Today is National Neonatal Nurse Day. I'm not sure what that means exactly, or how you're supposed to "celebrate" and I'm guessing that most of you nurses don't even know that it's today!
But I know. So THANK-YOU. Many of Asher and Nolan's nurses read this, so please remember how much you still, and always will, mean to us.
You saved their lives. You let me cry without judgement. You re-assured us. You made me laugh when nothing else in the world seemed funny. You listened to our concerns. You spoke on our behalf. You helped me feel like their mom in the worst possible setting. You are skilled, compassionate, and life changing. You made the difference.
Those of you who have never been cared for by neonatal nurses are lucky, of course. But those of us that have been are lucky too.
