So I'm A Little Late

Yep. Me, about a year after
passing the RN Boards

No … not that kind of “late.” I mean really … I’m on a medication that totally supresses my ability to become pregnant. So seriously people (or at least those non-IF people), don’t get excited.

But really, what I failed to do yesterday was to wish all those nurses out there a “Happy Nurses Day!”

Now, in the US they celebrate a whole week for Nurses. It always starts on May 6th and wraps up on May 12th, which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale. For those of you that don’t know, Flo is considered the “Mother of Modern Nursing,” and that’s why May 12th is recognized world-wide as Nurses Day.

The good thing for me about this day of recognition for my profession? It typically happens right around the festivities surrounding Mother’s Day. And it’s a great distraction (especially at work where I spend most of my time) for me, the infertile.

The bad thing about it? Well … it’s the same reason. Because, quite frankly … most people “forget” about Nurses Day and remember THAT day instead.

Even back then, I had to be caged

Oh no … I’m not bitter. Not bitter at all!

Of course, having a whole day … let alone a whole week here in the US … that recognizes the achievements and the TLC of nurses is more than many other professions have. I swear … Hubby keeps waiting for “National Graphic Designer / Art Director Week” to happen!

  1. Oh Happy Nurses Day — that’s one of the things that I loved about my RE — they actually shooed the nurses off to lunch…it seemed truly genuine.

    Nurses are invaluable.

    Thank you.


  2. Nurses week is pretty cool. I am also a nurse, and I told Hubby some of the things the hospital did for us. He is still waiting for a Laywer’s recognition day. I suspect it is a long time coming.

  3. Happy Nurses Day! I can’t wait to join you! Just 2 more years!

    Yes, I am definitely interested in checking out the RH RESOLVE group. And grabbing a drink after would be perfect! I’m sure we’ll need one by then!

    Aren’t the meetings the first Friday of each month? So the next one would be June 6. That will be right at the end of my TWW so I should know my results by then and might be in sore need of a little extra “therapy!” Ha Ha!

  4. i remember that cage!! i saw that at royal oak!! and then I think your mom mentioned this picture!! hahaha
