Farewell Doctor Rosie

Good evening to all my fellow bloggers. 

You are all probably wondering about the strange title of my post...
Previously I have shown you birthday/Christmas cards that I have made for our
wonderful G.P. She is only in her early 30's, and told us to call her Rosie. However,
because we are of an older generation, and I as an ex Registered Nurse (Sister), wished 
to show her the respect of using her correct title, we came to the compromise of calling
her "Doctor Rosie", which she loved. About 6 weeks ago her secretary phoned us to 
say that she was leaving the Family Practice, and wanted to see us before she left. 

We were bereft at the prospect as she has been much more than 'just' our G.P. over
these past few difficult years. We realised that she felt likewise because she asked
her secretary to book us as her last patients and just spent some time sitting and
chatting with us. At the end of our 'appointment', she hugged us both, and she
and I shared quite a few tissues. We wish her much success...she deserves it!

This is the card I made her to say "Thank You".

and good luck.
