Immediately after surgery, upon arriving back on the floor, Stacey was there for me, to help settle me in and hold my hand through the pain. She reassured me that I made it through surgery successfully, and I was already on my way to recovery. Her honesty for "telling it like it was" made it into a game that I found worth taking part in. Through her clinical expertise and humor, I made it through the next few days and through the pain. Her professionalism and compassion over these days reassured me and my family that I was doing well and would heal successfully.
