    Quote from jmgrn65
    good morning everyone, my pain is better not sure if whatever is wrong is healing or if it is the toradol. mmmm me thinks it is toradol.
    hope everyone has a good day!
    hoping you feel better soon!

    Quote from walkingrock
    z-coil shoes and pilates has helped me.
    when i first started my job, i had terrible pain in my heels - cement floors, standing and running around ... so i got better shoes - and also with time my feet got used to it. i'm not sure if it was pf or not.

    how would pilates help?

    Quote from roy fokker
    dale ~ how very true!

    try 'em. i have no foot or other join troubles - but i consider them "preventive maintenance".
    i always thought that i'd "trip" on them more easily than with regular shoes.

    I'm at work & NOT having a great nite!! Got an Admit that has about 5 pages of meds from nsg home & they all have to be entered into the computer---plus the meds from her last admit are still on the form & they're not the same & so it's RATHER confusing---------------You must remember that I am BLOND!!! I GET CONFUSED REALLY EASY!!! LOL!!!

    Seriously, parts of our med reconcilliation program can get a bit confusing. Oh well; I have most of my stuff done now so I won't go off on it!!

    My foot is KILLING me, but I guess it won't get better overnite. I did my exercises as I was advised to, so hopefully this will gradually resolve itself.

    Once I leave here, I don't have much planned. DH is supposed to golf today, so I'll have LOTS of peace & quiet at home.
    I'm reading a James Patterson book & I can hardly put it down, so I'll have lots of time for that!! I have to work again tonite, so, I'll also need some sleep.

    I was wondering if you guys could all say a prayer for both my Brother-- who was in Hospital this weekend for Chest Pain & irregular & rapid heart beat and for DH's Cousin who broke her femer & had some rather complicated surgery on it. She;s said to be in incredible pain and now must start rehab. She did this 2 days before she was scheduled for a knee replacement!! My DB is now home & Cousin went to a rehab facility.

    Well, I hope you all have a really good Day!!

    I'll leave some refreshments!!:smiletea2: :smiletea: :smilecoffeeIlovecof :smilecoffeecup: :biere:

    See you later

    I am awake at this hour because I cannot seem to go back to sleep. Perhaps I'll try to get my day started a little earlier than usual.

    Take care and have a beauteous day!

    Mornin' y'all!

    Yet another exciting day.

    I've been going through boxes and more boxes! We emptied out our storage shed after 10 yrs! OMG! ...One can only imagine the junk and dust 10 yrs collects!

    I've been going through boxes for 2 days now, and I probably have another 2 days worth of work!

    Y'all have a great day!

    Good Morning Everyone
    Well, it is humpday, and I don't like humpday, cause I have to leave tomorrow for the city for work......but only two weekends left!!!!!!!YEAH
    Not much to do today, water plants, pick up the office key from a friend, run to the store. Not too bad, maybe will get my sewing machine set up.
    I hope everyone has a wonderful, productive day.

    i am finally home from my adventure, and boy am i glad to be home!!! i got home yesterday morning after leaving la monday night at 10:45 pm pst (1:45 am est). i didn't get much sleep on the first 4 1/2 plane ride due to a dear little chatterbox sitting across the aisle. she entertained everyone with her non-stop talking and singing, while her father was completely oblivious that others might want to sleep. after an hour and a half lay-over, i did sleep on the next flight, although it was only 45 minutes. it was a small propeller plane and the seats did not recline. after my two relaxing flights, i had a wonderful 1 1/2 hour car ride home from the airport. i chose not to fly into our local airport which is only 15 minutes away. you may think i am totally insane for subjecting myself to this torture.....especially after all i had already been through with the 4 day drive out to la. well....normally i would have more sense, but i saved alot of cents by traveling the red-eye flight. because i had to wait until the last minute to book my flight, it would have cost $500 more to fly during the day. so....... i sacrificed my body and my sanity. needless to say, i slept all day yesterday in my own bed. heavenly......... i am so glad to be home.

    Good morning everyone!

    Not much new here lately. Working in pure he**, will be making a change SOON.....would love to call them and say I wont be back, long story about that!! I tried to post it last night and my laptop crashed right in the middle of my typing it out. To make a long story short, I am tired of being taken advantage of trying to be the director and seeing patients. No one would listen back in Jan when I told them I needed nurses......but after me being on a two wk leave of abscence then all of a sudden its a crisis........I went back yesterday, and they are no longer concerned about finding staff. "You can manage" is what I was told.

    My oldest son graduates high school next week, my classes started back on the 9th so I am deep into research uggghhhh....I have an evidenced based research paper for my final grade...which by the way is a group paper, my youngest son is taking guitar and piano lessons.......he wants to go to Belmont in Nashville when he gets out of school (09), so the instructor is showing him all kinds of things that he needs to know for his interview there.

    Today......... I am going to try to do as little as possible!!

    Hope everyone has a great day!
