Sights and Sounds

A few things stick out in my mind of experiences I have had while in nursing school, working as an aid, and a nurse.  Here are some examples, there are many more, but these are what I think of first.

The gorgeous blue eyes that God gave to an elderly Down Syndrome patient.  The sound of her telling her nurse from the group home she lives in that she loves her.

The look of determination on a 17 years old face as she learned to walk again after a stroke.

A confused patient sitting nude in another patients room at 3 AM.

The tears of joy as a new mother hears her baby girl cry for the first time.

The look of sadness as an 80 year old man sits by his wife’s death bead.

A confused patient who has managed to raise his bed 6 feet off of the ground.

A loving mother rocking her baby who has just returned from surgery to repair her cleft lip.

The look of amazement and excitement when a patient hears his own voice after not speaking in months because of a stroke.

The look of anxiety when a man’s wife is rushed down the hall for an emergency C-Section.

Being hugged by a patient and his wife after I walked him out to their car.

The look of fear on a 29 year olds face after finding out he had a heart attack.

The look of wonder that I’m sure was on my face when I watched the birth of a 20 week old premature baby and saw him survive.
