Today I ran to the Verizon store really quickly to grab a phone...didn't take time to shower and had greasy hair pulled into a ponytail. As I was dickering with the store employee, a couple came up to me and asked if my name was XXXX, I said yes, (embarrassed about my appearance!!) and they said we knew it...you delivered our baby. The ladies eyes welled up with tears and she reviewed her experience with me. (The FHR dropped into the 40s and we couldn't get it to come up with interventions, Doc wanted her rushed to the OR for a crash and by the time the Doc got there, FHR was up so we watched her and ended up taking her back to her room later where she delivered a healthy little girl!) She said that she was so grateful, and that "even when you were running down the hall pushing my bed, you were completely calm and reassuring, and you'll never know how much you meant to me, I'll never forget you!" Whew, what a compliment!!! I've walked on clouds all day long! I guess I've always wondered if people remember you after the experience if over a while, and this was 8 months ago.
Sorry it's long, but I had to share that one!
