Good Morning Sat. Jan. 13th 2007

  1. good morning all,

    been a long time since i have started a thread.

    i am up d/t the pain. they gave me darvoct for pain. i am out of my muscle relaxers (dr. wouldn't give me any more) i am so stiff and sore.

    i have been going to the chiropractor 2x q day. they are doing and ultrasound-electric stimulator.

    i go see my surgeon on the 17th. let him look at my back since no one else has except the chiro using the ultrasound.

    this is really worring me. i have more pain and numbness on my left side. i can sit in a chair for 15min and my left leg will be numb. i am off work until the 16th. bad, bad thing. i am the only source of income. we are almost 2 1/2 months behind on bills and all this is weight on my shoulders. doesn't help.

    we have a deep layer of ice on the cars this am. dh had to go out and get some milk for mil so she can have it for breakfast.

    ok,ok enough about me.

    havn't got to read through the threads but home everyone is better or starting to feel better.

    for those getting out and going to work or traveling becareful.

    those on the midnight shifts hope u get a good day's sleep.

    those working hoping you have a smooth day.

    those off enjoy your day.

    Good morning Angie.

    Wow. You sound like you're in alot of pain. Take it easy and hope you get better. If you have pain meds why won't the dr give you muscle relaxers?

    I've been up since 0300. Coming down with the dreaded flu but I have to go to work this morning. Will be drinking LOTS of coffee to make it through the day. One nostril I can't breathe out of and the other is literally dripping. Running small temp too.

    All I wanna do is sleep. Took medicine but it hasn't helped.

    Good morning. Woke up to go potty then decided to visit you all. I guess thats not very complementary but heartfelt. Can we say addiction?

    (((((((Angie))))))) I'm real sorry about your accident and that you're feeling so bad. I hope it won't come to surgery for you. Take it easy, let the Dr. know how you're feeling and ask what more he can do to make you feel better. Prayers said for you.

    (((((((Beth))))))) I hope your cold gets better quick. Get the chicken soup out, the Zicam and the ColdMD ASAP. Stay warm and cozy with a box of tissues beside you and drink lots of hot tea with honey and lemon.

    GardenDove, I know that breaking in a new nurse is more difficult than doing the work by yourself but if you do it right you'll have a good nurse who will be able to give good care to the patients and who will be able to help you out in the future. I hope the rest of your shift is uneventful for you.

    If all goes as planned (and you know what can happen to good plans) we'll be going to the Crystal River Manatee Festival today. Its a fair with lots of booths, food, crafts, river rides, etc. The weather is supposed to be nice with the temp above normal (around 80). Of course I'll have to get a few more zzzs if I'll survive to enjoy it. My eyes are burny-tired and drooping so I should be able to snooze some more.
    I hope you all have a wonderful God blessed day today.

    Mornin' y'all!

    Prayers for Angie, and everyone!



    Nothing going on today. I'm the only one up, and I've been up for an hour. I think I'm finally getting tired again, so I'm sure a nap will be needed soon. ha



    Since I'm up, I've been reviewing Tuesday's powerpoints that my instructor has already posted.



    Anyway....Y'all have a great day!

    Good Morning dear peeps!

    I've been up awhile... let's just say I'm rising, but I'm certainly not shining yet!

    Noc before last I was on call, and I want you to know it was the noc from hell !!! My pager started going off 15 minutes after the office closed at 4:30 pm and it was one thing after another. To top it off I had to go out three times! Each time I got back and crawled into bed, I'd have to get up and head out on the road again ! :stone

    I finally got to catch 4 hours sleep after getting home from my last visit at 0130 am.

    So................ today I'm going out for one quick new post surgery rotator cuff visit (and that only because I need to pick up a few things in town anyway) and then I'm vegging the rest of the weekend!
    I want to fix up Adam a new box of goodies as I know he's probably running low by now, so I'll get those in town and do my visit, and then get straight back home sweet home!

    Next weekend I have weekend call from Fri. pm 'til Mon am and I am sooooooooooo not looking forward to it !!! WAH. Whine.

    OK.. better get ready and get this done. So I can get back here and enjoy my weekend.

    Hugs and prayers to all who need them today.

    Catch you all later!

    (((angie))) i know what you are going through. my income was cut by 40 percent back in 2003, when i had to go out on fmla. like you, i got behind on my bills. my creditors refused to work with me and i was forced into bankruptcy. it's no fun being sick and unable to work, only then to be harassed by a bunch of jerks who are bound and determined to make your misery their mission in life. i hope things get better for you, i really do.

    speaking of money, i have to put my car in the shop today. coolant is bubbling up from a leak somewhere in the engine compartment, and my mechanic is going to have to take everything apart in order to get to it, which is going to take a minimum of an hour...and he charges $1.00 a minute for labor. then comes the cost for the parts, doing the actual repair and putting the engine back together......

    i don't even want to think about it.

    so much for my plans of getting new glasses on monday, which i desperately need. oh, well.

    Morning everyone!

    Hugz, prayers for all who need them.

    Work evening for me--in fact I'm going in early at 1 pm to relieve one of the RN's who has to leave early so I'll be working 1p-11p. :uhoh21:

    Still no sign of snow here in the Northeast. I'm sure we will get hammered sometime!!!

    Gee that's cold Steph.

    I think we're in for a nice day in the 70s today. No heat and no air conditioning, just nice fresh air..........ah.

    I hope those in pain and in sickness find rest and relief. I'm still hanging on to a little cold I caught a week ago. Much much better, but still irritating.

    No work today, but a little studying and rest.

    I hope everyone has a great day.
