    Most Of Them Anyway

    I was in a car accident about twenty years ago. The paramedics brought me in to the hospital on a backboard. My shirt and jacket were already open. Eventually, one or two nurses came along and undressed me. All they left on was my boxer shorts, and they were pulled down in the...

    Nurses Are Wonderful!

    I have long admired nurses since I was little. Part of it has to do with the fact that I was a preemie, and had to be taken care of by nurses. Later on, I worked in the hospital as a teenager, and working with nurses gave me even greater respect for them. Any time I hear someone...

    Nurses.

    When I was about 6 or 7 I was in hospital for nearly a year, I had a cyst on my brain, and had hydrocelphalus, (fluid on the brain), the nurses were fantastic, helping me get better, that was many years ago now, but I'm so greatful for them.
