Calling on allnurses prayer warriors

  1. Hi guys. Listen I need to ask all of my allnuses sibs to help me with a couple of thingss that have been weighing heavily on me. First and foremost I want all the prayer warriors to say pray for Duckie's beloved husband Jimmy. He's had MRSA on his hands for several weeks and because of ******** beauracratic red tape his treatment with IV Vancomyicin is starting tomorrow when it should have taken place weeks ago. Anyway, our Duckie is trying so hard to be brave for Jimmy, but this whloe ordeal has taken it's toll on her and she's VERY apprehesive about the PICC line that Jimmy's getting inserted tomorrow morrning. IV Vanc as you all know is extremely potent stuff, and so there is risk of a dangerous reaction to the drug once it's introduced into his system. So needless to say, Duckie is extremely anxious about this whole thing. Jimmy is her whole world, and she's scared to death at the prospect of him being in any danger, so I'm asking on her behalf t please keep them both in your prayers tommorrow,and wish Jimmy a speedy recovery once treatment is started. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You folks are wonderful. Warrior Woman.:kiss

    I have to admit that when I read this, I cried. I really think that's part of what I've been needing to do all along. Theresa will be the first to tell you I'm Miss Stubborn Britches and I try to take on the world's problems all by myself. As many of you know, the past 2 and a half months I have been ill, first pneumonia, then inner ear infection with bronchitis. I'm starting to feel like a whimp cause I feel if one more thing happens, I'm gonna fold up in a ball and cry myself to sleep. I am also worried about my bestest buddy, Theresa, so the anxiety scale is 10+ here. Jimmy fianlly got the PICC line today and they did his first Vanc, TX. Now here's a klinker for you. The facility jacked around doing the most "cost effective" things first, till here we are over a month later and the TX is just know being started. I was told they were going to go with a home care nurse. So, I assumed that meant that once a day, the LN would come and do his TX, then leave......oh no, it seems that tomorrow, I am being tained to do his treatments. Now please understand, this is my man and I would do anything to care for him but I am beginning to feel like I'm getting screwed and no kiss first. Let's see, how much to HHN's make q. hr. Am I expected to loose my sleep, lose my arrand time and work a full time job that warrents freq. OT and NOT GET PAID FOR THIS. Yep, that's cost effective alright......for them!!!!! Duckie did not just fall off the turnip truck and they can take this idea and shove it to where there is no sunshine!!!!! It wouldn't even be so bad if I had experience with PICC's but I don't and quite frankly, learning on my hubby is not my idea of giggles and fun. So, what would you do here?????? Refuse? Demand equal payment? My mouth frequently overloads my brain when I get ticked off, so please help me out here so I'll do this the right way and not make myself look nuts.....okay, maybe it's too late for that, but you know what I mean. Well ll, thanks for yur good wishes and prayers. i don't kow what I'd do without all of you. You're the absolutely the greatest.
