Today has me thinking. I am about to go back to the hospital to see my mother who is now recovering from brain surgery, and I guess we were always raised to thank the professionals that go out of their way to help us. I guess part of what my mother instilled in us is that, while it might be "their jobs", they don't have to put the thought and care into it that they do, and they should know they are appreciated.
I usually pull them aside individually and tell them how much I appreciate the special things that they did, and then send a thank you card later to follow up. However, this time, I don't think it is enough...they have been SO wonderful.
This doesn't necessarily have to be related to doctors/nurses, but just in general. How do you show your appreciation? What do you think would be appropriate here? If you are a doctor or nurse, what would you appreciate most?
