Very sad...

Ok so as most of you know I just got done with my Med/Surg rotation.  For the first 3 weeks we had one instructor & for the last 3 weeks we had another.  Well this morning I found out that the instructor I JUST had passed away this weekend.  I am so shocked and saddened by the loss.  She was a GREAT instructor.  She only taught clinicals and she did it so well.  As you all know Med/Surg has been our "bane", but she made it not only bearable but completely fun.  I was honored to have her as my instructor and was better off for it. 

It is so crazy to think that such a vibrant, hilarious woman, who seemed completely healthy, could just so suddenly be gone.  It is a shock to say the least.  We had a really great rapport and I hope that she knew how much I respected her. 


  1. I'm so sad to hear about your instructor...yet, what a great reminder for each of us to live each day to it's fullest since we never know when it will be our last. Hang in there during this time of loss...

    1. Thanks, it was just so unexpected. Her daughter is in her 20's & had recently had a baby whom she dearly loved, so sad.
