Memories Timeline


  1. I met Mr. Harry over a year ago at Moss, I was the RN Supervisor for the clinics and I helped him with getting an appointment to see the doctor. I started working in the chemobay last summer, so I have gotten to see him and know him much better. What a sweetheart of a guy!! He almost always had donuts or some way to thank the nurses, and always happy and cheerful. Last Monday, he was the first person in the chemobay, so I got to talk to him a while. He was so excited to tell me that he had found a cure for our restless leg syndrome! (I have the same problem for about five years now) We have had many conversations about how annoying this syndrome is, and why they couldn't find a cure or something for relief. Well, he told me to put a bar of Ivory soap (no other brand would do)under my sheets, and give it about 5-6 days. He said he did not have RLS after that, it worked!! Well, just last night I tried it for the first time, (my husband made a funny face at me!), but last night for the first time in weeks, I slept like a baby! I woke up thinking about Mr. Harry, I was looking forward to telling him what a genius he is!! I will miss him very much as I'm sure you all will. It was my blessing to have known him for this short time. Jeffrie Duberville RN
