    dear sabby, i know how hard it is to lose our furbabies!! i don't know if you are familiar with the rainbow bridge or not, but here is the poem from that site--- just this side of heaven is a place called rainbow bridge. when an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to rainbow bridge. there are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. there is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. all the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. the animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. they all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. his bright eyes are intent. his eager body quivers. suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. you have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. the happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. then you cross rainbow bridge together.... author unknown... i hope this will bring you some comfort. mary ann

    Good morning Sunday March 15!

    :nurse::nurse::nurse::wavey::wavey::wavey:good afternoon!! i hope you all won't be too shocked with seeing me post here!!! have not been to the site in awhile. many, many reasons--but primarily have been so busy. i don't think i mentioned it here, but as of last dec. i went on restricted or light duty. i can really only walk with my cane now, so, it's no more direct patient care. i sit at the computer most of the time; inputting info, doing pt. satisfaction call-backs, that sort of thing. it's definitely a lot easier on my body!!:yeah::yeah: the only thing is that it only lasts 9 months--after that, you have to find something else for yourself. either that, or go on full disability. i guess we'll see. since i have been on this light duty, i have been on day shift; after 35 yrs of nites, this is really kind of difficult; but i'll get used to it, i guess. my mom is doing pretty poorly--altho she just had her 92nd birthday. since that fall last june, tho, she has gotten super demented. she is still living in her home, tho, with my bro & sis-in-law in the basement apt. so, i hope you are all well. hope you've all had a great weekend.

    My husband is on a vent.

    My thoughts and prayers to you and your Family.
  8. GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS, It's going to be a lazy Sunday here. Bad weather is here--rain-snow mix right now, soon to be all snow. With more tp come tonite. Sorry, but since I have artificail hips, snow is my nemesis !! Cold, I can take, slippery streets---NO!! I have LOTS to do Monday including faxing my disability papers back to the office. Of course, have to also go to Mom's--I may have to call the MD for her--I think she may have C-Diff again. She's had 2 bouts of it already this fall, I'm not sure she can stand that again, she's so frail as it is. Oh well, we'll see. You all have a lovely day. mary Ann

    Good Morning Sunday 19th October

    Good Afternoon, Sorry to have been away from you all again. I don't know a thing that's going on here. When I was here last, I had brought my Mom back to her house after the Hospital stay. She was extremely weak & I was spending all of my time there & going back to work at night. She did need someone with her all the time. BRO & SIL live in the basement. She has been getting stronger, thank the Lors. Anyway I was SO Busy!!! Then Tues. evening on the way to work for 2300, I suddenly nearly doubled over with severe pain. My DH thought it best he took me to ER; I had fluids, MANY pain injections, IV Antibiotics, X-Rays, labs, you name it. Turns out I had a UTI. I was there 8 1/2 hrs. They sent me home & I went to bed almost innediately & stayed there until Sat. AM. Sat nite I went back to work!! I truly felt bad. Mom managed pretty well without me. Tomorrow AM I will go to her afterwork---the first time since I got sick. She has been urging me to get more rest--I guess I'd better. Well, now I need to get to bed as I work tonite. Hello to all!! See you all later

    Suzy, Thanks for thinking about me. Oh, so busy---but I think you know how worn out night shift can be---and I swear that in the last month or so, pt's are getting so much sicker!! I simply can hardly believe how much sicker our pt's are recently!! We're also getting more & more com-plicated chemo's at nite. You get some rest now, working 1 nite is so much worse then doing it every niute---this OLD body is pretty used to it!! LOL!!
