Looks like rain is predicted for tomorrow, and then on and off during the week. We can use it!
Big plans for Sunday: a trip to Lowe's to pick up new caps for un-used sprinklers. One blew off in the back yard, and apparently our water bill is going to be high this month, because the water ran all night until dh noticed decreased water pressure in the morning, and he sleuthed to find out why. Water was running down the neighbor's driveway, but it was coming from our back yard! Well, with rain coming we don't need the sprinklers on for probably a week. So we will get some new sprinkler caps and glue and repair the broken one.
I started a thumb IV today, pt had no veins and the IV team was busy. I will usually numb the entry site (thumb IVs are PAINFUL!), and I got right in. There are often two good veins right over the distal joint. I felt good that we were able to get his study done, and not reschedule.
While working in the Stress Lab in the morning (waiting for patients to show up from Nuclear Medicine), I revised and updated the Policy and Procedure manual. Only about 14 pages, and check it off the list, that's done.
No Stars, you certainly were Suzy Homemaker today!! Congrats on getting all that done (hope all the activity didn't waken the gypsies)!
nursej22, did you have to relocate from your offices??
Ted, we keep pumps on standby in the Cath Lab, and many's the morning we have walked in and discovered they have walked during the night (i.e., been rounded up to be used elsewhere)!! So then we make frantic calls to Supply, because of course by the time we realize the pumps are missing, the patient is already rolling through the door! Scramble, scramble!
Hello herring, Joe, and Tweety!
Hope we ALL sleep well tonight!!
