  34. I made a list on my phone of all the nurses I could get the name of during my 2 week stay over a year ago! And, I still have it on my phone. Sometimes I could only remember their first name or last names. Unless they wrote their name on my daily board, I had to guess at spelling. I will blame it on pain meds and COVID masks for that lack of name. I know there are some names of nurses and staff I missed, but I remember they were there. But, they were all caring and many of them memorable. I should have made them all write their names down in my phone list for correct names. – A.H.S.
  35. Nurse appreciation list. I was admitted to Walter Reed for about 2 weeks. By the time I was dismissed many of these medical care takers were changing shifts and rotating to different units. So, I did not get to say a proper farewell and THANK YOU to most of them. And, I wanted to share the names (limited, misspelled or missed all together). Some were civilians and some were in uniform. How I remember their names do not always reflect that. And, How I remember them is often based on our conversations or brief moments with them: They were all having to wear COVID masks all the time. So that often left me to recognize them by their voice, hair style or head covering. Over a year has passed since my surgery that had MANY and strange side effects, which is why I was there for so long. 1. Papa Joe (he was so comforting and assuring that I WOULD get better), 2. Liz, 3. Emily, 4. Anne Olson, 4. Gladys (a nursing student and SO very caring and gentle. She held my hand when I cried), 5. Udo, 6. Adora, 7. Nina Beck (even if she was not my nurse on duty, she often answered the call bell). 8. TJ Wards, 9. Swoope, 10. Nurse De Silva (We had some great conversations), 11. Angela (she sang and hummed while she did her work), 12. Hakeem (I’m sure I’m remember[ing] the name wrong). 13. Yesuf 14. Fontaine 15. Bonds 16. Tabugbo 17. Tran 18. Amanda 19. James 20. Haja (another name that I think is not complete) 21. Goodman 22. 2nd. Lt. Ray Brenner . THANK YOU for all your care during my long and strange hospital time. You are not forgotten and are much appreciated. – A.H.S.
  36. They are GOLDEN (insert flag, red heart, and praying hands emojis)! – E.M.
  37. Healing hands of the nurses at WRNMMC. – A.M.
  38. Love all the nurses, especially the ones I speak to when they call the Surgical Waiting Room. Hugs from Mama Baer, Red Cross Volunteer. Special hugs to the nurses that took care of me in January 2013. – V.B.
