    Beautiful story. I try to remind myself everyday that basic comfort can mean the most to my patients. And for the most part, they are very appreciative for that aspect of the care I give them. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    You are a sweety, I hope (I think I can) I can hold onto my compassion, I am about to start hospice nursing and I am inspired by your story.

    I am a school nurse, sitting at my computer, waiting for my next patient to walk in. Your story brought back many memories of my days as a hospice and elderly care nurse. It made my cry and thank God we have the wonderful privilege to serve others in helping to alleviate their pain, whether emotional or physical. Thanks so very much for sharing your experience!
