    I am hoping to have a long career or if the lord leads me further into the healthcare field. I just want to be able to give someone a smile and that personal touch that shows them that they are not alone and someone truely does care no matter the situation. Everytime I am at a medical facility I see so many people who lack the personal touch they just want you in and out ASAP.

When I first started caring for him, his doctor told me to talk to him like any patient, because we really couldn't say that he didn't hear us. I always did...talking to him about weather, sports, and new movies. It was his birthday (after a few months) and I told him, "You have a beautiful day for your Birthday"...he looked out the window. I was so excited I got the nurses and doctors. He did it again and squeezed hands on command. He started coming around after that and told me he always heard me talking to him and how it gave him hope. He had a long road to recovery, but he did enough to have a productive life. I have always remembered that...no matter what the age or condition....I always talk to them....let them know what we are doing and what to expect and that they are not alone. Even when someone is dieing...they need that connection.
    Thanks for the story and an important reminder for everyone.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
