Better Late Than Never
As of 8:00 this evening, I have finally -- after only two years and three months -- completed the 400 volunteer hours that I would have done in seven months if I'd stayed in CPE.
Woo-hoo! Go, me! (I go very slowly, but I go.)
And tonight's shift was awesome, one of the ones where I'm in the zone and really feel as if I'm being used as an instrument of grace for patients. Those don't come along very often, so I need to treasure them when they do.
There will be more sonnets soon, I think.
In the meantime, you can imagine that exquisite creature on the right as me, eating a yummy snack from the meds room. Somebody brought in amazing homemade cookies tonight, and there were also See's Chocolates.
