National Nurses Day

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th.  And today is National Nurses Day!  Thank you to all the nurses out there that work so hard each and every day.

Nurses are the people that helped make our life in the NICU for 83 days bearable.  They are the ones who helped to educate us about NICU terms and equipment, taught us how to care for our micro preemie, and supported us through the entire experience.  They are amazing people who are so dedicated and compassionate that they deserve a day to celebrate their hard work. 

The NICU nurses not only cared for our daughter but they cared for us too.  When Ella was in the hospital I made a sign with a picture of all of her primary nurses standing beside her bedside.  It said "Ella loves her nurses!"  And I believe she really did!
