Four years ago, our journey began with kidney failure. My brother-in-law was admitted to the hospital, and Kristy came into the room. She treated him like he was her family member. That visit ended, and we left all of his medications. My phone rang, and a sweet voice said, "I am in your yard." After working for about 14 hours, she delivered what we left behind.
There were many more visits to the Renal floor over the next four years, and even if Kristy wasn't our nurse, she came to visit him. Recently, he was admitted once again, and my phone rang. Kristy's sweet voice asked if I knew who this was, and I said, "Of course." She explained to me what was happening.
When I arrived, Kristy greeted me with a hug. She knew this was the last visit my brother-in-law would make to the Renal floor. We are making our journey to the Hospice House. Our lives have richly been blessed by Kristy. She goes above and beyond her nursing profession. My heart will forever be changed and blessed to have met this angel on earth. McLeod has a jewel.
