I'm so Excited!

A while back, I was reading the Dayton Daily News and they had an essay contest for "Salute to Nurses" week (or something along those lines). We have a ton of good nurses at Children's, so I cut it out and set it on my desk. I was thinking about writing something up and submitting it. I think all of the good nurses are not recognized enough and they do such amazing work. Finally, on the day of the deadline, I sat down and wrote my essay about one of Ally's favorite nurses. I will share what I wrote someday......but not today. I have to keep it a secret because they just notified me that she WON!!! Woo hoo!!!! She doesn't even know it yet. Well at least that is what the gal at the newspaper told me. They will be notifying her sometime in late April and I think they are featuring the winners in the newspaper sometime in May. So now I am super glad that I took the time to write something, because she is one top-notch nurse.

Actually, I could have written an essay on several of the nurses...really...I might just have to do this again and again. We love all of them.


  1. Oh, I hope it is who I think it is. I will not say her name, but I think I know and I'm so excited for you and her. I hope all ia well.

  2. Yay! I have an inkling, too. Although, you're right about having several great ones to choose from.

  3. Great job and also great job for Ally no more of those ugly shots. The cancer cells are running scared, that is if there are any left. The know they cannot defeat our army, so they have retreated. Keep up the good work, you are almost there. Many thoughts and prayers are coming your way.
