This was just SO nice. How wonderful to have a closeness with those your work with.
I loved working Peds. My floor was Surgery, but when I got to go up to Peds I just loved it. I only stayed for six years but now I wish I had stayed and retired.
Too many young ones at home and I was needed there. No one was minding the store, if you know what I mean.
I loved my job. I really did.
Have a great weekend!
I loved seeing that picture of you.. :) I always get a kick out of seeing photo's of my blogger friends..and I seldom get to see them. It was a treat to see you.
HUGE hug..

What a wonderful surprise for Betty and she looks marvelous for 90! I just organised a mini reunion for my nurses and it is 53 years since we started, in fact I am staring to plan for out 55th "big" reunion and we are going away for 2 nights. We had a wonderful 50th reunion 2 years ago and had 17 nurses present and 3 we visited on Skype. Nowadays we usually have 3 mini reunions a year! Have a wonderful weekend.
