How flowers make our lives better
A few years ago, I wrote a blog post called “How Flowers Make Our Lives Better.”
In it, I shared the story of my family.
As a result of that post, my daughter and I have become a very strong and resilient family, and I’ve developed a new sense of optimism and purpose.
I’ve also become more sensitive to the impact of environmental change and its impact on our families.
I believe the world is changing, and that our work to help make the world a better place requires a new set of priorities.
In fact, I feel more confident that the future of our families and the world are better together than they are apart.
That’s why I am writing this article.
To me, that means I’m willing to make some sacrifices in the pursuit of a better world, and a better future is what I’m focused on.
For my family, my work is focused on a few things: How do we provide a home for my daughter in the aftermath of her brain tumor diagnosis, and how can we keep her alive in the event that she requires additional surgeries?
How can we provide our daughters with the best care and support possible, and what will it take to accomplish that?
And what will my own personal journey to healing look like as I make this journey?
My family and I were fortunate enough to have a good relationship with the health care system and have access to quality care, and our daughter was fortunate enough as well to have access and a good support network.
The challenges facing our family were not unique to our families, but rather were the result of a series of things happening across our country and around the world: the rise of a new class of pharmaceutical drugs that can potentially be used to kill us from our very first day of life; a new wave of pandemic-related pandemic outbreaks that are devastating and disruptive; a changing climate, one that is increasingly warming but not necessarily warming faster than we are; a growing number of people seeking early intervention and care at a younger age; and a new generation of doctors and other medical professionals coming to the fore in the battle against chronic illness.
I think it’s fair to say that in the last few years, I’ve been fortunate to have my work as a physician and family caregiver supported by the medical community, and this week marks my first day on the job with my new team.
This team includes people who have worked with me professionally in the past, as well as some people I’ve worked with in my career.
They’ve been working on this project for over a year, and the work has been incredibly collaborative, with all of us having input on how best to get this started.
We’ve had the support of our hospital and the state of Texas, along with our partners at the University of Texas Health Science Center, and we’re now working with the Texas Department of Public Safety to provide an expert team of caregivers to support our work.
The work will continue through the first week of October, with the goal of having all caregivers on site by then.
And we’ve also been in touch with the American Nurses Association (ANA) and our partners across the country to learn about their expertise and their role in supporting this work.
Our goal is to have caregivers at every clinic across Texas by mid-October.
It’s also important to note that we are not only bringing caregivers in from the state and the surrounding area, but we’re also bringing in our own caregivers, which means we’ve been bringing our own nurses in to help with our care.
In the first day, we’ve had three nurses come in to work with us.
So we’re bringing in a team of doctors, nurses, and social workers to support us as we move forward.
The next day, our new team of caregiver is expected to be in place by midafternoon.
That team is also expected to come in from Texas.
We have two more weeks of work ahead of us to make this a success, and with the help of all of you, we can bring our work home and make it a success.
And to give you some perspective, our team includes more than 50 people.
We are fortunate to be working with a group of doctors who are passionate about this project, and those doctors and nurses are passionate as well.
They know we’re all connected and that this is about the health of our community, which is why they are so committed to the work.
And I’m also excited about the other caregivers who are coming in and helping out.
I know that a lot of people are just overwhelmed by the attention they’ve received on social media and other places, and they are feeling overwhelmed by how much of a positive impact this is going to have on our community.
I hope you’re as inspired as I am by this new team that we have and are working to get started.
I’d like to thank my team and everyone involved in the project, especially our team of care givers and nurse coordinators.
