Nurses, Doctors, Therapists, Volunteers

Nurses have been in the news lately, so I decided to do a post dedicated to them. ❤

Robbie had many wonderful nurses. They watched over him at night when we couldn’t be there. Built sloth towers on his I V pole with him. One of the doctors would even make up reasons to move him to his favorite floor and nurses if he landed in a remote location of the hospital.

In fact the night before we lost him, he was moved to the Palliative Care unit and Robbie assumed he had been moved to have a better room. He thanked them, which was one of the last things he said. A few came and found us when they heard of his loss, shed tears with us, and said good bye to Robbie. We are very grateful to the entire hospital staff. The nurses, therapists, PA’s, volunteers, and his Doctors.

Robbie and his OT on his 24th Birthday. She bought him balloons and treats. Met him outside of work for ice-cream and was always very encouraging to him.

    I love this post dedicated to nurses and other hospital staff. As a volunteer pet therapy team, Molly and I have become friends with many nurses, OTs, PTs, and doctors. So many of them care deeply for their patients, especially the ones they see on a regular basis. They share our joy, and they share our sorrow. And I’m sure they loved your sweet, kind Robbie! ❤️
