Today I’m sharing a picture of my amazing, strong and beautiful mam walking around hospital only a couple of days after getting her whole left lung out because of lung cancer.
It’s been a tough few months for my mam and family, but I have to say the help, support and love from the nurses and doctors in Naas hospital, James hospital and now the Parke house nursing home has been amazing.
I honestly think that nurses should be paid whatever they want, to me they’re the most amazing, kindhearted, selfless, empathetic humans on the planet, they really are angels on earth. Having to wake up every day to care for everyone else isn’t easy, they’ve to completely park your own emotions and feelings and be there for complete strangers.
On a daily bases nurses might have to see people getting sick, crying, in pain, having fear in their eyes, being helpless and sometimes they can even witness people dying in front of them. For some patients in hospitals, nurses can be the last human beings to show them some sort of love and caring before they pass.
In my opinion nurses are being underpaid, they’re understaffed and they’re over worked. I’ve so much respect for them and what they do to keep us all happy and safe when we’re in hospitals. To every single nurse in the world, keep up the amazing work and thank you for doing amazing work.
This year we’ve held two charity days in the Academy, one was for the Irish cancer society and the other one was the Marie Keating foundation, so there was a part of me that prayed that holding them charity events would be good karma to keep my mam safe and well for her seven hour operation. My Mam has been living with lung cancer for a few years now, but it was misdiagnosed, at no fault of anyone else but when it comes to the lungs it’s usually a chest infection, asthma or pneumonia, in the end after a scan it turned out to be a massive tumour.
People might wonder why we promote a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally, but even if being healthy in mind and body can help in some small way to prevent diseases... full post on my Facebook #tpfa #cancer #fitfam #irishfitfam #positivevibes #happy #healthy #love #family #friends
