Thank you so much to all the nurses and doctors at @cedarssinai for all you are doing for everyone at this moment. You took care of me so graciously, and I never got to see one of your faces! I got to go home, but you are still going in every day and putting yourselves in the middle of all the chaos. Much love and gratitude to you all, and to all the people still going into work in order to look after the rest of us. #heroes 💞 Ps - I did not test positively for Corona thankfully, although I have another virus (of course i have to be different!🙄) which is going to take some time to go. Take care of yourselves, and check in (by phone!) with someone on their own. Perhaps an elderly person who might need an extra friend. #spreadthekindness #allone #allinthistogether #checkinwithothers #covid_19 #coronavirus
