Nightingale  who was born in Florence Italy  and was from a affluent family who lived in London.  She cared more about taking care of sick people so she devoted her life to improving the horrible conditions of  sick people during the Crimean War. She changed the sanitary conditions of the camps and over 2/3 of the injured patients survived due to her assistance. After the war, the Queen of England gave her a Hero's welcome and gave her $250,000. Florence started a  hospital and nursing school to train many more nurses and is still honored today. She was called "The Lady with the Lamp". 

Happy Nurse's Day! If you know any nurses ( family, friends, or clients) be sure to thank them this week by sending them a card or even some flowers. What would we do without nurse's to get our loved ones well and to give support to the families.

It's been quite the week.  I've missed about half of the national holidays, because I either didn't know about them in time, or it was too late in the day.  That was especially the case with Cinco de Mayo.

I am glad they have a special day for nurses. I saw a nice commercial on TV about it.
