Most of my patients are asleep when we’re working on them. :) I’d be really concerned if someone was awake in one of my rooms — for the most part. There is the rare occasion, and then — the patient gets to pick out the music. ;) No shop talk allowed.
I’m glad you are well and recovered. It sounds like it was a long road. May your future only hold fond memories of nurses — may you not need to actually meet any more of us in person. It sounds like you have more than filled your quota. ❤
