Good Wednesday Morning 04/27/05

  1. Please have your families pay special attention to the little ones around water, any type. We have had two "near drownings" come in over the past three days and this is only the end of April.........Remember that it can only take a second for something devastating to occur.........

    And no babies sleeping in beds with parents..................another problem can occur..............

    Bad day at to you tomorrow..........

    oh suzanne, i don't even want to think about it. i'm sorry for you, the children, their parents-it's all just too, too tragic and so preventable.

    i had an interview scheduled for tomorrow in a peds burn unit and ended up cancelling because i know in my heart, i couldn't handle it.

    ok. let's keep breakfast simple and light: fresh fruit salad, croissants and beverages, including but not ltd. to champagne and bloody mary's, if you're in one of those moods.

    not very talkative myself....much going on at home, esp w/tiff. can't talk about it either-she'd be so upset.
    but what i can tell you is one way or the other, i'm getting her into crisis counseling tomorrow- as a highly upset and frantic mom, they'll know i mean business.

    have a good day my beloveds.

    Good Morning!!!

    so sorry you have had these experiences...........
    I'll make sure to pay special attention as we are co-sleepers with my 5 year old, and we'll be at the pool for the next few days.

    Good morning. Off to work. Didn't sleep well because of the rain and thunder for the first few hours. Then of course the dogs woke me a couple of times. But I'll survive I suppose. I'm sure to be too busy to be tired. I'm first on the float list, waiting to see when I'll float somewhere.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Special hugs to Leslie and her family. I'll be thinking of you.

    I read about the two toddler siblings who drowned in the pond. Still unsure of the reason.

    Have to disagree with the co-sleeping though - we've had our babies in bed with us. I give a list of precautions to our post-partum moms who want to co-sleep - don't get drunk or high (duh), don't put babies in a waterbed, don't put the babies next to a wall, etc. But co-sleeping is common in other cultures and actually becoming more common here. And you get more sleep because when the baby just starts to wake you can plop that nipple in their mouth and they nurse and go right back to sleep. Plus, there is some recent info that co-sleeping decreases SIDS because the moms are so very aware of their babies breathing. So, can't make a blanket statement against it - just make sure the moms are given education.

    Ok - off soapbox (our 3 year old still sleeps with us

    Working today - wish I could tell you of our psych patient . . . so very complicated and sad.

    Hope you all have a great day.

    Morning! Yes, it is.

    I just gave my daughter a talk about watching toddlers every ear out and eye out for them...Not leaving them in another room. I think she understands I have to say these things.
    My daughter will use a co-sleeper. I can't see it being a bad thing under normal circumstances. It seems the Mom would, as StevieLynn said, actually be more aware of the baby.

    Good news on the house front, although there could be hurdles ahead with our recent lack of good luck, but the offer was accpeted on the most recent house we put the offer on.

    Good morning all! No school for me today. Have already been into "town" to pay bills, pick up odds and ends, and visit mom. All in all a pretty productive day so far. Clothes in washer and dryer, color in my hair as I am typing.

    Sorry everyone seems to be having a bad day today. Hope things get better for each of you.

    Liza good news for you though. Hope it goes through this time!

    Oh, BTW yesterday was my 20th wedding anniversary, hard to believe but true. (Geez am I getting old or what???)

    "Only" six patients today, I have an empty room, but no admission scheduled yet.

    I had 5 counting the baby but mom and babe just left.

    Stuffing a salad down my throat and then headed back to work. Only 3 more hours to go . . .

    Tweety - hope you don't get another admission.

    steph i think that the toddlers in ga had been reported to child services b/4 this all happen..
    tweety . thunder and lightening are things to go to sleep by... i guess it is a throw back to my childhood in Ark. i would frequently go to sleep in my bed and would wake up in storm celler where my dad had moved us during night
    lilgirl---first 20 years are the hardest-congrats
    jen.. you can never watch little ones too closely
    les..better you determine what you can or cant do now . there is a place for everyone but not everyone to the same place
    di..sweet dreams
