Nurse Angee

I have heard many times
that it is good to have a lawyer & a doctor in the family.
I don't have a lawyer, though I know a few.
I do have some excellent doctors,
but I am not related to any of them.
I do however, have a nurse
and I believe nurse trumps lawyer and doctor.
Think I am wrong?
Clearly you have not met Nurse Angee.

The care we received at Bergan was outstanding.
To be honest, even the food was pretty dang good.
But no one compares to Angee.
She is more than an amazing nurse, she is my best friend.

She was there when I delivered Noah,
and she was there for Amelia.
She helped us bathe her,
heard her sweet voice,
held her, wrapped her and loved her.

I could not have shared these intimate moments with a stranger.

I needed Angee.
Amelia needed Angee.

I wish I had the words.
I'm hoping this picture is worth a thousand
because all I can conjure up is
Thank you.

Just beautiful. Tears flowing. What a blessing to have Angee there to help you. Sharing in Amelia's life, and helping you beyond a nurses duty. Having someone you can share all those precious memories with, only the way two women can share. All the details. Nurses sometimes don't get the credit they deserve, and you are so lucky to have Angee.

Your tribute to Angee is beautiful. She is one tough cookie and has a heart of gold. Bless you both for sharing those moments. She has witnessed Amelia in ways many of us have not; I am tickled that little Amelia could feel the love that flow between two girlfriends! It is like none other.

What a great picture! I am so glad you got to share those moments with not only your best friend but someone who is able to do the things she did as a nurse on such a special day.
