[Sweet Sunday] “That’s what I’m here for.”

“Don’t worry, it’s not an inconvenience at all. That’s what I’m here for. Now relax, and if there’s anything else you need, just tell me. I’ll be here all night. Are you nursing? Do you need a breast pump or want me to make you a pot of nursing tea?”

Pediatric ward’s nurse to mother staying with her 3-week old infant son, who had just been hospitalized with rsv bronchiolitis (respiratory syncytial virus).

Mother and child had been brought in via ambulance, directly from the pediatrician’s office, and mom had not been able to bring things from home. This took place around ten p.m. after all admission processes, tests and physical examinations had been finished. The nurse had not only sought and brought some food around ten p.m., but also went to the adjoining maternity ward to get postpartum maternity pads for the mother. After the latter expressed her gratitude, this was the reply.
