I'm so proud of my daughter.  She was called in to work today, but it was a ruse.  They really wanted her to come in to give her an award.  This is what the hospital newsletter said:   "Chrystel Byrnes, a Sparrow Surgery Services Nurse, is known for her extraordinary kindness toward Patients and colleagues. She was surprised this morning with the latest Daisy Award, given to an outstanding Nurse. Chrystel (left) poses with the award with Barb McQuillan, Director of Surgery Services. Congratulations, Chrystel."

Had to share this with you.  Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

That's so wonderful! It's no surprise, given that she was raised by such a wonderful person.
