Now, a tribute.

So, I’ve been working on the inpatient psychiatric unit for about a month now and I’m really enjoying it. I have kept my outpatient load and hours at the HIV clinic, so my time is divided, but so far so good.

One of the nice things about working on the inpatient unit is the sense of teamwork. And the members of my team are all talented, caring, knowledgeable, funny, hard-working, and supportive people. I really feel fortunate working with them.

One of the most treasured members of our team is Mayor. He’s a seeing-eye dog and offers me pet therapy every Friday afternoon when he’s allowed to be out of harness (AKA on a break) for a few minutes.

Isn’t he CUTE!!!!!!

    He’d be cuter if he were a bulldog. Too bad there aren’t seeing eye bulldogs, but they’d probably be too lazy to go anywhere.

  15. Now that’s my idea of a co-worker! My husband and I have cats to supervise our work. How did we ever get things done BF (Before Feline)? πŸ™‚ I’m glad to be a new follower.
