Halleluhia for vents!!!

Well, hello! Long time, ok, maybe not that long but still.
I finally, finally, finally, took care of a ventilated patient last night! I can't tell you what that was like, it was fabulous. For all my non-medical friends, don't think I'm cold to want someone on life support, but it really is a relief to have my hands busy on that level of patient. Granted, it was a stable vent but I still had my old habits kick in and turn, water, feed was an exciting task.
There's really nothing exciting for me to write about, I am in the middle of my three night stretch, so literally my days are sleeping and my nights are working. Tonight is the last night, then I'm not exactly sure what I will do with myself Friday, I'm strongly considering the zoo or History museum that is about a mile or so down the road from my house. It's supposed to be a HOT weekend here, like in the high 90s (I only hear about this from co-workers because I don't have a TV so I haven't watched a weather forecast since June and I guess I could get online and look but it really doesn't matter that much to me).
So, that's it for now.
Keep it real! Talk soon and be well!
