    I'm off to work this morning. More than likely I will float.

    Roy, my condolences on the loss of your friend.

    Hello to my Family!!

    I've got about 90 min. left to my shift. Not so awful so far tonite. I don't like to say that too early!! One never knows!!
    My nites are never boring here, that's for sure!! Always something. We've had a LOT of Leukemia patients lately & any of you fellow ONC nurses know that they are MUCH WORK!! Always Blood, Platelets & Antibiotics!!
    I don't remember when the last time was that we've had so many leukemia pt's at once!! We also have a lot of renal pt's & peritoneal dialysis. we have one pt. with Q 3 hr CAPD!! That's a chore, also.

    Well, TWEETY, Have a good Float--Sometimes here, a float can be a blessing in disguise!! Not always, tho.

    Kay, I wish I had half a boring nite--What kind of unit do you work on?

    WOLF, Hope you have a great day

    Shelly, you know I share you're feelings about being the boss!! Boy do I hate it!!

    JESS Hope all goes well for you in the move!!
    Good luck with the A/P

    So see you all later
    Have a great day

    Still rubbing the sleepies out of my eyes.

    Tweety, hope your day is a pleasant one.

    Kay.. get PACKING !!!

    Mary.. guess you're home sleeping now. ahhhh.......

    Jess.. hope the move goes smoothly for you. Good luck on the exam today, but I have a feeling you won't need it.

    Shelly.. yes it is Thursday. Were you trying to be FUNNY?

    Hi Wolfers ! Nice seeing you pop in. Have a good one !

    So. Still tired. Feet still hurt. Oh well. Can't garner any sympathy here.. you all are in the same boat with me ! :chuckle

    Going down to Winston Salem today to Babtist Hospital to peep in on dh's dearest golfing buddy. 83y/o gentleman who had a quadruple bypass on Monday. DH was soooooooo worried about him. He pulled through, and we are hoping they'll let us just go in for a few minutes to take his hand and offer support. These two guys practically worship each other.

    DH is not the most social animal and doesn't go out of his way to make friends with ppl, but he just latched right on to this sweet little man, and the feeling is mutual.

    So we'll be heading down the road here in a little bit. It's a little over an hour's drive. Always wanted to check out that hospital anyway.

    Well, guess the first thing I need to do is jump in the shower.

    Maybe it'll wake me up and soothe my aching bones. Still whining, I know.

    I'll survive... if for nothing else but to irritate all of you !

    Roy................................ I wish I could offer something other than mere words of condolense. Words just don't do it. My heart goes out to you on the loss of your dear friend and comerade. (((HUGS))) Please feel free to share your loss and your feelings about that here. You know we care.

    Neuro rehab but they are are well at the moment have got them over their critical stages, they sleep for good long periods over night and only need an occasional bed pan. It will change when the acutes come in from the main ward too early( we can get them 6 days post stroke and they are almost dead)

    I didn't float, I'm in charge, which I hate. Low census day, canceled two nurses including our charge nurse.

    Oh well, at least the census is low. Apparently it's relatively low throughout the house. The good thing is the manager is out of town so won't be bugging me.

    This is the first time I've done charge on day shift, so I can't complain, but I will. LOL It's a bit "o.k", (can't say the "q" word) so I went to see if my online class is open yet, which is supposed to open today. My fingers automatically typed "allnurses.com" . LOL

    Good morning everyone! I had a looong day yesterday with the peer interview and class all day. At least I did get checked off on IV starts. Wish they would've done blood at the same time, but, oh well. DH is hoping to come home today, he's been out of town with work since monday and he is homesick.
