    Good Morning to all!! Premium Members are welcome to chat here and tell us a bit about your day.

    My little mini-vacation is ended and I'm back at work; BUSY here & they took both of our CNA'S to other floors. Oh well, nothing we can do about it, I guess.

    This new floor we are on is really still a mess---just so cluttered & messy looking!! Well, they say we should be back to our floor by Christmas---we'll see.

    Haven't had a chance to read the thread from yesterday.

    Wanted to just say hello & Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

    I have nothing planned for the day--maybe do some work on Christmas Cards. DH has Jury Duty today--One Day or One Case. We'll see what happens.

    See you all

    Good morning. I'm just up for no real reason. Today is my shadowing day in the NICU. I was told to bring in my resume and I may be able to meet with the nurse manager of the unit. Marc's Mom has worked there since graduation in 1970. She says it was a whole different thing back then and the current technology makes it almost unrecognizable to the unit's beginnings.

    Good morning!

    I hope everyone has a great day. Today I'm just going to be studying and housecleaning. Maybe go to yoga class.

    Mary Ann, I floated to a unit my last four hours, probably similar to yours, medical-oncology, where they floated off their CNA and I missed having that extra pair of hands. I spent the four hours I was there taking vitals signs, passing supper trays and passing meds.

    [font="comic sans ms"]morning!
    today started off with a bang.....got up at 2a with hubby and drank some coffee with him, then dozed back off for awhile, finished up some homework, and got kiddies off to school. got myself ready to go to clinical, and she-bang! got slapped in the face with another change of plans.....
    mom's blood sugar was only 49 this am. and she was incontinent last night sometime. so, i sent the sitter home, called to reschedule clinical, and am doing laundry and letting mom rest. bs is ok now, got her back up to 134 about 15 minutes ago. i'll shower her in a little bit. we have a doc appt today at 3p anyway. i think i am going to ask why we can't try humalog 70/30 or something along those lines. cause she is down in the morning and up in the afternoon. maybe change the time of her lantus....huh.
    oh well, at least while she's resting, i can get some reading done and maybe work on my case study for this week.
    and spend some time with my momma, who i love more than anything!:redpinkhe

    [font="comic sans ms"]mary~ hope your night was ok even though they took both your cna's! geez! how crappy!

    Morning all!

    Just got home from work....wasn't a great night, wasn't a horrible night. Slammed with ICU admissions until midnight then it finally settled down. LOL...some nights, empty beds are just an invitation!

    Angie....just noticed that you live in my old neck of the woods! I didn't live in J'ville but I worked with several nurses that did. Sounds like things have changed for the worse around there if people are stealin' ya blind! I don't think I ever even locked my house or my car when I lived there. Sad.

    Julie...hope you get things worked out for your sake and your mom's. It's hard to care for your parents....took care of both of mine while I was in nursing school too. Hugs and prayers to you.

    Tweety....put down that broom and enjoy your day off!!

    Siri....hope things are ok with you!
    Mary Anne...the powers that be called off our CNA and a nurse last night....typical...no help and we get slammed.

    Adrien, tnbutterfly, jmgrn...have a good day at work.

    Sorry if I missed anyone....have a great day all.
