A month ago, my mom was in the ICU with congestive heart failure and pneumonia. My Mom is my world and seeing her in that condition was torment to my soul. My Dad, my sisters and I were all exhausted... emotionally, mentally and physically. Healing is a process and unfortunately it's not always as quickly as we desire. I'll never forget the day I met Zach Hatton. I was defeated. I needed to see improvement with Mom... I'm a faith driven person and I was relying heavily that my faith would prevail. It's always in those moments of desperation that God seems to step in and take control.
I walked in my Mom's ICU room that day in rare form. I wanted answers. I needed to know where we were at with her health, what was the plan to get her better. Poor Zach was the lucky person to walk in the room. With all the compassion one could have, he took time with my sister and I and explained everything going on. He answered every one of my billion questions without getting frustrated. He educated me on ways I can help Mom stay healthy. Simply put.... he cared. He loved on my Mom and showed her sooo much compassion.... seeing it would make the hardest hearts soft.
After talking to Zach, my entire family was energized again. We felt HOPEFUL! Words can't express how thankful we are for him. I can't sing his praises enough.
This weekend Zach was awarded with one of the highest honors. The DAISY award for extraordinary nurses. I can't think of a more deserving person. CONGRATULATIONS ZACH HATTON!!! May God continue to shine favor and blessings on you for your compassionate heart.
