Good Friday Morning 03/11/05

  1. Thought that I would start this a little early as I have to be out of the house by 5 am to meet Ying's flight................

    So excited to see her, Sabrina and Austin will be quite happy to see her, also. They used to see her all of the time at my home and at the school....

    Hope to be able to get to the casino for Seafood night tomorrow and to the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning...........Strawberry season will be beginning over here in the next week or two, can't wait.....

    Have a great day..................

    Suzanne . . sounds like a nice day.

    I came home from work and read the paper and my inlaws brought my toddler home. I used the tv as a babysitter and let him watch about 2 hours of cartoons while I snoozed. He was sitting next to me and would wake me up every 20 minutes or so.

    Lost a patient right a shift change . . .funny how the family always comes out, and they aren't quite sure and so they ask you to check but as soon as you walk in the room and see the patient, you see death. He went peacefully surrounded for days by loving friends and family. My husband knew him - old logger.

    I'm tackling a large pile of bills and then have to get to bed because my daughter has a softball tournament 2 hours away for the next two days and I'm taking my 3 year old.

    Tomorrow starts my 8 days off. I'm more than ready.

    Happy Friday!

    Hi! Floated off the unit to medical-oncology and then floated back for the last 8 hours. Needless to say I'm behind and shouldn't even be here, but I need a break. Have a great day!

    What is the status of patients in medical-oncology Tweety? I have been taking care of a woman who had major surgery for rectal cancer and has a colostomy but is doing fantastic . . great attitude, walked outside today, only had 4 mg morphine X2 .. amazing recovery.

    Bills are almost paid . . .sheesh, our phone bill is over $200 but that includes $50 a month for DSL!! We are ripped off up here in the mountains - held hostage to only one way to get DSL service and that is through our phone company.

    Ok, I'm starting to get shaky I'm so tired. .. off to bed.

    Good morning to all! Just joined the premium so thought I would jump right in. This is my last night off from a 4 day stretch, which was much needed. I had to be a day time person for Thursday, so made myself stay up when I got off work so I could sleep that night, you know the drill. Of course, I woke up at 3 am on Thurs and had to drag around all day, then passed out on the couch for 2 separate naps, now am wide awake in the middle of the night. Just love the body clock that goes with night shift!
    Have a great Friday!

    Hi Scarlett! Nice to see you posting here!

    Steph, I didn't have any oncology patients in my group, just medical. Good patients, respiratory, HIV, pancreatitis, etc.

    good morning to everyone,

    suzanne, have a nice time with your friend visiting. is this her first time in the u.s?

    steph, had to laugh about your toddler waking you every 20 minutes. brought back memories of when my daughter was little. she'd wake up and come over to the bed, open my eye and say 'mama, are you dere?' who could help but laugh at that?
    enjoy your vacation

    sadie, hey girl, hang in there. aruba is right around the corner!!

    tweety, ugh! bad enough to float, but then to come back to your unit for 8 hours really sucks, imho. but probably nothing is bothering you too much tonight, huh?

    presc, hi sweets! bet you dream about those review questions, but your self-discipline is definately to be admired! hope you have a great time visiting with your sisters.

    kay, yeah, no fun if you can't moan and gripe about work. lol

    susan, welcome to the good morning thread. nice to see ya! hope to see more of you here.

    don't have any specific plans for today. probably try dragging in the suitcases from the garage to start packing some stuff i won't be needing before i leave. called the recruiter to find out my apartment number, but he'd 'forgotten' to ask. maybe they're planning to put me up in a tent in the desert, and saving that bit of news as a surprise! trying to find time to fit in visits to all family and friends before i take off, but its hard cause not many more days. i'd go out shopping but the last thing i need is more stuff, and i've never been one who could just window-shop.

    going to go write some e-mails and have a . hoping we all have a fantastic day.
    hugs to all -

    Dear Weeziebat

    I expect you are getting excieted and nervous all at the same time now, just think a tent could be a new adventure lol I have heard the accomodation is lovely in SA, but hey you better get all the alcohol in now before you go, especially if you are fond of your head
    when do you fly?
  13. by   weetziebat
    kay, yeah, a bit more nervous than excited as it gets closer to the date. i will be flying out next thursday, march 17th at 6:15 a.m. figure it will take ~30 hours from door to door. ugh!!
    the housing is lovely there. when i left the first time i was there, i had a private apartment, but have to put yourself on a waiting list for those, so will probably be sharing a two bedroom apartment, which is o.k. with me.
    and you can bet i will probably stagger drunkenly onto the saudia flight from new york. homemade wine is quite popular there actually, and easy to make - although, of course, that is kept hush-hush!!
    hope you have a good day/evening/ night (whatever shift you work).

    Good Morning Made myself get up early today so I could get some last minute things done before we fly out on Tuesday morning as I have to work 12's Saturday and Sunday.
    Steph, hope you got some rest last night.
    Tweety, you're officially on vacation, Enjoy!
    Presc, you're always studying - hope you have fun with your sisters
    Madwife, hope you had a good shift.
    Weetzie, how long will you be in Saudi? It sounds exciting.
    Scarlett, good to see you on the Good Morning thread
    Suzanne, hope you have a fun visit with Ying.
    I'm off to the tanning booth, I checked the weather in Aruba today, it's 84, I can't wait to hit the beach :chuckle
