“Nursing is a kind of mania; a fever in the blood; an incurable disease which, once contracted, cannot be got out of the system. If it was not like that, there would be no hospital nurses, for compared dispassionately with other professions, the hours are long, the work hard, and the pay inadequate to the amount of concentrated energy required.
A nurse, however, does not view her profession dispassionately. It is too much a part of her.”
~ Monica Dickens
Today I am reporting on the progress of my patient. Nicole slept very well last night for the first time in three weeks.
She woke up feeling a bit better.
Thank you for sending all the good energies. It really helped.
It is a nice cool day after all that hot weather, and the sky is pretty outside right now. We can hear birds and morning noises. I can smell toast.
I will ensure that Nicole stays in bed. I shall bite her if she tries to get up. Rest is best.
She starts nasty new drugs today. It might be a bit blerk around here. But we are ready for anything.
That is all for now.
PS – Here’s my ‘don’t you disobey me’ face that Nicole woke up to this morning. I have an expression for every situation!

Dear Nurse Bert, You seem to be doing a very good job for your human charge. As one nurse to another though I do not think that biting and nipping is advisable. Nudging and of course your very stern look will work well. keep up the good work. You are a gifted fur friend. may light and rainbows be with you. lol Jocelyn … Ixchel!
Nurse Burt means business …you better listen Nicole lol
Such an adorable nurse you have. I want to give him a big kiss …so I’ll just blow him one and one for you too …they are coming your way all the way from Halesowen in the West Midlands U.K near the beautiful Clent Hills . They there yet? You take care good luck with meds .

Thanks for the update Nurse Bert – while I have been worrying I now know she is in good hands (paws). Please let her know that she is in my thoughts and will pray that the new drugs aren’t too bad but do the job they are meant to do. You take care of yourself as well Nurse Bert.
