Bobby Wesson had an incredible response after posting a picture of his wife cuddling their toddler on Facebook along with an explanation about his wife's experiences as a trauma nurse. The post has now attracted almost 800K shares and really is a must read to appreciate what nurses must go through every day.

Bobby Wesson took a snap of his wife napping with their toddler Deacon as he was getting ready for work and candidly shared his appreciation for her and her job as a trauma nurse on Facebook, giving an insight into the incredible strength that nurses have to face horror on a daily basis then go about their lives outside of work.

He wrote: "She will kiss the baby, she will kiss me and she will leave to go take care of people that are having the worst day of their entire lives.

Even after the amazing insight into Rayena's tough job, Bobby posted that she hates being called a hero. He wrote: "Those of you that know my wife know that she flinches at the word hero. She doesn't miss an opportunity to say that she is a small part of a very large team - but she is a large part of my very small team and I'm proud of her."

She sounds like a hero to us! Do you agree? Tweet us @sofeminineUK!
