It's True - I CAN be Surprised

Last Friday I had plans to go out with a friend and co-worker from my days in Portage. When she suggested that I join her in her city instead of mine, I agreed with no suspicions.

I picked her up and we went out for dinner. We walked around the corner and, to my total shock, almost all of the staff I had worked with were sitting there with balloons and presents! I got a gift cert for Sears, a few independent gifts, and these beautiful flowers. I tend to think I'm a hard one to surprise. But apparently, it can be done!
It made me miss my friends and co-workers all the more. Maybe I'll go back. And then leave again. Cuz that was a darn good "going away" party.
But honestly - I miss them.

Beautiful flowers! Looks like they miss you too! There's something bonding about working together on a team through crises of various kinds -- difficult patients, emergencies etc etc. But if I know you, it won't be long before you have some very good friends at Cancer Care as well.
