Little Good Things

There are a lot of doctors here. A LOT. Between residents, fellows, attendings, floor doctors, and specialists, there are a lot of people who may stop and poke their head in to Melissa's room during the day. Her main doctor, however, is Dr. Melissa Larson. She's one of the professors of Hematology here & happens to be my absolute favourite.

All morning, doctors and nurses have been butting in while Melissa's been trying to nap. As a result, there hasn't been much napping. Dr. Larson just stopped by a couple minutes ago, but she saw Melissa napping & came over to talk to me in the lobby instead because she didn't want to wake her. It may seem like a little thing, but it's so rare that it's amazing when it actually happens.

Most everyone here is very friendly & competent, though. One of the Nurse Assistants (they call them Patient Care Technicians here) knew she was going to have Melissa today so she made sure to wear her Hello Kitty scrubs and socks.

Like I said, it's the little things.
