I thanked a Nurse today

by Poochiewoochie Poochiewoochie (Member)

My Mom fell and broke her hip and needed a partial hip replacement. Today she was released back to the NH and when we went to get her stuff that the ambulance forgot to bring back to the NH I told the nurse thank you and I appreciated all she did for my Mom. She said it was her pleasure and told us to have a Merry Christmas.

I know she was doing her job but it only takes a minute to say thank you.
