Ever since he met Jessica, Philip Urtz has been in love. And his dreams came true the day that Jessica agreed to marry him. Now Philip lives with Jessica in Rome, New York. And he could not be happier or more proud of her. At home, Jessica is the model wife, but when she is out of the house at work, she helps save lives as a dedicated nurse to emergency room patients.
Philip knows, intimately, how stressful Jessica’s job is. She tells him all the details she can without violating any confidentiality. Not only does she deal with emotionally difficult situations, but the job is also itself exhausting. And she never wants to show her patients how tired she can be, but her husband knows. Oh, he knows.
Every day, Jessica comes home utterly exhausted from giving her all with her patients. She wants them to get better, so she gives them all of her energy.
After one particularly tough, 14-hour shift, Jessica came home and made herself a sandwich before going to sleep to do it all over again. That’s when Philip decided to pen an open letter to his beloved wife and share it with the world on Facebook.
“This is my wife Jessica having dinner after a 14-hour day. She comes home from work, has enough time to eat and get ready, and it’s back to work the next day for another shift. She is up early to get ready for her day. She doesn’t like to be bothered in the morning, and I respect that. She showers, throws her hair up, grabs her lunch, gives the dog and me a kiss and heads out the door.”
Philip writes, “At work, she takes care of people who are having the worst days of their lives. Strokes, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, breaks, brain damage and more. She takes care of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and families. It doesn’t matter who you are or what happened. She will take care of you.
“She works through lunch and rarely has time to sit. She comes home after 14 hours, takes off her shoes that have walked through blood and tears, and just wants to sit down. I don’t ask her about her day because she doesn’t like to talk about work when she is home, and that’s fine. If she does want to talk, I will listen. Sometimes she comes home happy and sometimes she comes home sad. But no matter how she feels, she is always on time for her next shift.”
“I love her with all my heart. My wife is my hero. My wife is a Stroke Nurse.”
Obviously, Philip is grateful that his wife takes on the challenges of her job with so much gusto and passion. She’s a natural-born helper, someone who heals other people and puts her needs second. At least she has a husband who is willing to recognize all that she does and honor her struggle to be the best woman she can be.
