Happy Neonatal Nurses Day! In continuation of my posts on NICA Month, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of the neonatal nurses who have taken care of our babies when we were unable to be there. As a mother, it was hard to leave the hospital without my children. What made it possible was knowing that my sons were in great hands. The nurses at our NICU worked 12 hours shifts taking care of multiple babies, each with their own medical issues ranging in severity. Babies who can’t talk and say how they feel. This is the definition of a super hero.
With the sickest of children, it takes a special person who can devote their life to taking care of these special babies. I am grateful for the angels in disguise who have taken up the task of being a NICU nurse.
