Old Man-crush

This is not some sicko post so please don't get your knickers in a knot.

Have you ever had an elderly patient for whom your rapport was so great that you have a soft spot in your heart for them? I definitely have. Usually it's the stubborn old coot who talks about his wife as if he still is in wonderment, and the sly one who, when on transport and asked where he is, states "the elevator" instead of the typical "hospital". It melts my heart.

It's not gender based either. Sometimes the little old ladies crack you up. Like when an 89 year old talks about her sex life (ew), or when she tells you a story of her youth and how she got into trouble through her escapades.

I'm not a fan of geriatric nursing, but sometimes I do develop a little old man-crush.

Excellent site you have here. I also have a nursing blog and was wondering if you would like to exchange links with me. My blog url is http://NurseReview.Org. If you are interested please add my link and them leave me a comment so that I can add also a link back to your site. It will improve our google pagerank since we have the same niche.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,

That reminded me of my great grandpa when he was in the hospital. Thanks for the morning down memory lane.
