I work in a hospital. There are lots of upcoming changes in my program. I currently work with Veterans from WWII and the Korean war. You can imagine that these guys are getting old and becoming extinct. There might not even be a Veterans program in a few years. They are already closing units in the program and staff are having to pick new lines and it is just a mess and a lot of uncertainty. I am afraid that when I come back from mat leave my unit may close and I might be bounced into a new position.

So I applied for a position within the palliative care unit. I love palliative care and it has been a dream of mine to return to this kind of work for many years. Well I just got the call and I am meeting with the manager on Monday! I am so excited!

You could have just asked! Pardon my medical jargon! If anyone is wondering what palliative care is, I will be working with terminally ill clients (most cases Cancer) and will provide comfort and care before they pass. It is not for everyone, very emotional, but SOOOOO rewarding! I love that bed side nursing!

Wow, very cool! Yeah that definitely doesn't sound like it's for everyone. I could never imagine doing that kind of work. It's great that it's something you like and you get to do it!

Congratulations! You have my utmost respect. That seems like it would be a tough job at times and I bet it takes a special person to be able to do that
