A Candy Survival Kit


So I am mourning the loss of a really great
co-worker at my job. As a Physician Assistant I have
worked with a LOT of docs in my 13 years. Some good, others great. ML was beyond OUTSTANDING.

A wickedly smart critical care doctor 
with a great heart, she taught me a lot and is
probably one of the smartest people I have ever known.

Next to myself that is.....

When I wasn't planning her demise for leaving me, I
created a survival kit to take on to her next job. 
Here it is....



HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR NEW JOB AWAY FROM
FUN AND AWESOME PEOPLE LIKE ME……

Always remember the following:

1.       EVERYTHING YOU DEW, YOU ‘dew’ SO WELL

2.       YOU ARE ONE HECK OF A SMART COOKIE

3.       EVEN THOUGH I AM A NERD, YOU NEVER MADE 
ME FEEL LIKE A DUM DUM

4.       IF YOU EVER WANT TO CALL ME FOR ID QUESTIONS, 
I PROMISE I WON’T SNICKER

5.       WORKING WITH YOU WAS ALWAYS GOOD FOR A FEW  LAFFS


6.       ON BEHALF OF ALL THE PATIENTS YOU HAVE SAVED, 
THANK YOU FOR BEING THEIR LIVESAVER

7.       I HOPE YOUR NEW CO-WORKERS AREN’T A BUNCH OF GOOBERS

8.       WITHOUT YOU IN THE ICU, I AM SURE TO BECOME A 
BIG KRABBY PATTIE


9.       HAVING YOU LEAVE  REALLY SUCKS  
AND PRETTY MUCH BLOWS

Best wishes on your new adventure!  
I am sure you will be a ROCK star. 
Success will come for you no matter what you do in life because you understand that the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little EXTRA!

Mournfully Yours,
TS

Trish this is such a wonderful *farewell* package and I love everything in the note that goes with it. I'm sorry that you have to say goodbye to such a fabulous co-worker and friend. I guess to can take some comfort in knowing that an entire new group of people will have the pleasure of working with her.

Can you come work with me? I'm always the one taking in treats, so I'd love to have someone make me a Teachers' Survival kit!
Maybe that's something I can think up for next year...
