George Clooney is my dad

An old Welsh Terrier's baby teeth
Head lying on my chest as soon as I tumbled into bed at
8.45 am this morning
Just looked after a very very confused man all night
Which is exhausting work on a one to one
At 6 am he told me that I " looked too old to be a nurse " and added
" you look like my dad"
" is your dad George Clooney?" I said with a tired smile
" yes he is" came the reply

  2. If only you, and all the other nurses, were paid as well as the George Clooneys of this world. Your work is soooo much more valuable.

  10. Poor dear soul. At least he had the very best looking after him. Now you can sleep with your guardian angel close to hand keeping an eye on you. Hope that doggy breath isn't right in your face lol.

  12. I'm going for gallbladder surgery on Wednesday, how I wish you could be my nurse! Nevermind George Clooney....I'd love to talk about dogs and chickens and scotch eggs with you in the hospital! Feel like flying in to South Carolina to nurse a devoted fan? :). lol

    But where do you start?

  19. LOL, I take care of confused (Alzheimer's) people often, George.

  20. Please don't cry. You are not too old to be a nurse! Too absent-minded perhaps. Too disorganised - but not too old! Why I am sure you could keep going for another twenty years!

  23. I love that little exchange. I miss the funny things patients said, but I don't miss the ones who left a trail of poop on the way to the bathroom.

    Love,
    Janie

  24. This made me remember my sweet, kind dad in his last days, and I shed some tears. Age is not kind.

  25. What a funny, lovely exchange after a very long night! Bless you for the work you do! You really do deserve a rest with a sweet little dog.

  26. The only piece of George id want is his home on Lake Como. Oh, i sleep with my dog as well, or does she sleep with me. Hard to tell because between the two of us and the snoring husband none of us get any sleep. I do however, get lots of loving cuddles from a 5kg bundle of fur (no not my husband - im trying to think of a body part that would weigh 5kg) the dog - Tilly.
