Calling Nurse Gwendolyn STATApril 07, 2011 by Victoria Strong Remember "Career Day"? Well, our fabulously thoughtful friends Heather, Wade, Reagan and Kendall read that blog post and quietly got to work making sweet G's career dream come true. A package arrived in the mail with a note that read:
And, yes, I burst into tears...happy, joyful, grateful tears.
Gwendolyn, You can be anything you want to be...
And Gwendolyn...well, Gwendolyn was too busy healing her teddy bear and sock monkey and other stuffed animal friends to worry about her crying mother. She wanted to listen to their lungs and their heart and their tummy sounds with her stethoscope. Her animals absolutely needed the cough assist machine, followed by suction, naturally. A few of them required CPT. But, and this was made very, very clear by the wise G herself (scrunched up concerned facial expression and lots of chatting to us about it), Nurse Gwendolyn will NOT be administering shots...because they hurt...period.
PS -- The scrubs have pants, too
