Owosso Nurse On The Front Lines Of COVID-19, Brings Joy To Patient With Dance [VIDEO]
Every time I read a post on social media where someone is complaining about having to stay at home, I think of all the people on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. Nurses, doctors, grocery store employees, caregivers, the list is long of people that are putting others before themselves on a daily basis.
I have quite a few friends in the nursing field, and Wesley Filkins is one of them. I saw this particular video yesterday, and immediately asked him if I could share it with you. Wes works in the COVID ICU at Memorial Healthcare in Owosso. I can't even begin to imagine what Wes sees on a daily basis.
In a situation where people may feel hopeless, Wes brings the hope - and the laughs. One of the patients Wes is caring for, bet him that he could not dance in his 'spacesuit'. When I say spacesuit, I mean the protective suit he must wear when working. As you will see in the video below, he did it. He danced like a champ for his patient. I could not love this more. Thank you Wes Filkins, and thank you to all of the people working on the front lines. You all truly rock!
