...thankful I'm a part of a team that is so deserving of my respect and that they all work SO hard to do what's right for our patients (desk staff, RNs and MDs alike).
...thankful for my health. So many of my patients would give anything to have the strength and stamina to work a 14 hour day.
...thankful for the stories I get invited to participate in every day. I firmly believe that some of the greatest earthly displays of dignity, strength, compassion, sacrifice and perseverance happen in the context of a bone marrow transplant. I hope I never forget what an honor it is to bear witness to those stories.
...thankful for my brothers and sisters who promptly respond to a self-pitying text with a generous string of pictures and videos of some of the cutest babies and kiddos currently walking the face of this earth. The baby giggles from those little hearts fill me with so. much. joy. and watching their older siblings interact with them and entertain them is one of my life's purest delights.
...thankful for a dog-sitter who loves my dog like her own and is SO incredibly flexible with my unpredictable schedule. Andrea, I seriously don't know what I would do without you.
