This improvement may be coincidental but she does have a different nurse today. This one actually has a personality and talks to you and tries to find out how you are doing. It's been thirty minutes since I got here and she has already seen Elsa more times than the other one saw her yesterday. I am glad for that. All patients really want is to go home, and Elsa does not really ask for much, so I could not understand the philosophy of the one she had yesterday. I think nurses have a very difficult job and they deserve all the recognition they receive and perhaps even some that is never given them. This makes me think that not everyone should become a nurse. If you are not interested in helping people, you should not become a nurse. Those that violate this and do go into nursing do everyone, themselves and their patients, a great disservice.
For now, I am just glad that Elsa is doing better and that you all continue to comment. It makes her feel a lot better.
