message 1: by Donna

Donna Thank you K.V. for accepting my friendship request on Goodreads. You must have a busy life as a doctor and writing books too. I, myself, am a retired nurse. I worked for over 20 years working with geriatric patients. I found this profession very rewarding. Thanks again for the friendship and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
