Hey ya, been offline a few days, working. One more night and I'm off for another stretch, this I could get used to. Day shift I wasn't crazy about working 3 in a row all the time, because let's all agree that the degree of energy and happenings on the day shift is definitely higher than nights so you can get so tired after a 12 hour shift. Nights is a different tired. But, working three nights in a row is good because then you get in the mode of staying up at night and sleeping during the day.
Anyway, blah blah. I woke up about an hour ago, just waking up and now I'm going to go do a quick workout then get ready for another night. Work has been ok, I'm definitely not feeling 100% challenged, which is something I need at work. There have been days, but not a lot. Last night I had a lady (sorry to all my non-medical friends, I'm gonna go off here for a minute) who had two clots in her SVC and one in her R IJ so she went to IR, had two venous sheaths in her bilateral brachial veins with TPA running all night. She also had heparin infusing in an IV, I told her when she wanted to get up to go to the bathroom, I was like, "no, if you fall or bump yourself...I don't want that pressure on me!" She was the nicest lady, and hopefully the tPA broke up her clots and she won't be in the ICU again tonight. It was interesting, I've never had a patient like that before, and I got to access an implanted port, which I've only done like once. That's been my excitement, they have a pt going up on CVVH but I haven't done their class (so I can't take the patient) bummer.
Life has been good here, hot the last couple days so I've been sleeping with the AC on. I think it was 97 on Wednesday! Ey! I went for a pedicure with Maggie (my friend) on Tuesday, it was ok, not the best pedi I've ever had. Quick, but I did get a new color on my toes, it's a purpley/marroony/creamy color. I like it. At least my feet got scrubbed up nice and clean (c:
I'm getting my haircut and eyebrows waxed tomorrow (I'm in desperate need of the brows, it's a jungle up there! and my hair is a bit shaggy for me) I'm debating what I'm going to do with my hair, I'm thinking I might grow it a little. Juli's wedding is Sept 6 so that gives me a couple months to let it fill out...and if it doesn't fly, then I can always chop it again, right? Right.
Ok, I'm gonna drink a little more water, then go sweat it up. Hope everyone is having a good day, working hard but not too hard! Are Melissa and Kari back yet from maternity leave?
