    To samyRN and DC Collins, your replies sure did me a world of good. I'm happy to know that others gained a good feeling from reading my article. I do love writing.

A lot of "expressing" going on there!

    Could you imagine Shannon MM if we worked the same shift together? We could sing a song or two in harmony to our patients.

And the patients certainly would be more relaxed and comfortable.
