In praise of nurses

With Laetitia in hospital getting her heart valve fixed, I've been spending a lot of time in the company of acute-care nurses. And I'm struck by just what an amazing job they do. In the ICU it's busy and noisy 24/7, they do long shifts watching just one patient. Whatever needs to be done to keep you alive and comfortable, they'll do - no hesitation, no complaints, happy to serve.

Leah, Sophie, Steph - thanks for caring for my wife and speeding her recovery. You're amazing!
