Lisa was the only good thing about my surgery.

I had a bilateral mastectomy, and only being 30 years old, I was terrified. I knew I was going to be in pain, but never in my life did I think it would be as horrible as it was. Lisa would rub my back and tell me it was going to be okay and helped me out so much. When my pain wasn’t getting under control, she did everything she could to get me something that would even dull it a little. She even had the pharmacist come talk to me. I was in the hospital for 4 days and every time there was a change of shift, I always hoped Lisa was going to be my nurse.  She is so compassionate and sweet.  Lisa was the only good thing about my surgery.  You can tell right off the bat that she has a huge heart and really cares about her patients. She deserves all the praise in the world.
