Wow, I am a proud daughter of a nurrse who served her patients dutifully by day and by night for 20 years, and then took voluntary retirement to take care of her family.
I love your choice for 'N'

Lily Hydrangea said...

I am a proud niece & friend to two nurses. They are like angels. I'll never forget what a group of them did for me after my son was born.
what a cute bear!

I'm a proud parent of a registered nurse in Oregon. My son is an Oncology nurse and I am so proud of him too.
Nice choice for the letter N.

Merle said...

Dear Bear ~~ Most Nurses are really wonderful and do a marvellous job. You must be a very proud parent of a R.N.
Thanks for your comments and I am so glad you enjoyed the story of Kevin.
It was a nice story and a pleasure to pass it on to my friends. Take care,
Love, Merle.

i just love cuddly Nurse Nancy! nice choice for the N. Nurses really do make a difference in this world. what will we do without them? my N is now up too!

Aileni said...

Nurses are the mainstay of any health system and at least as important as doctors. I am biased having worked with both and married a nurse. I have known many indifferent doctors but offhand can't think likewise of nurses.

antigoni said...

You're unbelievable! All these teddy bears! Great post!

RuneE said...

A teddy as a nurse would have been just wonderful!!

Rinkly Rimes said...

At first the illustration wouldn't 'come up'! I was glad when your nurse-bear popped into view. What sex is he/she? I see male clothes but a little ribbon!

naturglede said...

Beautiful nurse:))))

earthlingorgeous said...

Awww! What a cute Nurse bear. Can you be my nurse too! Great N post!

Reader Wil said...

Thanks nurses in this world for all the great things you do to the people who are sick and often sad.
Great post!

Mental P Mama said...

We would be nowhere without our nurses...great N!

kenju said...

I, too, will be the parent of an RN, come the spring of 2010!

AphotoAday said...

Well, if you raised a daughter who became a nurse, then I'd say you definitely did something right during her upbringing...

Miss_Yves said...

Nice nurse,
and great job!

Didn't think of N for nurse!! Well done :)

richies said...

What would we do without nurses.

Adventure girl wanna be said...

Nice N post! Hugs back!

Liz said...

What would we do without them?

I love your oddities too. I'm with you on the parallel parking and the tucked-in sheets. I'm also not keen on turning left (or rather it's right here).

Your blog is so fascinating, always full of informative stuff, yet always introduced by a very sweet little theme bear. You do such a wonderful job. I enjoyed your nurse!

Moannie said...

I do so love your bears. Do you dress them yourself? Where do you find them? Do you get Bears for Christmas.

A good nurse is worth ten bad interns.

Winnie the poohi said...

ah mamma bear :D :D

umm i love teddies too!

Love your choice of "N"

but i love the bears with floppy ears at the end of the post more ...

splummer said...

Hi!
Nancy the nurse is cute! Love your posts using your bears. I have a sister who is a RN and another sister who is a LPN Nurse. One is an emergency trauma nurse the other works in a retirement home. Nurses are the best. Take Care!!

D Herrod said...

Wonderful as usual and great tribute to nurses.

Midlife Slices said...

My nephew is a nurse and I admire anyone who chooses that profession because it sure isn't for me. Glad people like your daughter ARE those kind of wonderful people.

Thanks for the linky the other day. You are a sweetheart :)

Ink and Stone said...

Very nice write-up for 'N'! My sister is a RN in Delaware (USA) and she recently became a trauma registrar.
I'm proud of her, too!

Darlene said...

Nurses are the hardest working and most under-appreciated members of the medical profession. Hats off to all of them

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" thanks you for tipping your hat to the Nurses! ("Louis's mother and her sister were both nurses, and his brother is also a Registered Nurse.)

Sailor Girl said...

LOL! And this is the Nicest bear I have ever seen!! LOOOL!

mannanan said...

Cracking N. Yes where would we be without nurses. The caring profession.

Daryl said...

leslie said...

Nurses never lose their patien(t)s! My sister's a nurse and I know it's a wonderful profession.

Dragonstar said...

What a lovely post! Nurse Nancy is very smart.

nonizamboni said...

Perfect "N" word and congratulations for parenting someone who has such a vital job!
Hope your week is good.
Happy Wednesday!

Jay said...

My Mum was a nurse, and I have a lovely photo of her which I thought about using for 'N', but I felt I should ask her first and it was way past her bedtime.

I think you can be very proud of your daughter!

Dave said...

Nurses make our day, every day!

starnitesky said...

Nurses always work so hard, you are right to be a proud parent.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

What a proud mother you must be. Oh and I always wondered where Nurse Nancy came from. Now I know. Ontario!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Nicest nurse. Need nurses.

Neva said...

A very great "N" post....my two sisters are RN's.....Congratulations on being a parent of one!

Wendy said...

Congratulations Nurse Nancy!

ChrissyM said...

Nurses are the backbone to our healtcare providers. The nurse is so cute. I love boyds bears.

haleyhughes said...

That nurse looks like she has a friendly bedside manner. She'd make any visit to the doctor easier. Nice "N" interpretation.

Rose said...

Great idea for "N". You should be very proud of your daughter; nurses play such an important role in our health care system and are ofen underappreciated, not to mention underpaid!
Thanks for the suggestion on "No good ideas":)

DD said...

WOW! Excellent N post!! Thanks for the blog comments!

Baino said...

My goodness look at your comments! My mother was a nurse. Actually Bear, I was almost going to post about the remarkable work they do after watching one of those "Medical Emergency" shows last night. They are underpaid and overworked but valued by their patients. It's more a vocation than a job I think.

Island Rambles Blog said...

you have so many comments today, I think the room is full, perhaps I will come back on a quiet day and we can have a cup of tea together and talk about nurses and how important they are....

Alan said...

A Noble Nurse.

I thought of you when we were at the museum with all the Teddy Bears. There is a large collection of them. I'll post some more photos I took of the other bears tomorrow. I only got one of the giant one's in today. :)

And of course, the big one didn't attack me. He was quite friendly and just as cuddly as, well, a teddy bear. :)

Rob (Inukshuk Adventure) said...

What a beary nice post about the angels of the health care system.

Columbo said...

Great posting for ABC Wednesday "N". My niece is pursuing the same career at Concordia in Portland, OR. Nice photo.

peppylady said...

Nurses are a very important part of our lives plus they work very hard.

Thanks for stopping by and the coffee is always on.

TSannie said...

Neat tribute to your nurse and to the school. I'd say that's a perfect N post!

kml said...

Love the little blue bow on the ear! Way too cute!

Kim from Hiraeth said...

I have a special appreciation for RNs as my middle son has been hospitalized many times. They are worthy of our thanks and praise!

spacedlaw said...

The nurses were demonstrating in the streets of Rome last Thursday! The pay is horrendous and they are nevertheless doing a tremendous job.
