Nurse's Day

There are quite a few nurses who read this blog, and I'd like to say Happy Nurse's Day to each of them! May 6th is Nurse's Day, which actually starts off Nurse's Week each year. It ends on May 12th, which is Florence Nightingale's birthday. (No, I didn't remember this from nursing school, I had to look it up!)

So, to the 2.4 million registered nurses and 531,000 licensed practical nurses (from the US Census website) out there, THANKS for what you do! You affect many people's lives and are a blessing to your patients and their families! (At least, that's always our goal!)

Happy Nurse Day to you, Kari! You make a great nurse!! Doug gave me a card with the inside singing the song,"Dem bones, dem bones,..." very appropriate for working in sports-orthopaedic! Fun.
