I stayed for hours after my shift yesterday to be with a little girl whose daddy was dying. We coloured and sang and wandered the secret passageways of the hospital. She confided in me that she is in fact Hermione Granger, a good wizard. I made her a special wand...
She said she only uses her magic for good. She cast spells that all the sick people would get better. She cast a best friend spell on us. She stole my heart & everyone who met her.

I have never met such a special little girl & I started to believe she did hold magical powers
The whole purpose in spending that time with her was to shield her, even if only for those moments, the grief of watching daddy pass away, and allow mommy private time to be with him.
But also to keep her close by for the frequent hugs Mom would come and collect...
Late in the evening, when he did pass & mommy told her the news she was inevitably a puddle of tears. I knew our time had come to an end, and her life would be forever changed. As I tried to sneak away she ran into my arms for a hug and said, "my daddy is died"
"Yes he is sweet girl. But you are Hermione Granger! You can visit him in your dreams and talk to him all the time. You can grow up happy and brave and use your good magic to help others..."
As I was collecting my things from the back room the resident came to find me. She told me that her father died in an ICU when she was young. She doesn't remember too much. But she remembers the nurse who played with her. And then she thanked me for being that nurse today.
So that's how my day shifts played out. I have 2 more shifts to work. I'm drained emotionally and physically. But I will dig deep to find the reserves to go back for more.

And on my days off I will binge watch every single #HarryPotter movie.
