Happy Tuesday! Jan 30

  1. Wow. I can't believe we're one day short of the end of a month. This one flew by!

    It's been a so-so month for me, with my back hurting as it was. Definitely much better now though with my new analgesic. I'm managing with only taking it once or twice a day now so that's an improvement.

    And, if anything can show that someone's back is better - I scrubbed down the bathroom. LOL umpiron:

    It's still quite cold here in Montreal but the sun has been shining, which is fine with me. I would love to have spring come soon though because I have a freezer full of beef (split a cow with three other families) and I just love a good barbecued steak. We were barbecuing right up to December with our unseasonably mild beginning of winter, but the BBQ is now buried under snow and I don't really want to be in minus 20 degree weather weilding my bbq tongs.

    Ok, time to get some work done. I have an article to write on HPV and the new vaccine.

    Have a good day everyone!

    GOOD MORNING. PEEPS!!

    Clemm, thanks for starting the thread!!
    I'm so sorry that your back is still giving you problems
    It's VERY cold here in Chicago, also. The coldest it's been all season, in fact.
    We had very light snow flurries yesterday & I think they say the same for Tuesday.


    Well, I'm at work. BUSY again!!
    Tonite, we're one RN down, too. We had Four blood transfusions tonite, plus one pt. to get platelets!!
    My pt's plt. count at 0500 Monday AM was 11,000. So they ordered platelets----can you believe they didn't get them in until 0200!!!
    WOW!! In the meantime, tho, he also got 4 units of PRBC's.
    Sick guy!!!
    I'm also up for next admit--it's our only empty. 0330 now--so maybe I'll be OK??????????????
    One can hope!!!

    I have a nail appt. for early this AM too, but I may end up cancelling that---just don't feel like it today.
    DH is going to the Golf dome to hit balls with the guys, then to lunch. I'll probably work on my DVD again & who knows, may even finish it. Unless I decide to Nap instead!! Really need to work on it, tho, as next week I have LOTS of appt's---MD, Eye Doctor, etc.
    Got to get to work on the house, too for the Party!!

    I got a Wonderful frame for my Collage--got it at Michaels. Lots of neat stuff there!!
    I got this little white twig tree with colored little balls on it--an Easter Tree, I guess-----instead of easter decorations--We're going to put $5.00 bills on it--totallling $90.00 as a gift for her.

    Well, got to run--pt's calling.

    Hope everyone will have a wonderful Tuesday!!

    Morning, all!

    It's cold!!! I am so in a hurry to get spring here!

    It's a day off for me; might actually hit the books and learn me about blood! Yesterday's quiz was OK; I couldn't remember more than one pancreatic hormone...duh. But I know them now! Then maybe I'll go to Barnes and Noble and spend the gift card burning a hole in my wallet...

    I'll be around today, trying to avoid the non-nursing posters post, but I keep getting drawn to it and trying to feel not so useless...

    You all have a great day. Hugs and prayers to those in need. Be well!

    Peace.

    Good morning everyone.

    I've been gone not because anything's happening, but because nothing is happening.

    Anywya, still not much going on. DD decided she'd like a poncho so I'm going out for yarn for that. Have to clean up our rental condo. We have to get a few more parts for the new appliances, and switch toilets, etc. The toilet story is a long one.

    Have a great day, everyone.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    Don, don't you just love bookstores when they're not actuall associated with colleges?

    Did 4 loads of laundry. How can one person have soooo many clothes? OMG, I sound like my mother. I better stop.

    The clean pile is sitting on the floor waiting to be folded and put away. What's the point? I know it's clean so I'll just start wearing stuff at the top and work my way down.

    I had a horrible dream last night. The Colts lost the super bowl. I even knew the score but I'm not telling. This is serious, last night I cried that I wasn't going to be there for the big win.

    Maybe the hockey game Sat will take my mind off of it.
