I was at home with my mother who is an extraordinary nurse and she gave me the care I needed she stayed with me everyday and every night from four A.M. throw ups to me crying out in pain she was my rock and I can honestly say that if it wasn 't for her I wouldn 't have made it. Aside from the at home support even though last year was the big senior year coming back to school was easy I wasn’t paying tuition or dorm rooms I came back and made up the necessary work to graduate without it being stressful, I believe if it was now or in a year or two it would have been really hard to come back from a month and a half hospital stay. It was a tough event but the time of it all really was
One of the most significant days in my life so far was the day that I got to watch open heart surgery in person. More specifically, a triple coronary artery bypass graft, also known as “CABG”.

They have been so positive, helpful, and I feel like we all learn from each other. I just hope that I am able to keep up and stay with this group of individuals because I am not sure I would be as successful if it weren’t for the bond we have developed these past nine weeks. I once heard some of the best friendships you will ever have will be made in nursing school and I can definitely see that already with a few. I am sure by graduation day we will all be crying tears of joy and sadness since we did it but will no longer be together. This quarter has been a rollercoaster of emotions, mostly good, and I look forward to what next quarter brings.
