    Ah, God love ya, Grace. Nothing like mixing up the rest of the world's time zones. Its 3:55 pm Thursday here. I was lazy today and just got up a bit ago. Would you guys mind taking my two dogs for a walk with the rest of the mob? Too rainy here, and they'd love an Aussie spring. Well, continue to have a lovely Friday so we'll all have it to look forward to! Oh, and please cook up enough supper for all of us - that way we won't have to cook tomorrow.

    well gracie, i have no problems you posting on your friday.
    otherwise, you could feasibly call us a bunch of discriminatory nim-wits.

    got a new hospice case yesterday- 6 yo angel of a girl w/inoperable brain tumor. she's sooooo weak and malnourished. not that i expect her nutritional status to improve but don't understand why parents haven't offered milkshakes. all they've been offering her is meat and vegetables. there's much i intend to change in her regimen. i am her primary nurse and have taken on the assigment that will require extra hours. been studying up on the specific type of tumor so i'm prepared in knowing what to expect. i generally do this w/most of my pts so i can anticipate add'l s/s and effectively manage them.

    anyway, i've been thinking about volunteering my services somewhere. anyone have any ideas for those in greatest need? i was thinking of the hiv/aids population that are dying in the hospital but it would be so hard for me not to play nurse. but that's where my 1st gut instinct went to. i welcome all ideas.

    have a great friday!

    with peace,

    Ok, it's about 2225 here, close enough to Friday for me! I am a nervous wreck right now. I spent a couple of hours in the ED with my mom tonight. She has been having upper abdominal / chest pain problems for a couple of years but nothing has ever come of it. Tonight, the NP that was on ordered a CT (God love her!). They found a mass on my mom's pancreas. Guess that's good news and bad news. Good news, we know what her problems have been. Bad news...well, you know. I feel somewhat selfish right now because I have a 9-year-old sister and 8 and 5-year-old brothers. Don't get me wrong, I don't want anything to happen to my mom for obvious reasons, but I also am worried about having to raise 3 kids. I know, I feel horrible for even thinking that way, but it's true. I love them to death and would and DO anything for them, but I dont' want to raise children yet. Their father is out of the picture, in prison 99% of the time, so it's me. There is no other family around here and there is no question I would care for them. I am just a nervous wreck and would NEVER NEVER NEVER let the state take them. Why am I thinking so negative?!?! I should try to think positive but this has been ongoing for a while and I feel guilty for not being more aggressive with my mom in getting it checked out. AAAGGGHHH!!!!
    I hope everyone else's day turns out terrific and y'all stay safe.

    super rn, what you're feeling sounds very normal, for one your age and at this stage of your life. Goodness, dh and I were married for 14 yr before we had kids, as we felt we just "weren't ready!" Please don't feel guilty for feeling what you do. You're to be commended for your honesty, and you sound like you have both feet firmly on the floor.

    Are there more tests planned for your mom? How is she feeling? Wait and see what's going to happen, and take your cues then. I'm glad you're there for your mom. Imagine what she's going through, hearing the dx. A lot of times ppl "know" what's going on, they just are afraid to get checked out. You couldn't have known by such vague symptoms that this was what it was. Don't kick yourself for not being able to foretell the future, nor for the inablility to perform diagnostic scans with your eyes and your feelings.

    Ramblings, here. sorry. Keep us posted. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
