I've shared with you guys before that Amazing Boyfriend is going through chemotherapy and he's currently being treated at the VA hospital in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
Going through the military hospital system is not the easiest thing in the world. There are long waits for everything from appointments to waiting at the pharmacy to get prescriptions. The only thing that seems to make it worth while at all is the nurses in the outpatient chemo unit.
They are AWESOME!!!
Each and every one of them! They are often understaffed and overbooked, but they never let you feel like you are any less important then the next patient. They remember little things about you, want to know how you're doing and always have a good joke for you.
I wanted to make something for these awesome ladies that have been taking such good care of ABF, but have been coming up blank for good ideas. But awhile back, on Pinterest, I found a really cute little idea that was perfect.
(And super easy!)
I got several bottles of hand sanitizer, one for each nurse, and carefully peeled the labels off each one. Then I made an Awesome Nurse Award graphic with my Silhouette software and used my Silhouette machine to cut them out. Then using transfer tape, I applied the graphic to each bottle. Then I added a bow, to dress it up a bit.
We'll be giving these to the nurses today when we go to chemo. Of course, I wish that there was something more that I could do, but I hope these awesome ladies know that both ABF and I appreciate everything that they do for the both of us.
