Flowers? For me? Cool!

Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital, Charleston, S.C.

I coordinate mentoring for a lot of students on health career paths. I've been doing it for long enough that I can look around my co-workers and smile knowing how many of them started in my office.

It's very cool to watch people get their first real taste of what they want to do in life. I see that every day and it's all part of my master plan to make sure I have nurses, doctors and physical therapists who will pamper me and take good care of me when I am old and sick.

Summer is ending and it was fun to walk around checking on students who will be heading back to school soon. We tracked them down on surgical floors, ICU and coming out of last minute meetings with the nurse recruiter. We heard them talk about their day in surgery and watching a birth. Then, JD turned the tables on me and surprised me with flowers. Someone raised him right and since his Dad happens to be a Charleston blogger I thought I'd use his picture as my photo of the day. JD is returning to USC and is going to make a terrific physician.
