With a lot of stress and questions, a wonderful nurse named John Rogers came in. He talked to B about the question he had.

B came into the hospital for what we thought was going to be a routine upper and lower GI.  Not so much!  While doing the upper his heart went into a-fib.  They also found fluid around the heart and a spatter of blood clots in his lungs.  They admitted him to the hospital.

With a lot of stress and questions, a wonderful nurse named John Rogers came in.  He talked to B about the question he had.  Later he came back to tell B he was going off duty and to see how he was doing and that he would see him tomorrow. 

The next day John came in, pulled up a chair and they talked about B's condition.  As B put it, they chit-chatted. 

John was very caring and friendly, although all the other staff on the 6th floor is awesome, B felt John went about the call of duty.

Thanks, John, from B and myself.  I saw some of the stress and after you talked to him it was relieved.
