To whom it may concern:
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent care you have provided for me while I've been in the hospital (and even here at home). I don't know where I would be or what I would do without all of you. For all I know, I'd probably be buried in a grave somewhere, or in a lot worse shape than I already am.
I know at times I have proved to be a very difficult patient. Please accept my deepest apologies. I know you have worked tirelessly, caring not only for my own personal needs, but others as well, and you are more than likely exhausted and wishing you were someplace else. I don't blame you. Yet you do what is required, and you all have done a marvelous job!
I am doing better today. I am alive, breathing, and not pushing up daisies. LOL I'm also in not as much pain as is the norm for me, and my heart/lungs aren't acting up. Thank God for small blessings! :) I pray this continues. I feel pretty good, all things considering. While I may never run a marathon or do gymnastics (not that I ever COULD, mind you .... LOL), I still have some semblance of my health, and I pray I continue TO do better.
My husband and my daughter have been wonderful caretakers, and I know they appreciate the added bonus of having you all come out of your way to make me happy, or at least, comfortable. They appreciate it nearly as much as I do. You are truly angels here on earth! May God bless each and every one nof you as you care for the sick/needy!
I hope you get extra jewels in your crown on that day when we face our Maker. You deserve that and so much more! All I can say is thank you; I am most humbled by your compassion, your love, and your dedication. Oh, if only more nurses were like you all ....
~Sincerely, Mrs. Pat Williamson.
