Husband Pens Touching Tribute To His Stoke Nurse Wife

Phillip Urtz is a resident of Rome, New York. His wife, Jessica, is a nurse who specializes in caring for stroke patients, and dedicates herself to her job with a true desire to care for others. Like any nurse, she works long, grueling hours every day, and does it with a smile on her face (most of the time). She's always tired and overworked, but she never complains.

One night, he watched his lovely wife sitting down to dinner by herself after working a 14-hour shift. Exhausted from the long day, she hurriedly made and ate a sandwich before quickly heading to bed so that she could start the whole routine again early the next morning. 

Although you hear a lot about spouses who aren't appreciative enough of their partners, Phillip is not one of them. He loves and admires his wife's work ethic, to the point that he decided to send the whole world a message about it!

Here's what he wrote:

"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 for bed, 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 Urtz


"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."

Philip Urtz

"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."

Philip Urtz


"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."

Philip Urtz

"My wife is my hero. My wife is a Stroke Nurse."


Note: Phillip's post was inspired by Bobby Wesson, who posted a similar message a while back about his hardworking wife.
