Best Magic Trick Ever

Today, I worked in Central Triage.  Grandmom called about her grandson who swallowed a dime over the weekend.  He did have one bowel movement at school but she was unable to look for the dime.
I love getting into the history of what and how this happened.  Little grandson who at the barbers on Saturday and he and the other boys were doing magic tricks and since he didn't want the other boys to find were he hide the dime, he did the best he could hiding it ~~he swallowed it!!!

I'm stealing again

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's meme. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme. 
Let's go!!!

I'm still here!

Yes, I'm still here! It's been a long time since I posted. I'm working in Peds again and I love it most days! It's never the children who get to me-we'll that's not completely true, but it's usually their screwed up, idiot parents that make my nights miserable!
I'm still a die hard Flyers fan & having a partial ticket plan has been great this season.  My family has not changed either except for I'm not the one with broken bones or in a cast this time-Thank God!  Gotta Go off to help a little one out.
I'm really going to try and blog more often this year, I've missed everyone! Take Care and Be Safe!

Kids can really make me laugh!

We finally did it!  I have always considered myself a dog person. We have had a few dogs over the years. However, for the past 8 years or so we have been dog-less.  I truly miss having a dog! I do not miss the puppy days: the chewing, house-breaking, etc...except for the puppy breath. Damn, I wish someone could bottle that smell! Yummy.

Recently we visited the ASPCA and walked out with a dilute calico 8 month kitten...I have never been so happy with our choice to bring a new family member into our home! Miss Skittles has brought all of us such joy!

We have been reading some books about kittens and cats to the little ones. And recently learned that they should be treated as lactose intolerant and as much as Miss Skittles may seem that she wants milk or dairy like products, it is best not to give her any, and trust me this is a hard thing to do...

So my #4 asked if I had ever caught Miss Skittle on the kitchen table after they had left for school and I replied of course I have! Why? Then #4 asked my if I had ever caught Miss Skittles eating her toast, which by the way-#4 eats every morning for breakfast, and I said, No. Why? Then she asked is it because Miss Skittles is lac-toast intolerant? Bwahahaha

I love kids!!

Shark Week and Vacation

As some of you may remember from my post last summer we had a close encounter with a shark in the Outer Banks! And what would vacation be like with out having such as experience? Not normal obvisiously....
Today we saw a shark...yes not a dolphin....a shark yet again few feet from shore, urg!!!
I think it would be safe to say, they are truly my biggest fear!
Two weeks vacation and the start of The 25th Anniversary of SharkWeek is going to pretty much guarantee for me to have a Sunshine&SandCastles vacation, thanks Discovery Channel....hahaha

The most painful month of the year

I recently lost my Grandmother who raised me, along with my Father. Now, both have passed and I feel more alone and depressed as ever:( Just as I am able to get a grip on my fathers passing. I lose my grandmother. Both of their birthdays are in July and with in a week of each other. It's been a terrible two weeks. I feel like letting go everyday and no one understands me and what I am going through!?!? PSO

Pretty Shitty Post

As I promise at least one post per week.

I know this isn't the type of post everyone was hoping for however it is that day of the year when my mind and body turn to mush.

I would of hoped by now being that it has been 2 years that the death of my father would become easier to handle his birthday. But it has not?!

And for some reason I can not understand why?  I think about him every single day, probably in fear that I will forget him, forget what he looked like......I'm not sure?

Whoever said "time heals all wounds" was not correct or if they are could send me an email as to when this sadness will pass I would be appreciative because Im waiting!

As I said last year, Nothing today is going to make me feel better.......I would appreciate this day to have to myself so that I can cherish the memories I have left by myself uninterrupted.

Scott Hartnell-1, Nathan Fillion-0

Wow, 2 posts in 2 days, this must be a record for me.  I want to thank everyone who helped me with that enormous favor from Scott Hartnell, that he would sign my cast.  IT WORKED!  please stop tweeting him now, I promised him I would get the word out to stop bothering him.
Therefore, Scott has 1point and Nathon Fillion has 0 points.  Because I'm sure Nater-tater hasn't sent a picture of himself holding twine, if he had....twitter would be lit up like a Christmas tree, The Bloggess would be unable to control herself.

So what was my experience like:  Scott sent me a tweet yesterday saying to meet him @ the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees at 11am,  he offered to sign my cast after practice.

To begin with, he is extremely tall whether he is on skates or not, he is extremely social able too.
He was nice to ask about my injury & how many reconstructed surgeries I had.  I didn't have the heart to tell him, it may not be my last surgery as I'm sure I scared him off a little.

Of course, he signed my cast #hartnelldown and I would like to thank him again....Thank You,

Hello & Goodbye Nathan Fillion vs. Scott Hartnell

Welcome new followers!!! So excited to find out I now has 80+, that is AWESOME:-))

Therefore, Hello!! Shoot me over a comment and introduce yourself.

