This is a day late because Drake has his first bad cold and I did not have time to finish.
My mama is a Registered Nurse. I always knew her job was special, but I never truly understood the value of nursing until I witnessed it from the NICU.
Our nurses held and rocked and fed my baby boy when I left each night. They supported me when no breast milk came, and they made sure D got donor milk as long as he could.
They made scrapbook pages and graduation certificates. They gave the first bath and taught me how.
They made me sit that first week before I could hold him even though I wanted to push.
Thank you for your expert care and kindness.
