Halloween has come and gone but it will not be forgotten for quite some time. Since I was working, I told my patients that I was dressed up as a NURSE, I even had on a Halloween set of scrubs. This did not fly, however, so one of my co-workers brought up a bag of costume supplies and right before shift change we all dressed up and gave our patients a real laugh. I'm not sure how the patient's families felt as this was in the middle of visiting hours, but oh well, it was Halloween.
Here are some of the pictures for your enjoyment!
Won't you comment and maybe even send me pictures of your Halloween costumes?

like anyone, anywhere can become diabetic. I know that we need to treat
these people as we, ourselves, would want to be treated.
