The TMH nurse carried a journal during her time in New York, keeping track of her time fighting the virus.

Despite the struggle, she noted New Yorkers were eager to heap praise.

"You get thanked by your patients, you get thanked by your coworkers and peers, but when you get thanked by a stranger, that's something special," she said.
