Reading this book, you'll laugh and you'll cry as well.
The book is humorous, but I didn't expect the ending to be... well I won't spoil it, but the book gets "real".
Reading this book, I found out that we don't appreciate doctors, nurses and others enough. They deserve our gratitude.
“I’ve not sat down for twelve hours, let alone rested my eyes, my dinner’s sitting uneaten in my locker and I’ve just called a midwife ‘Mum’ by accident.”
― Adam Key
Next time you / I go the hospital, ask a nurse or a doctor "Hey, how's your day been today?" with a smile on your face. The shit that they're going through is brutal, and showing appreciation is the least that we can do.
