It's the weekend! It's Saturday Oct 27th - page 2

Yippee. I haven't worked much this past week, being sick, but I'm still glad it's the weekend. There's just been too much drama for this Mama. My son and his girlfriend have been a huge headache.... Read More

    Morning you beautiful creatures! My visitation was canceled this am, so I am stuck here on the computer lol ... got tons of housework to do. And need to rearrange furniture because the couch is blocking the heat from circulating (I keep it facing the sliding door in the warmer months.) Maybe exercise (ROFL!!) Work this afternoon - I can go in early and make up some time, or go in later as scheduled. Hmm, rainy sleepy day, what do you think (giggle)

    Quote from DutchgirlRN
    Love the critters! and I'm sorry about the drama - I can only imagine. My son has only had one relationship before this one, so I don't know how he'll do - hopefully better than his dad and I, sigh.. {{{{{{{{Dutchgirl}}}}]]]

    Cute pix!

    Quote from jnette
    Ex MIL passed away on Tues.. the very night I had written about her condition.
    Love and prayers for the dh and family, wow. You guys barely had time to breathe after Muttie... Were you close w/ her? {{{{{{{{{{{{{J'nette and dh and all}}}}}}}

    Quote from nursemary9
    pt's may be in isolation.

    Most are MRSA & C-Difff.
    But we sometimes have others!!
    We are having outbreaks in our area now, non-hospitalized people ... everyone is terrified because of the "sometimes fatal" (as is emphasized on the news) supergerms. Wash your hands wash your hands, don't touch your eyes or pick your nose til after... (ok, teasing about the last one)

    Didn't I read a few years ago that most health care professionals, if you swabbed their nasal passages, would come up + for MRSA? I wouldn't be surprised.

    I remember like 5 out of 20 pts being on precautions back in 03, sounds like it is much much worse now...

    Quote from agent66
    The good news is I go back to work a week from tomorrow, can hardly wait, who would have thought I would ever say that.
    No more play dates with the Muffiers then lol

    jnette - :icon_hug:

    Good morning all . . I too couldn't sleep past 6 a.m. Weird. So got up, made coffee and read my paper. Today is ds's last soccer game and I get to go!

    My daughter actually had more drama regarding dating than my older boys ever did. Her former boyfriend showed up here with a garbage filled with all the presents she had ever given him and dumped them in the street. There are many other stories - suffice it to say it is not fun.

    I too wish everyone a good weekend. Working or not -

    Hope you are all doing as best you can today.
    Netters so sorry to read of your Ex MIL but what a relief to know she is not going to suffer through that horrid disease anymore.
    Dutch I hope and pray for a peaceful resolution in your DS and his girlfriend predicament. Hmmmm times like this I look at my dog and thank her for being my only 'child'. I could not have babies but do have two step adult kids 24 and 28 and I love them as my own.
    Hang in there hon and pray your son sees commonsense.

    Happy Saturday to you all.....
    It is 8:35am where I am right now, with a 14 week old & 2 1/2 year old puppies, you don't get to sleep in very long...if I get to sleep in until 7 am on my days off, that is lucky. They got up early and one of them got into a bag that was on the floor of one of the room that I THOUGHT was closed. When I got up I heard my oldest licking something in a chocolate bar to be a little more careful making sure that my doors are closed. Did you know that light chocolate is like meth to dogs...Once they start eating it they have to have more......well Maxie hadn't had any for a while so I guess it is okay.

    We just started working 12 hour shifts and I love them.....I usually have at least 3 days off a week and sometimes if I work it right I can have up to 5 days off at a time....I love having some home time...

    To all that have written before, I hope that things start to get better in your life.
    jnette- so sorry to hear of your mil passing...she is in a better place and she doesn't have to suffer anymore....
    Dutch- I hope that things resolve in your teens life...I hated that part of my life...

    Well I need to get ready soon for a Christmas card class....I will be 10 more cards ahead so that I will have them ready for the Christmas card list....

    Have to go back to work Sunday, but probably will only have to work part of the day Monday to attend one of the girls that I worked with funerals. but that is in another post...

    Have a wonderful weekend, all that comes after me.....

    At my hospital we achieved four or fewer patients for a nurse assigned an isolation patient. It took 12 years of documentation, meetings, and waiting. Now they want to assign the same nurse to 4 patients in isolation. But when we started ot could be ten.
    They just won't provide extra staff for the acuity of patients so chemo and isolation are 1:3, Vents on tele are 1:3.

    Gotta share this!
