as i cuddle back up at home safely, i pray for those who are still being affected by hurricane sandy. i am proud to be a nicu nurse and give big hugs and lots of love to the nurses, families, and patients (big and very small) in NYC. my heart goes out to those in the hospital that was shut down due to sandy’s horrible aftermath. the nurses bagged ventilated patients down multiple flights of stairs and kept the patient’s safety their number one priority. i can only imagine what my night at the hospital last night would have been given if we were in the same situation. bless you NYC nicu nurses, you make us proud and remind me why i became a nurse in the first place!
