Tired But Educated
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      7 comments

Oof - spent the day at an all day class. Learned about interviewing cardiac, neuro, and pulmonary patients. Even with breaks, it was tiring. Fanny fatigue in the hard chairs. ... Read more

Did you hear about the car that runs on water? **Wow! Really?** Yeah, Gulf of Mexico water (snicker) ... Read more
Night Shift Rules!
Saturday, July 10, 2010      6 comments

After blogging last evening about how horrible it was (and believe me, it was frustrating), we night shifters took over when the evening crew (docs & nurses) left. We have one doc at night, and we don't have separate teams. Generally, the pace i... Read more
What A Mess
Saturday, July 10, 2010      6 comments

Got to work this evening, and TPTB (the powers that be) have made changes in the patient flow in the Emergency Department - again! Total cluster when we got in, and, almost 3 hours later, it's not clearing out as fast as I'd like. ... Read more
Urgh, Sick Last Night
Thursday, July 08, 2010      6 comments

Since I worked overtime the night before, and didn't given the pups a walk, I made sure I took them on a longer walk than usual (2.6 miles) before I went to bed. Slept well, felt fine. No problem. Got to work - about 3 hours later I was having b... Read more
More Overtime - Boo

I had a mammogram yesterday morning - they used the digital machine, so it wasn't as unpleasant as it occasionally has been in the past. Plus, the tech could see the result... Read more

Holiday Explosives

Some people where I live (New Mexico) like to shoot off fireworks for holidays - New Years Eve, Christmas, definately the 4th of July - various others as they get inspired. I ... Read more
Ah, Shoot!
Sunday, July 04, 2010      4 comments

I stayed up most of the day. Not deliberately, just doing one more thing and one more thing. About noon, I was awake enough that I went to the gym - did the treadmill and strength circuit. I went to Petsmart afterward. Checked out bird cages, pa... Read more
Holiday Weekend Begins!
Friday, July 02, 2010      9 comments

Of course, I'm at work - signing in the patients that want to be seen . Some are true emergencies - fell and injured ... possible stroke ... urinary catheter clogged ... Some aren't - I've had this cough for 2 weeks ... lost my meds a week a... Read more
Loose Budgie
Friday, July 02, 2010      3 comments

There's been a green budgie in my yard for a few days. It won't let me get closer than about 3 feet from it. I feed the wild birds, and have a big tree out front. I restocked the seed 2 days ago, but the feeders are almost empty already, and I d... Read more
Turn Over Day - Got It Done!
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      6 comments

Not the turnovers we eat, darn it. My change from days to night shift. Stayed up all night, got the dishes and laundry done, hit the gym at 0430. Treadmill and circuit trai... Read more
Last Minute Rush for Steps
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      2 comments

I spent the whole day lazing around - I'd stayed up last night, catching up on TIVO's shows - fell asleep about 03 for a couple of hours. I should have walked the pusp then, but I was thinking I'd watch just "one more show, OK, another one" unt... Read more
Rainy Afternoon
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      4 comments

After staying up most of yesterday (almost 24 hours, but who's counting?), I slept some last night - flip, flop ... flip, flop. Hate when that happens. Went to my massag... Read more
