Sheryl Whaley, Nightshift RN/Neuro-Nurse
Sheryl actually went by Sheri, and she was like Linda -- over 20 years in the NICU doing nights. She loved it, usually doing 3 12-hour shifts a week. Sheri was like a swan, everything she did was fluid and graceful, and she actually did still teach ballet locally. I know I look so horrible in this picture, but with Sheri there I felt great. The funniest thing I remember was late one night she had to draw blood, and like Ames, was worried about finding a good vein. After a few moments I said "any luck?" and she said "Struck Gold!" holding up this huge syringe of blood. (Ugh, I know.) I didn't get to see Sheri much the second night she cared for me because the NICU had SIX admissions from the ER.
