Best nurse EVER!
Prior to my transplant I was afraid, I was overwhelmed and let's face it…I was dying. I have raved about my surgeon (Dr. Prieto) and my kidney donor (Dawn) but there is another individual who also stands out in my story. Lynette was my nurse coordinator prior to transplant and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! Lynette was calm when I was frantic, she was knowledgeable when I was confused but most importantly Lynette was comforting when I was inconsolable. I am so blessed to have had this angel on my team, to this day I don't think she realizes how much her guidance and compassion meant to me. Lynette stands out not just because she was a brilliant nurse but because she brought me hope during one of the toughest times in my journey, I am so grateful for this amazing nurse.
We are such a lucky group (okay, minus the terrible illness thing) and we have so much to be grateful for. Do you have a 'best nurse ever' story to brighten everyone's day?

When my mother-in-law was in her early nineties, she still lived in her own home. Every week she would go to the local nursing home to, as she said, visit the old people, many of whom were younger than she was.
@marvinjsturing My dad lived in a senior complex, and was always complaining about "all the old people there", without thinking he was actually older than almost everyone else! Bless his heart.
