Stomach bug...

Bleh...I've got some nasty stomach bug right now. I had to call in sick to work last night, something I absolutely HATE doing.

At first I thought it was my body trying to adjust to a new medicine my doctor put me on, but after not having the medicine for over 24 hours and I still feel like this...I'm going to guess that's not it.

I hate feeling sick...as a matter of fact I hate feeling helpless in general.

Yes, I know that I work in a hospital, in which I am exposed to all sorts of germs and icky things...but still..I'm suppose to be super woman! lol

.....Okay, enough of the rant.

Aside from feeling like crap, life is great. I am thankful for my job at the hospital, I feel as though I am truly where I need to be, as far as my career is concerned. I will be switching to night shift pretty soon if not on my floor, another one. I just like working nights for some reason. Don't get me wrong, it's still crazy busy...but the hustle & bustle at the nurse's station is diminished somewhat.

Spring is in full force right now and it is absolutely gorgeous! I love Tennessee in the fall and spring time. The mountains are absolutely gorgeous!

When I start feeling better I want to go hiking soon and do a little photography while I'm at it.

Anyhow, I hope everyone is doing awesomely. Take care

WARNING...work related venting

To make a VERY long story short, I received report on 6 patients I was to have for the remainder of the shift. The nurse lost most of his information on the patients....he didn't give 3/4 of the patient's medicines today....he left me to do a transfer with no patient information....4 out of 6 patient's had not received pain medicine that they needed due to surgeries....one was left in pee for a few hours and to top it off he was looking up stuff on ebay on the medicine cart computer.

Okay, I'm usually a very upbeat individual that likes to spread peace and love wherever I go...

however when it comes to my patient's I am VERY protective of them.
I was LIVID...

I knew I was mad especially when half of my co-workers that have never seen me mad were backing away from me while I vented in the breakroom.
No one....and I mean NO ONE deserves to be treated that way ESPECIALLY when they are sick in the hospital.


Okay, I'm done.....

Great words to live by

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
