Time with Family - THANKFUL

my boys and our dog....
Jimmy,  Matthew and Paul and our 5 year old Golden named Dale
Me and the boys, Thanksgiving 2012
Hi all,  been under the weather since working the weekend and the holiday so this is my first time to post since Thanksgiving Day.  I wanted to share some pics of our day.  Having my two older sons home from college was nice and short.  Now they are gone again.  It went too fast.  Our youngest is a senior in college so soon I will be empty nest.  Luckily I have a great hubby who will keep me company.  I hope everyone has a great holiday!  Here's a toast to all and a prayer for those who might need one.    Thanks for looking.....Stephanie

During Sandy

Sandy brought massive destruction to the states just North of me. I have said a prayer for all those who have suffered loss of loved ones and for the loss of homes and property. God bless all of you!

I worked the entire 3 nights of the storm in the NICU at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland. We heard about the evacuation of the NICU in New York at NYU and our thoughts and prayers went immediately to the staff. What we were hearing was that the babies had to be hand carried down 9 flights of stairs in the dark into waiting ambulances, all while Sandy was flooding the streets! Wow! I can't imagine having to move our 45 babies under those circumstances! I know we are trained to do it but it seems so crazy. Here are some pictures that made me proud to be a NICU RN!

Nurse Margot Condon cradles a preterm baby during the evacuation.  No incubators, no heat except from Margot.


AMAZING!
