  1. Good morning all - it's not quite MN here, but I just thought I would start the AM thread anyway -

    Thank goodness, things have been a lot more controled tonight! Last night was one of the most bizarre I have ever had! Much better tonight.

    Took some benadryl and it really did not help me sleep that much - I will give it a try again this morning.

    Finished Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister this morning - it was pretty good.

    Talk to you all later.

    Good morning! :kiss

    diarygirl = I hope today is peaceful for you.

    I've got a whole lot of last-minute studying to do, since I have two A&P tests tomorrow (one in lab, the other in lecture). My time management has been awfully horrible this semester, and I thought I had another week to study. Now, the procrastination is biting me in the butt.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

    Yep, same thing here. I thought I had 2 weeks to finish my paper, but it's due by mn on Sunday.

    Taking a break from writing. Trying to follow advice given. I will never pick a topic like this one again. Too complicated. I've printed off more than 2000 pages of research! I'm up to my eyeballs in case law.

    Good luck on your tests tomorrow. Is this your final in the class?

    Morning friends...
    good luck to all of those studying and with papers to do!!
    seems funny to me not to have the "end of semester crunch"

    got a phone call at 4 am that MIL is back in icu intubated... feel so bad that this happened again. (she had an episode this past summer)

    sounds like she is developing flash pulmonary edema; sudden onset, diff breathing, irregular heartbeat.


    when i answered the phone i didnt recognize the name of the hosp.. the nurse asked to speak to dh, and I said who is this? she said IR Med center.. and i said do you know its 4am ? then she said it was about his mom; boy did i feel stupid:trout: just wasnt awake!!:uhoh21:
    her md will call dh today for an update.

    other than that not much going on . work today.

    hope its a good one for everyone! mary

    Yikes! 0.0? I didn't know you could live with no neutrophil count. I wouldn't want to be that pt - I freaked out when my dr called and said my count was 1.5.

    Hope you have a better night!

    I have all my shopping done. Had it finished before Thanksgiving.

    I'm looking forward to having time to clean. My apt looks like a dozen 2 year olds spent the weekend. Trash needs taken out, I can't see my desk, I'm throwing laundry into a closet because it won't fit in the basket - and the closet is full. Now where do I throw it?

    Good Morning! Dayshift checking in. I hope everyone has a great day!

    MaryAnn, those neutropenic fevers can be scarey, shame on them for not reporting it.