I am once again very sorry for the lack of posts, but I have been super busy....oh, why you ask? Well, I had my elbow reconstructed AGAIN, why not right? It is my third, yes that is not a typo, it's the third surgery in 1 year and 2nd elbow surgery in the past 6 months---fun times-lol.

I'm in a long cast right now from pretty much my shoulder to hand & I'm going to be in this cast for the next 4-6 weeks.

Nothing else is new, I still have Flyers tickets and I've been lucky enough to have someone drive me to games, it's been fun.

Now is the time I'm going to ask for an enormous favor!!

If you do not read The Bloggess, link is to the right, I suggest doing so, because she is the funniest person EVER! Now, Jenny- otherwise know as The Bloggess has this thing for Nathan Fillion and she has been asking him to hold some twine and have a friend take your picture while doing so. Now, I don't know about you, but it seems very reasonable to me and he is yet to send a picture:-(((

I like Scott Hartnell and this hockey season has been so amazing for him , im very happy for him and he has been donating his own money to his charity. If your not sure who Scott is, just do a quick google search.

The Bloggess, Jenny's followers are great and they are sending messages via twitter to ask Nathan Fillion for the twine picture but he's holding out. His twitter account is @NathanFillion, if you would like to help too.

Now finally, comes my favor, would you guys mind sending tweets to Scott Hartnell (@Hartsy19) and bug him to sign my cast one day after practice for me? I'll love you forever! Okay, then it's a deal.

My most famous post-Smoke coming from your vagina

Well, hello most famous post was called, "My vagina is on Fire".  And for years it has bothered me , the keywords that are used to find my blog: so here they are in no particular order:

Smoke coming out of my vagina
Smoke coming from my vagina
Why is my vagina on fire
"smoke" coming from my vagina

and thankfully some normal keywords:

broke elbow

Let me tell you, first hand...any smoke coming from the vagina is NOT normal and you should contact your Dr. not a Nurse, or better yet the Fire Department!!

Second a broken elbow, should always require Dilaudid-that is normal

Too funny!!

This post is from: Dr. Grumpy, with whom I love dearly!!  Enjoy!!

I've got a junkie over in the ICU, who overdosed on a bunch of stuff yesterday. She was on a ventilator (a breathing machine) this morning, but they were going to see if she improved enough today to get her off it.

So I called over there a minute ago to talk to her nurse:

Dr. Grumpy: "How'd she do this morning?"

Nurse Icu: "She's more awake, and we got her off the ventilator, but may have to put her back on again."

Dr. Grumpy: "Why? Is she still having trouble breathing?"

Nurse Icu: "No, she's just a bitch."

A day I Really miss my Dad and I can't believe what he told my daughter

Today being the New Year and I felt a little down today...... I miss my Dad so much!  I thought someone once said, "time heals all wounds", well it doesn't and that person is an a--hole just for saying that!  But anyway today I miss my Dad a lot, he was a very funny guy

Now, as many of you know, my daughter has been labeled as, "somewhere on the autism spectrum,"  I'd like to shoot that person too, because where exactly on the spectrum she is, I'd like to freaking know!!!!....

My daughter takes things too literally...but enough about that, onto the funny crap--- my dad told her once.

Many years ago, my Dad unfortunately had a toe amputated, about the 3rd one in, don't ask why because I have know idea, I'm getting old and in all honestly it really doesn't matter...

But anywho, we went to the hospital to visit him, And in complete utter seriousness, he looked at her dead in the eyes, not even cracking a smile and told her the "Tooth Fairy did!"

Today, at the dinner table, she kindly told us "you know, once Grandpop had a loose tooth and a loose toe, and the Tooth Fairy took his toe instead! I personally had to leave the room because I was laughing so hard.

Now tonight she is asleep with 2 pairs of socks on, thick winter boots, scared out of his mind, worrying that if her tooth does fall out or not--- The Tooth Fairy is coming for her toes instead

It is days like this I miss him dearly.......

I miss you Dad.......

Happy New Year!! The New York Rangers Can Suck It!!!!!

Happy New Year!

Tonight, I am working with Dr. A--hole, you know, the kind of person I'm talking about.  I'd rather be standing on the corner of 34th and Spruce Streets---- giving out free blow-jobs than to be working with this prick.

He's the same goof ball, who's license plate says' "GoldFinger!"  I think that is enough said!

Happy New Years anyway.....I have to finish this lovely shift without getting fired for saying something like,"Don't be such a _____Fill in the Blank Yourself", so I can get a few hours sleep before the Winter Classic tomorrow!!

Thank you to the NHL for backing-up the game by 2 hours, so I can read the inside of my eyeballs a few extra minutes, and to all The Rangers Fans, SUCK IT!  Let's GO FLYERS!!!!!
