A day in a life of a nurse

I would like to share you this heart warming photo.

These newborns were our patients last week. Both are baby girls. They were placed together in a radiant warmer. The baby on the right started crying. Upon stretching her arm, she felt the hand of the other baby girl, who held it tight right away. I would think it's because of the newborns's grasp reflex, but she stopped crying and slept peacefully, like the consoling baby was saying, "Don't cry, my new friend! I'm here, you're not alone." And they slept while holding each other's hands. It was a bliss! Although I am aware of the hospital regulations about not taking photos of patients, I cannot contain myself. Who could resist this rare sight? It's endearing! :)
