A Note About Melinda's Work

We don't, very often, put YouTube videos on our blog - especially if they aren't ones that we've recorded ourselves.  I'm making an exception this time, however.  This one is near and dear to my heart - and a catchy tune you'll be singing in your head all day!

Due to HIPPA regulations, I really don't have much occasion to talk about my work as a NICU Nurse at UMC.  Suffice it to say, I love my job!  There are difficult days, but the good days outweigh the bad and there's nothing more satisfying than to know you've made an impact in someone's life - especially when they only weigh 1 or 2 pounds.  If I reflect over my career as a Nurse, these past couple of years in the NICU are the years that I feel most proud of the work I'm doing, most satisfied with the care I'm giving.  I am amazed, daily, by the level of knowledge and skill of my co-workers.  Each of them are champions, truly heroes!  So while I can't talk about my work very much, or very often - know that I'm doing exactly what I am meant to be doing - and enjoy this little video/song!

Thanks for looking after our baby Lucas, Melinda! He is doing well - very big for a 3 month-old, and starting to smile a little. That was a cute video - thanks for sharing it with me. :)
