    I loved her writing so much! I've always wondered what happened to her, one day, she just left. I've hoped something unpleasant didn't happen.

    Has anyone ever heard from her?

    I so needed this today. After a day of nothing but call lights, bed alarms, crazy patients and eternal short staffing I was seriously considering leaving my job for something better. My mesh pants were nearly at their limit today. This helps.
