a sense that everyone really cared about one another.
You walk down a corridor and there is a constant, "Hi" how ya doing additude. Over these troubled economic times, there have been changes in administration, a focus on "business" and "budget". New presidents, vice presidents, management, and a union.

Last Tuesday morning they called every LPN (licenced practical nurse) into a mandatory meeting, and told them there job was eliminated. There were 46 of them. My friends , that I worked side by side with for over 25 years. Friends , that our children grew up together.

There is such a sense of sadness this week . They had to go empty their lockers and go, right then and there.

I want to dedicate this feature friday to them. I want to tell them thank you for always being such great friends, and always putting the patients first. Thanks for making my job fun, and full of laughter. They showed compassion everyday, and made the hospital what it was.
It's never going to be the same.
My wish for them, is that they find a new adventure, a place that will appreciate them for all they are. A wish that they stay strong , and optimistic.

A real Monday morning..after the storm

Hubby and friend were working all day Sunday down in the basement, making what they call is some kind of inside french drain to get and keep the prolonged water out of my basement. It was NOISY, jack hammering all day..Finally maybe something positive is coming. No more water, we can start cleaning down there. Well, it's a big job! BIG, heavy pieces of concert to carry, messy, cement dust up through my house..the kitties, again displaced and freaked out.. here is MOnday!

Getting ready for work..Ahhh..No hot water..JOHN!!!!!

The saga continues...................
