Good Morning, Friday

  1. Good Morning to All


    Not sure if someone else is starting the thread, but it seemed kind of late all ready, so I'll go ahead!

    Hope you all will have a Wonderful Friday!! I'll be off tonite, so that always makes it good.

    Work tonite has not been too bad. Lots of patients, but our staffing is OK.

    I didn't even have any Chemo tonite.

    I'll leave you all with a real quick & BAD breakfast
    Juice,
    Coffee,
    Sweet Roll!!

    That's all there's time for this AM guys!!

    Everyone have a GREAT weekend!!

    Good Morning Mary Ann!

    It's a work day for me. I'm supposed to start precepting a new employee. Apparently he's experienced but has been out of nursing for a while. It should go well.

    Have a great day!

    Goodmorning Everyone,


    Been at the ER since noon yesterday. My friend suffered agonizing chest pain and one side of her body went numb. She didn't want to call the ambulance so she called me instead. Of course as soon as I hung up with her I called 911 and off to the ER she went. I drove to her town and picked up her 3 year old who was shaking to death. She is doing better, but they also found her blood glucose level over 300 and she was fasting. She has no family here so all she had was me to accompany her. The staff was great and allowed me to participate with her in everything at her request. I even got to sit next to her as she had an MRI (not the most pleasant thing) but "we" survived it. I was so happy to be there and help her and comfort her, but sad because of what she was going through of course.

    I came home a little bit ago. Ate, bathed and put the child to sleep. I am keeping her until she is discharged. I did not make it to school last night (first time I have ever missed class). I need to read and catch up on what I missed, but first I need to catch some Z's. Won't be on today either as I have a handful today including babysitting

    Have a wonderful day all.

    P.S. I never visit hospitals as you may already know I don't have any children or have had any injuries. Yesterday and last night, I confirmed my desire to do this. I am so excited to know that I will someday be able to take part of the "team" and help others.

    Good morning, everyone.

    I just finished packing. I'm going to a holistic wellness center with a friend for the weekend. I'm taking a workshop on exploration of life after death theories. She's taking a writing class. I really look forward to this. All the food is vegetarian and organic, and though I'm not a vegetarian, it will help set me onto a better eatind track. At least for the weekend. They do have ice cream.

    There's a beautiful lake, gardens, and nearly 200 acres of wooded trails and paths to walk.

    I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.

    Good morning everyone!

    Thanks for the sweet roll, nursemary!

    Tweety, I bet you are a great preceptor. I've read many of your posts, seems you know what you are doing, and truely care about people.

    akcarmean: dd didn't cheer yesterday, it was an out of town game, and freshman cheerleaders do not travel :angryfire , and I'm not driving almost an hour, with the possibility of getting lost out in the country when she is not cheering. I'd go anyway if it was closer in. (I LOVE FOOTBALL!!!) Her homecoming is on the 30th. She gets to do a dance at the homecoming pep rally. They don't have bonfires like we did in high school, BUMMER!!!!! ...and she gets to cheer at the varsity homecoming game, I CAN'T WAIT!!


    Jess, what a great friend you are! I know exactly how you feel about going in the hospital. Everytime I step foot in the hospital, I know I belong there. (not as a patient....been through 18 surgeries, and gave birth to two children...I've served my "patiently" duties out!) :chuckle Hope everything is ok with your friend.

    Cyberkat, enjoy your weekend, it sounds relaxing.

    Good morning everyone and Happy Friday! Thank you everyone who welcomed me yesterday, it's good to be here.

    Now to attempt my "good mornings!"

    MaryAnn, sweet roll sounds delish, I'm fighting the temptation!

    Hi Tweety, have a good day at work!

    Angie, good luck with everything, you sound like one busy lady!

    Jess, wow, what a good friend you are. I hope everything goes well for your friend and glad that the experience really sealed that this is the right career path for you!

    Cyberkat, as long as they have ice cream!!! Actually sounds like a wonderful weekend, enjoy!

    Hi Fun2Care, hope you day goes well!

    Busy weekend on tap here... A&P class tomorrow morning then off to the Highland Games. Haven't been to the games in years, so it will be fun. A friend of mine is coming over from Maine with her husband to attend and her mom is coming up from CT with her camper, so will be fun to see all of them again. Not sure what Sunday will entail. Might try to catch a church service (we're not particularly religious, but would like to find a good UU minister to do our wedding), then some apple picking and maybe some cooking. I love this time of year!

    Guess I should go do some work now, boss took the day off but left a list of "to dos" (if only she would give me stuff to do when she's actually here I might be slightly less bored out of my gourd!). Will check back later!

    Everyone, thank you very much for your words. I slept a few hours and now I am starting my work. Imagine, today is payday for all these employees and I still haven't submitted the batch!

    hope your day is wonderful.

    hi, nursemary. thank you for the sweet roll. sleep well today.


    hello, tweety. are you always picked as a preceptor? i'll bet you are a great one, alot of patience and able to teach most effectively. you need to consider education as a career choice.


    mornin', angelia. all right!! looks like your ds is on his way to a championship?


    hi, cyberkat. do give us some ideas on holistic cooking when you get back. have fun.


    hello, fun2care. i remember when my oldest dd was cheerleader at her school and youngest (although only 17 months apart) was cheering at her school. decisions. decisions. which game to i attend now? it was so much fun. i always loved the fb games. bb, too. and, she is varsity cheerleader? too cool.


    mornin', arciedee. a great first good morning post!! what are the highland games?


    oh, jess. :angel2: i do hope your friend is o.k. :icon_hug: you truly are a great friend. calling 911 was the right thing to do. you are already the patient advocate.



    o.k. i am by myself for two more days. now i don't mind being alone sometimes, but, this is turning into being lonely. dh is off hiking after the convention. kinda too quiet here.......too quiet.

    Good morning all! I don't have time to address you all personally, but I just had to stick my nose in this morning before I head to bed and lapse into a coma!

    Jess, you are such a wonderful friend! You sound like the kind of nurse I would like to have in the hospital! Good for you for calling 911 - your friend sounds like she is in a serious health crisis - glucose over 300 and not eating anything?????

    Just thought I'd let you all know - I got a 100% on both my lecture exam and lab practical in A&P - second test where I got 100 or better! The funny thing about it - right before the test, I was talking with the guy sitting next to me. Nice guy, but a little self-assured and kind of sexist in a way. He says, "bet ya 50 cents I do better on this test than you do!" I simply said, "I never bet on test scores." Meanwhile I'm thinking, "does this guy think he's smarter just because he has a penis, or what?"

    So, yesterday we get the tests back. Teacher says "lecture average was 75, lab average, 70. Highest score in the class, 100 - only one person in this class studied hard enough to get a 100 on this test." SO, she hands me my test, and without a smile on my face, I lean over to this guy and say, "how did you do? As good as you thought?" He gets this huge grin and says, I did well above average. I got an 82 on lecture, and a 79 on lab." I smile, and say, "well, good thing we didn't bet on the grades then." So of course, he asks to see my test - and I hand it over - "accidentally" handing my first test scores with it (I got every answer correct, including the bonus questions on both lecture and lab on the first exam). Let it suffice to say that I never saw someone turn that shade of red/purple except for the guy I had as a patient once whose BP was 240/125. This cocky guy who foolishly tried to bet with me on his own sexist stereotype said not a word, simply handed my tests back and fished 50 cents out of his pocket. I bought a candy bar to celebrate!

    Okay, now that I've shared my story that had me tickled pink, I have to go hit the sack before I fall into unconscousness right here at the desk. Later gaters!
