But those good ones. You hoard them like jelly beans at Easter. You stalk them and learn what days they work. You ask (or demand, whatever) for them as soon as you check in. You wish you could do more to show them just how much they are appreciated in this sometimes scary medical scene.
Jesse is our good one.
Cooper decided that Jesse was his buddy, and no one else would do. Even though Coop has to go get a painful shot every 2 weeks, and he gets teary just mentioning the place, I was able to get him in the door with minimal anxiety if we talked about Jesse.
We love him.
He always greeted Coop with a huge "COOOP-EEERR"! And did his best to help Coop through a scary procedure. He made sure to get the best person for blood draws, and always asked all the guys (Cooper is a bit sexist ;)) to come help hold.
But, unfortunately, Jesse is a traveling nurse and his last day was Friday. I begged him to stay, but my offer of snowy Minnesota vs. sunny Florida must have fell a tad short. ;)
Coop seemed to know something was up. He gave more hugs than usual, and snuggled in for a picture.

We will miss you Jesse! And when we get back down to Disney, we are looking you up for a visit. I think Coop may love you even more (if that is possible?) outside the hospital. :)
