@jolinda Actually Esther was not in the transplant area, she was in the regular medical area. I was admitted because my blood counts were very low.
You must be much, much younger than I am. Nurses (and doctors) are routinely younger than my son and daughter. My own doctor is only 13 years younger than I am but he treats me like I'm his grandmother! I can't figure that out, I'm in pretty decent shape for my age.

Age is so irrelevant these days, don't you think? I've known people 10 years older than me who are in "younger shape" than me and conversely I have a few friends who are working themselves to death and look 15 years older than their peers. Certainly illness can take its toll but overall I think age is so individual. If you are good shape and taking care of yourself I can imagine it can be discouraging to be treated as elderly.

For one of my last chemo treatments a few years ago, the nurse was one of my students when she was in junior high. That's when you hope you did a good job of teaching and that your students don't hold grudges!
