Monday, 12/5....Good Morning!

  1. hello everyone in allnurses land!!

    forgive me if i'm a bit perky. i had to take some painkillers. pain so bad i couldn't sleep so i thought i'd start the days thread.

    psychonurse: i will be thinking of you and your dh. also, i just finished your card and i will mail it out today.

    i can't remember who, but someone yesterday made the comment that i must be from ohio. you better take that back!!! i'm not from ohio, i'm from indiana and i know all about those ohio drivers.

    didn't get the christmas tree after all, but thanks to everyone who gave my lyrics to bug my brother with. bro fell on the ice and hurt his back and broke a finger. i'm worried about him as he and his wife have twin daughters and he cannot be out of work!! please think of him today. also, one of my niece's is sick. she's one and throwing up. she's supposed to get tubes in her ears on the 16th.

    siri (i think): ((((hugs)))) and i hope you feel better. get to the doctor!

    i hope everyone has a good and safe day!

    not sure i can call it that.

    i'm prone to my bouts of moodiness. but this time it's really strange.

    can't seem to shake it off.

    it's been a nagging feeling for quite a while now, my trip to jersey over thanksgiving was apparently only temporary relief. the loneliness doesn't help matters any but i don't feel like doing a blessed thing about it either.

    my house is a mess. i need to do stuff for school that i've been putting off.

    but i couldn't care less. :stone

    eeesh! i better stop before i drag y'all down too - it's not even 3 am!

    laters!

    did i mention that i haven't slept a wink in 2 days? don't feel sleepy. can't seem to sleep. i just lie around in bed not doing a thing, mind just blank, thinking things i ought not to be thinking about.

    meh...

    GOOD MORNING!!:Melody: :Melody:

    I'm at work, dear friends!! Not the best nite. Had started to post earlier & had to drop the whole thing as I got busy. Now, I seem to have a bit of down-time. I gave my leukemia pt. a unit of blood!!

    The prbc's were ordered early yesterday, but this lady's temps have been so high, we held off on the blood.
    Usually, for leukemia pt's we will give blood with elevated temps, but her's was WAY high!!
    So we held it till it came down a bit. Then when it came down I started the blood & didn't it go right back up!!
    Oh well, it's done now!!

    Now, I have a pt. being transferred out to another hospital!! An ambulance is on the way. She's going for surgery at this other place this AM & yesterday afternoon, they didn't have a bed for her yet, so said to just send her tonite straight to admitting for the surgery. Well, hope this works out smoothly. This is a new one for me!!

    Quite a nite!!

    Soon, it will be time to do all my central line draws.

    Well, I'm off iMonday nite so that's good.
    I got all the allnurses cards out Sat. nite & hope to do our cards between mon & Tues.

    Roy, I just hope you get to feeling better!!

    I was going to address each of you, but my ambulance just arrived, so GOT TO RUN!!!

    See you all

    have a GREAT Day!!

    Morning everyone,

    It snowed yesterday and after enjoying the joys of shoveling...............more snow today

    I have soooo much homework and final things to do that I can't decide where to start. Finals start next week, and at the same time I have to study for nursing.

    Will enjoy the lovely indoors til I sort things out........the snow shoveling could wait. :chuckle

    Have a wonderful day.

    Good morning! Got errands and studying to do, sameo sameo. Woot!

    Roy, saying your prone to moodiness is an understatement my friend. You need a regular sleep/eat/exercise schedule. Maybe some counseling? Take care. We worry about you.

    Good morning, everyone!

    Bethin, perky is good. Pain free is better. Nothing to forgive there.

    Sue, yeah that. Even when I'm off, Mondays can be rough helping everyone else get out the door.

    Roy, Tweety's right. You need some routine or a doc. Or both. Take care of yourseself.

    MaryAnn, I hope the rest of your shift went well. It should be about over. Everybody is making me feel guilty finishing all their cards. Hopefully mine will all be done today or at latest tomorrow morning.

    Jesse, we were supposed to get snow last night but it didn't happen. The kids were so disappointed. They wanted to stay home from school.

    Tweety, don't study too hard, ya hear?

    I'm going to start my stew for dinner, run some errands, go to the doc in a box, then come home and do some cleaning. Wash the dog, that kind of thing. We got our Christmas tree yesterday. It's a douglas fir and the whole house smells wonderful. It' a huge, fat thing and we had to do some serious furniture rearranging to make it fit. But it looks good.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Back to classes today....hope I do alright on my exam. I think I'll be alright. Then I am coming home and going to try to finish my Stats term paper so I can turn it in tonight and maybe if I'm really lucky, he'll get stuff graded, so I can see where I'm at in that class before the deadline.
    Amanda's coming home the 19th, I have a final in OB that day, then the 20th, my birthday, Logan is having hernia surgery...but I'll be 43. Don't really care if it's my birthday or not at this point! Haha!

    Good Morning all,

    I have been away for a little while been really busy. I started a new job on the 28th of Nov, It is at a place called the HOPE SCHOOL. There are kids with mental and physical disabilities. I worked 40 hours last week and I am exhausted and my back is hurting. My body has not worked 40 hrs in at least 2 1/2 - 3 yrs. But I love the job. As soon as training is over with I will be going to midnights. It will be much slower pace and not a as much to do as days or evenings.

    Well have a final exam today then another one on the 14th then I am done for at least x-mas break.

    I have to renew my membership but have to send it by mail so I might not have access to here but I will soon. I do believe that my email is under my profile if anyone need to get a hold of me. or nursemary9 or presc has my email addy.

    take care all
    talk to u later


    for those who are sick and need prayers (havn't read back) I will just add all of you to my list.

    bye
    Love
    Angie
