To all the nurses I have known - those dedicated souls who take care of me morning, noon and night, the ones who stay by my bedside, watching over me vigilantly and making endless adjustments to maximize my health as well as comfort - to those tireless protectors who feed, bathe, change, swaddle, entertain, prod and poke me:

 a tip of the hat...
