HOLIDAYS AT THE HOSPITAL

Call me crazy, but I was so excited to work Christmas night shift this year! My children’s hospital went above and beyond for these kiddos. The outside garden was turned into a winter wonderland and all the kids received their Christmas wish-list items.

The best part about working Christmas was playing “Chan-ta Clause.” I got to sneak into their rooms and deliver presents while they were sleeping, refueling their bodies to continue fighting for their lives. Seeing their joy and excitement waking up on Christmas morning was indescribable. They weren’t patients stuck in isolation, they got to be normal kids again.

This is why I am a nurse. This is why I do what I do.
