Good Thursday Morning 03/10/05

  1. Had three deaths on our unit today...............two were the results of unrestrained children........

    My student, Ying, is arriving on Friday morning from Bangkok. We are going down to LAX to pick her up and then will return here. Can't wait to see her, it seems like forever...............and her English is so good now. She is coming over to also take the NCLEX exam...........

    Work in the morning, actually volunteered for it, then off again until Tuesday... Farmer's Market scheduled for Saturday morning, extended my contract here, so will need new patio furniture for the balcony. The weather has just been beautiful the past few daysm, sunny and in the mid 70s.


    Have a great day............and please make it a safe one......

    Hi Suzanne. I'm at work tonight. I started out with only four patients and now have five. We're all in heaven as they overstaffed us for some reason. We have plenty of empty beds, but there are five of us and we can take one or two admissions apiece, so no big deal if they decide to slam us.

    Not much going on. So I'm down to 1 and 1/2 shifts until vacation!!! WOOT! I'm so fatigued tonight, I can't wait to just sleep. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    So sorry about the deaths!! Especially so if they were preventable. . . my heart goes out to their families, and to the nurses who grieve with them.

    Hope you have a good visit with Ying, and to her: GOOD LUCK on the NCLEX!!

    We have a Farmer's Market every Thurs. nite nearby, to which I go occasionally. Always spend too much money but the fruits/veggies/cheeses/breads etc. are too good to pass by!!

    Have a good day everyone! How about some homemade bread with butter and jam/preserves, for breakfast? Just the SMELL of the bread lifts my spirits!!

    How about one with raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon? Had this last week from the Farmer's Market, and it was unbelievable. And I am not much of a bread eater anymore. Think that I wil have to take Ying there on Saturday for more. And I only got to have one piece of it before it was all gone.............but I am sure that there will be more there for me..............

    Sounds great, Suzanne! I personally favor oatmeal with brown sugar and chopped walnuts in it. The way I make it: a cup of water to a cup of oats (old-fashioned, not the quick-cook), add the oats to the boiling water, let them bubble away for 30-60 sec, then cover for 1-2 min. The oats are still a little crunchy, and have GREAT flavor (no runny mess, either. This really sticks to your ribs!).

    Aww, now I'm drooling! Later! -- D

    This is one of those nights I can't sleep, too much racing around in my head. Suzanne, my prayers and sympathy are with the families of these little ones. I hope the nurses have counselors available, it is so hard to lose one child we care for but 3 in a day is very difficult. Good luck with Ying and to her on her exam.

    Tweety, have a good rest on vacation.
    To all the rest, have a great day. It is still cold and snowy here, so I envy those of you getting some sunshine. Have a blessed day.

    Barefoot, I'm sorry you're not at peace. Hope you get some rest soon. I know all about sleepnessness and it isn't fun.

    HI PRESC!


    Weetzie, have a great weekend away!

    I got an admission, very sweet and nice young guy in a car wreck. What a pleasure to take care of a nice guy and not some drunk screaming bloody murder at me.

    Woot!

    Good Morning! Working, working, working . . . I have 3 patients. There is a crowd here at the nurse's station gossiping . . .

    After this 8 days off. Jesus, Joseph and Mary (as my Catholic friend says) . . . .I can't wait.

    Suzanne - sorry about the deaths . . I'm almost finished with the EMS stories and they are mostly horrible. Don't ask me why I'm reading it . . . .sorta like a car accident . . you can't help looking.

    Ok - more coffee . . just gotta get through this crowd of people.

    steph
