Nurse Appreciation Week - May 6-12, 2009

We just wanted to give a shout out to all of our wonderful nurses from the SCCA and UWMC during Nurse Appreciation Week. Nurses are true partners in the care of any patient and we were amazed by how much we relied on them in so many ways. With the nurses we worked with, they had been through so many of the same things with other patients that they were able to explain to us what might happen based on their experience. You could see the empathy that they had when Tyler was in pain and the sensitivity they had to deal with the less glamorous side of nursing.

This picture shows Jackie, our primary nurse from SCCA. She was AMAZING and we are definitely going to miss seeing her every week. I don't know how she was able to keep all of Tyler's details clear over the last 9 months, but she was a point of consistency for us throughout our time at SCCA.
