My Morna

So, one of my favorite nurses of all time is retiring and so I took a few minutes to write about her. Anyone who has had a great Hemophilia nurse will know what I mean!

My Morna

I had the pleasure of meeting Morna about 5 years ago when I first moved to Calgary. in the short amount of time this tiny woman has made a huge impact in my life.

Morna is the one of the nicest nurses I have had in my whole life. She is kind, caring, knowledgeable and most of all she does what is best for her patients.

She is not only a nurse to the patients she sees on a daily basis but an advocate to patients with bleeding disorders all over the world.

My favorite part about Morna is that her nursing doesn't  stop at the end of her shift she can always be seen with a big smile on her face at all the Hemophilia Society events.  She's even gone as far as to make special quilts for patients when they aren't well.

After meeting Morna and seeing how great she treated me in the hospital my father and fiancee felt a lot better about me being at the clinic.

Morna has always encouraged me to do my best and to work hard. She is the one who got me involved in the Hemophilia society in the first place and now it is five years later and she still inspiring me to try and help those dealing with bleeding disorders.

As I said before Morna is always pleasant and happy but I have never seen her as happy as when she is with her granddaughter and I am so happy that she will be spending lots of time with her. Anyone who gets to be around Morna is certainly blessed.

I know I feel that way whenever I am around her.

I will never forget the kindness she has sown me as long as I live and I pray that all Hemophiliacs have a chance to have someone like her as their nurse.
