Remember nurses today, and every day

Kevin's favorites

“Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.”
Dag Hammarskjöld

Today, May 6, is National Nurses Day.

The week of May 6- May 12 is National Nurses Week. May 12 is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Two months ago to the day on this Tuesday, I had successful hip surgery. The anesthesiologist was terrific. The surgeon was terrific. The surgeon’s assistant was terrific.

And then there were the nurses. The nurses. They gave me constant attention. Before the surgery. Immediately after the surgery. From the moment I was wheeled to my room after surgery to when I left the hospital. I’ll never forget them.

The thanks I can’t find the words to express I send to the nurses at Aurora West Allis Medical Center.
