Gratitude - Day 27

Today I am grateful for the inspiring Gillette patients I am honored to meet and work with. One of them is a 10 year old double amputee. Many of you may have seen Nick Nelson on KARE 11. He is quite an amazing kid. How lucky am I (and the other Gillette employees) to know him and his family!! He instantly brings a smile to my face. One day I was giving a sponsor tour of the hospital. We entered the area that makes Nick's prostetics, and there was Nick himself. I said hello and introduced the group to Nick. Nick helped me out and pretty much gave my tour for me! I think I owed him part of my pay check that day. You can see Nick on the NBC Today show this Monday morning... probably around 8:20 AM. He is also expected to be featured in a Today show evening special on Monday night.

Take a look at the KARE video by clicking above. Look at his prosthetics - see our Children's Miracle Network logo on them! Pretty cool. I have also provided a link to Nick's Caring Bridge website.

Thank you to the wonderful Gillette patients and their families who include me in their lives! Today I had a message from a Gillette mom. She was returning my call to her, but of course went on to share her blessings with me!

I am glad to have found Gillette and also to have met you! Through all the tough times, the hard days, and the painful moments...I give thanks that Gillette is trying to help me out. I feel so special going there, and I feel like they focus so much on me and who I am, not just my health problems.

It will be a sad day when I get the boot and will have to find a new doctor.
