True Story: Lucky To Have Her

True story: My mother went to the doctor for a minor ailment. She was prescribed a dosage of an essential vitamin with no blood test. After a few days she noticed a loss of muscle control so much so that she fell several times, once leaving her unconscious. My sister, a nurse for over 30 years, was out of town when the incident happened. Upon her return she went directly to see my mother at home. Within a few minutes she made a diagnosis that the prescription she was given was wrong and they need to go to urgent care immediately to have it checked out. A blood test revealed my sister, the nurse, was right. My mother was admitted to the hospital for a few days to stabilize her body chemicals and is now recovering. My mom said we’re lucky to have her, your sister. Yes, and lucky she found her calling and has the confidence to make a decision and act on it, not everybody would. Some might assume the doctor was right. Often I think I can do everything myself, but the truth is I, like everyone, need experts in my life for finances, health, fitness, socialization, technical support, etc., so I can do what I do best. I honor the uniqueness in other people and the enrichment they bring to my life. We’re lucky to have our nurse in the family. I honor her and all the others that make me a more peaceful person because I don’t have to be an expert at everything. Try it, it will work for you too.
