Nursing is among the most under-appreciated professions in our society. They are often considered “less” a doctor, and only capable of grunt works and know nothing of what is going on.

Mom Confused After Waking From Surgery. What Nurse Does Next Leaves Daughter In Tears

They have to deal with bodily fluids and difficult patients (and their family members), but still do so happily and willingly, knowing they wouldn’t receive much thanks. But not everyone looks down on them. Megan Smith knows just how special and important the nurses can be.

When Margaret, Megan’s mom had to go in for surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Megan was able to see firsthand the love and care the nurses showed her mother. And one nurse stood out to her, especially.

Olivia Neufelder is a nurse in the Vanderbilt’s Surgical Transplant Unit, and she is an incredibly special one, as you will soon know.
After Margaret waking up from the surgery, the lasting effects of the medicine and anesthesia took a toll on her, making her incredible. She was confused and emotional. Without a second thought to the long list of duties on her hands that day, Olivia sat down and sang “Dancing in the Sky” – one of her favorite songs – to Margaret.

As she did, no one in the room could hold up their tears, not even Olivia herself!
Touched by the love Olivia had shown her mother, Megan shared a video of the sweet moment on Facebook.
Megan wrote “You never left her side by choice!!”

“Words cannot describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel!” She continued. “Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen, you truly are a beam of light and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother. God bless you Olivia!”

The video eventually made its way back to Olivia, who said she was just as touched by the interaction as they were.
“Miss Marg has touched my heart in such an indescribable way. I am so humbled and honored to be a Nurse. My thoughts and prayers are forever with this amazing family.” Said Olivia.

The love Nurse Olivia has shown to her patients has touched our hearts so much, we couldn’t say it any better than family member Crystal Hamilton Roberts:
She wrote “Vanderbilt nurse Olivia is the best nurse ever, a God fearing Young Lady that takes time to care and love her patients. The best example of what a nurse should be.”
“If all nurses would take the time and Care for patients like Ms. Olivia,” she continued, “I believe we would see a lot more healing.”

The White House said the move will “facilitate a culture of life.”

House Passes An Abortion Ban After Letting Children’s Health Program Expire

A bill was passed by House Republicans that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy ― a move said by the Trump administration that will “help to facilitate a culture of life.” It comes three days after the Congress allowed a federal children’s health program to expire, potentially leaving millions of poor children without insurance coverage.

The abortion bill passed by the House would shorten the time for a woman can legally seek abortion, based on a medically-unsupported claim that at 20 weeks, fetuses can feel pain. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, authored an op-ed on the anti-abortion website LifeNews.com on Monday touting the legislation.

“All of us—Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—can agree that the government has a vested interest in protecting the rights of children,” stated Goodlatte, “and that should include unborn children after 20 weeks.”

Yet the deadline to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which helped states provide insurance coverage to 9 million children in low-income families, was missed by Republicans in Congress.
A bipartisan 5-year bill to renew the program was put forth by the Senate, but the vote wasn’t scheduled in time, instead the legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare was prioritized. The House did not even propose a bill to reauthorize CHIP, which shall expire at the end of September.

On Sunday, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y) tweeted “Republican gridlock has put 9 million children at risk, this is unacceptable.”
Democrats also pointed out the hypocrisy of Congress and the president doing nothing to address gun violence, which resulted in the death of 12,000 American just this year alone. The abortion vote comes just one day after what was considered the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history, in which a man with at least 20 rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas.

In this country, there have been 521 mass shootings out of 477 days, and the U.S. has by far a much more imminent theat of gun violence than any other developed nation, but the 26 bills that would address gun violence in different ways are all currently languishing without a vote by the Congress.
On Tuesday morning, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said on the House floor “If we had an outbreak every day that had over 100,000 people a year killed and injured, Congress would be in a frenzy,” He added. “Yesterday we found two minutes for a moment of silence, and we moved on.”

Meanwhile, bodies count is still accumulating in Puerto Rico’s morgues as the Trump administration lags in its response to the Hurricane Maria disaster. The death toll in the past week from the storm hasn’t been updated by the Official, but horrific conditions are being reported on the ground ― hospitals running out of fuel and supplies, cancer patients missing chemotherapy treatments, mothers begging for water for their babies.

“It’s tantamount to Mother Nature’s atomic bomb, and we’re doing very little,” Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), who chairs the Congressional Hispanic Caucus pointed out in asking her colleagues to expedite aid to the U.S. territory last week.

Trump criticized Puerto Ricans for not doing more to help themselves after the devastating hurricane and lamented the logistical challenges of providing aid to the island. But lawmakers’ acting on abortion was applauded by the White House.
On Monday night, the White House released a statement “The Administration strongly supports the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and applauds the House of Representatives for continuing its efforts to secure critical pro-life protections”.

The legislation passed the House by a 237-189 vote, but it is very unlikely to become law because it lacks the needed 60 votes to make it through the Senate. Tuesday, Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said the bill is “dead on arrival” and excoriated her colleagues across the aisle for prioritizing it.
“Is the House working on helping families who have lost their loved ones and livelihoods in Puerto Rico? No,” she went on. “Are they answering the calls from moms and dads nationwide who want to know when Congress will finally act on gun control? No.”
She added “There is never a good time for politicians to try to tell women what they can and can’t do with their own bodies,”
“But the House Republican decision to prioritize politics right now — of all times — is irresponsible and out of touch to a new extreme.” Sen. Patty Murray concluded.
