A Fond Farewell

I resigned my position at Samaritan Albany General Hospital, effective September 29, 2007. I did so with a tremendous amount of personal anguish, primarily due to the dozens of wonderful people that I've grown to know and admire over the past 9 months.

I am starting nursing school at LBCC on Monday, the 24th of September, and just didn't feel good about having one more thing on my plate to put my heart into (namely working in CCU).

So to all of you who have meant so much to me over the past 9 months, here goes:

Nurses
(in alphabetic order): Amina, Angela, Anna, Barb, Brad, Carol, Charity, Cindy, Darcie, Dorothy, Gabi, Jennifer, Jeri, Karen, Karl, Kathy, Kelly, Kenya, Kirsten, Lanelle, Lisa, Lynn, Mel, Natalie, Phyllis, Regina, Sandie, Sharon, Sue, Susan, Tres, Wayne.

Lab Techs:
Amy, Shane, Stacy, Willy.

Respiratory Techs
: Bob, Julie, Kathy, Mary Jo, Shannon, Jay.

Doctors
: Babe, Bentson, Clark, Karami, Kaye, May, Mulkey, Rafalski, Ray, Sherman, Zollinger.

If there is anyone that I have forgotten, it's not because you are insignificant, but because my memory is. I have grown and learned so much in the past 9 months, and my heart breaks to have to say goodbye to each of you for now. I appreciate the hours you spent with me, mentoring, correcting, praising, and helping me to become a better care-giver than when I first began.

It has been my great honor and privilege to work with each of you! Please read my blog during the next few weeks and months to stay in touch with my nursing school progress. I hope to see each of you again and very soon.

Blessings to all of you, always,

doug
