Stories of Kindness from Around the World

✌️ All Hands On Deck 💕

My husband's recent knee placement surgery gave us ample opportunity to personally experience the kind and compassionate care of our Health Care Heroes.

From his recovery, he reflected, “Every single person treated me with compassion, with respect and kindness. To a person. From the doctors to the nurses, cafeteria staff, and orderlies. Every person.” And I agree! Overworked (hospitals are still CoVid challenged) and with workers taking on multiple roles as needed (one evening nurse was a daytime administrative assistant!), each responded to his healthcare needs with good humor and grace, even offering to bring me meals and beverages when there. *Marie and Mike - the day and night food service persons not only noted meal preferences but cooked and delivered the meals!

I tried to include everyone, from admitting clerks, food service workers to nurses, surgeons, orderlies, etc…with a Health Care Hero Karuna/Compassiona Dove Package ( https://www.kindspring.org/my/story.php?sid=212036 for more info about), explaining how the Peace Dove was made and infused with extra Peace, Love, Hope, Faith, and Healing.

“We appreciate all that you do and continue to do. We know how this continues to take a toll on you and your families. Please realize that we are so very grateful.”

My eyes would tear with gratitude as each recipient granted me the space to voice our thanks. Often they would tear too, give a virtual hug
a fist bump and share a portion of their story.

Joel, the nurse with an OM symbol tattooed on his wrist - who found meditation and peace with the CALM app, released my husband the day after surgery, with 2 folders of instructions, a few hospital logo chocolate bars, and a really awesome insulated mug :))).

With each gift, each masked smile, each compassionate act, a deeper connection was made. A closer realization that we are all indeed in this together.

As he navigates recovery and physical therapy, we are looking forward to building more bridges with those “all hands on deck!”

*A HUGE thank you to all of our kind friends and family, who encouraged and supported us with the global reach of prayers, supportive texts, and positive thoughts.
**Another bow of thanks to my sister and brother-in-law who brought us dinner this week as a show of support.

***Hotel and staff nearest the hospital that gave us a discounted medical rate, plus a delicious breakfast and warm words of encouragement.

💕 Bless you all. 🙏

I am convinced MisterM would have been hospitalized with severe CoVid affects otherwise with his breakthrough case in Sept. SD governor has stated that 90% of intensive care patients are unvaccinated. And on the front lines, health care workers are taxed to the limit with the unnecessary affects of rampart misinformation. Continued blessings to all who give their compassionate and knowledgable care to those in need.
