Home Away From Home

Hey guys, so I’ve been back at the Cancer center I left when my contract was over November 1st and let me tell you what. I missed these amazing women I am proud to call a part of my sister circle of nurse friends. I was so excited on Monday when I came in and EVERYONE got a hug, even my preceptor who absolutely hates hugs lol:} In fact, she was the first one I went to when I came through the door. She reminds me of one of those people who tries to keep a straight face when something’s funny but you still see an inkling of a smile come through. Yup, that’s my Sarah! Pam from Alabam is still her crazy, fussing self and Kelli is my diva extraordinaire. Jess and Mary Lynn are forever sweethearts and Nicole, well she’s our “stick and move nurse.” Marie is our gentle lamb, Brooke our “New Baby Momma” and Sheila is our alarm setter, LOL! We have Medical Assistant’s, Tati and Kirstin who rock and roll. Everyone was happy to see me and Lord knows I was happy to see them. I did a quick refresher with Miranda (My Commander and Chief) and got busy working like a bizzy bee.

I know I featured them in December, but they’ll always be worth mentioning because they mean a great deal to me. My New Year is much happier because I got to go to my home away from home. If ever I leave and don’t return for another contract, I want them to know they’ve placed a beautiful red stain on my chest in the form of a heart. I also got to see my “ACE” oncology doctor who wasn’t doing so good today but I was able to give her a great big light hug because of her back pain. The manager was back today and it was so nice to see her smiling face as I hugged her too. I’m just happy in case you couldn’t tell. Although there’s no place like home, this is one place I consider my “Home Away From Home.” So, I’m incredibly blessed and favored that they even asked me to come back. What an awesome group of beautiful spirits. Now, Oh My Guawd, I’m missing my Anne Marie because she retired last week, but she’s always in my heart and prayers. She’s the little lady seated and everyone has a shirt representing her many sayings. We love you and wish all the best living in retirement. I declare, if you ever want to work somewhere as a permanent staff nurse, this would be the place. Peace and blessings to all my nurse sisters in HFG’s Cancer Center in Oncology at Christiana. You women rock to heaven and back and I thank God for you everyday!

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.
