As a registered nurse, a former recreational pilot, an umpire who "blew the whistle" around the world, and as an insatiably curious person, registered nurse Nina Angela McKissock's memoir brings the reader into her deeply colorful, curious and creative life as a hospice nurse and world explorer. She was featured on the Spirituality Channel’s three-part television series Crossing Over: From Hospice to Heaven, has created hospital-based programs on Death and Dying and Bereavement, and was behind the effort of creating Serenity House and Hospice Support in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

Hi Robyn,

Thank you and congratulations. Just know yourself, or else you will bring all your fears, prejudices, stereotypes and "agenda" to the bedside. You must understand the difference between sympathy and compassion, helping and serving a person.
Don't worry about the "God" question. This care is about being truly human, truly loving, truly vulnerable. You will be asked to re-open YOUR wounds every time you walk into someone's room.
Make sure your personal life is full and take extra Vitamin D3 for the stress of caring.
Go live a full life!

脱酸素剤封入包装における包装材料

脱酸素剤を使用して十分な効果を得るには、包装の内部を必要期間、無酸素の状態に保つことが必要です。このための必須の条件は以下の通りです。酸素バリア性の高い材質の包装材料や容器を使用。一般的には、酸素透過量が20cc/平方m・24hrs・atm以下のフィルムが使用されます。シールを完全にして、内外部の空気の流通を完全に遮断。適性な品種、サイズの脱酸素剤を選定し、包装内の酸素を必要時間内に除去。フィルム包装の場合、酸素透過量が5~15cc/平方m ・24hrs・atmのKOP(PVDCコートOPP、20mμ)/PE(40mμ) が基本仕様です。強度が必要な場合は、同程度のバリア性のKON(PVDCコートONY)/PEやKPET(PVDCコートPET)/PEが適用されます。さらにバリア性の良好なEVOH、ナノコンポジット樹脂コートフィルムなどをバリア材に使用するとシェルフライフは長くなります。

“As Stephen Levine says, “When your fear touches someone’s pain it becomes pity; when your love touches someone’s pain, it becomes compassion.”
Nina Angela McKissock, From Sun to Sun: A Hospice Nurse Reflects on the Art of Dying

“I know my role is to walk toward death with those who are dying. But the lesson that keeps repeating itself is this: in all its odd forms, love always wins over fear.”
Nina Angela McKissock, From Sun to Sun: A Hospice Nurse Reflects on the Art of Dying

“In this country, we think of dying primarily as a medical event. It’s much more than that. It’s about relationships: to ourselves, those we may be caring for, or those caring for us. Caring for the dying can be an intense, intimate, and deeply enlivening experience. Death can be an extraordinary mirror through which we see ourselves.”
Nina Angela McKissock, From Sun to Sun: A Hospice Nurse Reflects on the Art of Dying

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: it's got to be the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.”
Andrew Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein
