Message: I am nurse at Hebrew Health Care. I work 3-11 shift on 2-South where Sylvia was a resident. I have cared for her for 4 1/2 years. I was there through the many stages of her life and I am very sorry that I was not there for the end of her life. I fondly remember her committment to no drugs or treatments. It was always a challenge to find ways to get her cooperation. What seemed to work best was to agree with what she said but give it back to her. One day she said to me "You are a pain in my 'butt'". I replied "Yes, I am. But my 'butt' is bigger than yours so I am the boss here". This made her laugh and I was able to continues my care of her that day. Sylvia always told it like it was. That helped you realize what was really happening with her and the rest of the unit. Bonnie told me that there is wedding for the family in September. In some ways Sylvia's passing before the wedding will free family's mind to focus on the new family that is being created. My sympathy to all during this sad and joyous time for the family.
