Ted, sounds like a good night out seeing Amy's play. Good that she's keeping whodunit a mystery. Why take out the fun?
BC, hope the cat checks out okay and you get some good advice.
Herring, you always come up with such great "I used to....." stories, making my life and accomplishments seem so average and dull.
Stars, so sorry to hear about Nannie. Hope she doesn't have to have surgery. As J22 says one of those half-walkers might be in order or a quad cane, but you know what's best based on her abilities. I've seen old people have to go to a nursing home because of a broken arm, so at least she can stay in a familiar place. Sorry you're stuck with the personal care. But I suppose you knew this day was coming and it's not going to get easier. Always come here and vent.
J22, glad the procedure went well and hope you start to heal and feel better in the long run. Shame on you for not being a good patient.
I was impressed to already hear from the company the hospital is associated with. I have a phone interview set up tomorrow with someone from their HR department. After that I suppose is an interview with the manager.
The company is a group of not-for-profit hospitals in the Tampa Bay area that formed a good while ago and has been thriving ever since, expanding into home health, urgent care centers, wellness centers and even tele-doctors where you can talk to a doctor on your phone and computer and get advice or a prescription for minor things. They were named by Fortune one of the top 100 places to work.
I made a resume and will look it over today and tidy it up. Basically I'm just describing my experience with my current employer, my education and a couple of awards I've gotten over the years, as well as my ANCC certification.
Not to sound vain, it's given my experience it's not a surprise my application was accepted for an interview. I just suck at interviews and if it's a competitive position I'm not necessary a shoo in.
For me, making a change at age 60 means it's now or never. I still have a good ten years left in me. They sent me a page of their benefits (a good sign??) and I noticed they have a choice of a traditional or Roth 401K. I also notice their in-network health care plan is much better than my current one. Otherwise the benefits seems pretty much the same. I just hope it's not too much of a pay cut but I'm jumping ahead and should focus on one thing at a time.
As always, I do appreciate anyone that's read this far in allowing me to talk.
I hope everyone has a great day!
