This is an excerpt from a letter written by patient M. Bordelon about her September 2008 hospital stay.
"I want you to know that I could never thank you enough for the wonderful nursing care you gave me for the extent of my stay in Cardiac ICU.
God was so good to me, he sent me you. You were kind, you were loving, you were caring. I know about the 'extra' things you did above and beyond the call of duty. I know you called the unit when you were off duty to check on me.
The best thing is the arrangement you and my husband had. He told me he called you every morning at 6 a.m. You helped him through a difficult time, and for this I am so very appreciative.
Those are the acts of kindness that are never forgotten. That's when I knew you were truly an angel."
