Treatment #2 of cycle #7
Everything went smooth as silk today, My blood pressure and blood sugar were well within the acceptable range for treatment.
It is nice to see the familiar faces, the warm smiles of the girls in the infusion room, they have become more like family than nurse technicians to me.
I know their names, their boyfriends/husbands names, kids names and ages and what they wore for Halloween, where they went on vacation, what their plans for Christmas are. I know a lot about the personal lives of these people and I know how much they care about the job they do. I am eternally grateful to them for their skill, their caring attitudes, their sense of humor.
I can’t imagine doing the job they do each day! To see the suffering of patients that are in advanced stages of cancer who are fighting desperately to hang on to life day in and day out. To do this job with the hope that you are making a difference in someones life and to see the positive affects that the treatment has on patients must be truly rewarding.
So in this post I wanted to recognize these soldiers who are on the front line of the battle. I commend you all and hope you realize how important the job you do is, not only to each patients physically but emotionally as well.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !! You guys are the BEST !!
