American Laura McIntyre and her sister Kathy both share a similar appearance and were born on the same day, May 11, 1990. The only thing remarkable about this is that the girls are identical twins, of course.
According to Laura, her sister and her have a “unique relationship.” We work on nearly everything together, and we chat all day. Sometimes, our husbands don’t even comprehend the necessity for them. Oh, and it’s only a mile between us.
Although they are together most of the time in their free time, the twins’ lives are extremely different when they are at work. The truth is that Katie picked a very challenging career for herself: she is a nurse in a hospital’s maternity department.
She did not pursue nursing as a career out of a childhood dream like our parents did. She chose to attempt one day. She also started attending nursing classes when she recognized that this was what she was meant to do: assist in childbirth.
Laura thinks her sister really is a heroine.
Katie has consistently handled the most demanding circumstances. Although she does occasionally have breakdowns, she generally carries herself extremely nicely, which is a large part of why she is such a great nurse.
But the challenging times and breakdowns that Laura discusses are a necessary component of a medical worker’s job. And this is just what the girl chose to emphasize by sharing a unique snapshot of her twin with the world.
Laura published a post on Thursday, October 10 that starts like this:
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the nurses even if she’ll kill me for taking this picture.
The child described how being a nurse physically and mentally exhausts people in the newspaper, using her sister as an example. and displayed Katie’s appearance on one of her worst days ever. Katie just finished her fourth consecutive shift.
Not considering the 1.5 hours she spends each day in the car, that equals more than 53 hours in four days. She frequently lacks the time to eat and drink enough water, not to mention that she must dress like a dove.
She is so skilled at what she does that she frequently neglects to care for herself in between treating people.
When she came to my house on a July night after a particularly trying day, this picture was shot. She gave birth that day, but the child was already deceased. Have you ever questioned what the maternity ward nurse sees? They do rejoice when the birth goes easily and both the mother and the child are in good health.
However, they also witness the mother’s terror and anxiety when a caesarean section must be performed. When mothers receive assistance from their loved ones, they notice peace; nevertheless, not all mothers are like that. They witness teen pregnancies and the withdrawal symptoms that children of drug and alcohol addicts experience upon childbirth.
They observe representatives of the child protection service approaching them. And they observe mourners leaving the funeral. Did you know that the nurses work with the funeral home to arrange for the arrival of the funeral home’s staff to pick up the child? That is what I was ignorant about.
Laura concluded her article by saying:
Cathy, you are SPECIAL, as are the other nurses. You do more than you realize to assist patients and their families. I appreciate everything you do.
The image and words received more than 150,000 likes in just a few days. People also add that nurses truly deserve such praise.
