Last Night

Last night really was a bad night at work to say the least! I do not know what it is about the month of December and losing babies. Maybe it is because this month is usually regarded as a, "happy/holy" month? Mother and Fathers are so excited to deliver, knowing that their little one(s) will be getting the best of care our hospital can offer, after all........ "hope lives here". But, last night my mother delivered twins, both stillborns, full term. They looked absolutely perfect in every way. The loss was devastating and I am still numb.

Grow Up!

My patient came in to be induced, and when she started into hard-core labor, her husband was sitting on the sofa coloring is his coloring book for goodness sakes, she said it calms him. Maybe by the time she has the baby he will be finished with the picture and we can hang it up in the unit!!!!!!

I swear I can not make this crap up!

When to call 911

A man came home to find out he was being burglarized, he was given a Colombian necktie.....he managed to get out of his home while the robbers were upstairs stealing his personal belongings....he managed to drive himself to the hospital....3 miles away, park his car, ride the elevator down and walk to the back of the hospital where the ER is located....once he was walked into the Er, he was immediately taken to the trauma were he was trying to hand his ticket to the nurses to have the ticket validated...he is 86 years old.... God Bless!!!!!

Much unlike the 25 year old male who has vomited one time in the past two days, and decides to call 911 for the free ride to the ER while he has two cars parked in the driveway!! Good Grief!!

Better than Match.com!

If asking the patient her twenty millionth question on admission,...

Oh and Thank God is was not in Labor YET....like her due date, number of prenatal visits, testing done during her pregnancy, pain level, acceptable pain level, receptive to learning, infant car seat, birthing plan, assistance at home, etc...

She declared that we spent more time with her asking these questions and many more that she had never thought possible than the questionnaire she completed on match.com......gotta love hearing that.........................................

something to say!

Hello All!

I do not have anything new to post. In the famous words of Kevin Arnold's' father from The Wonder Years, "Work is Work". And quite honestly it's been horribly.....boring, and I dare not say the OTHER word for I return to the Hell Hole tomorrow night for 12 hours of sheer and complete boredom, yet again.

One thing I can NOT stand is to be...not challenged....and recently I have not been challenged, other than keeping my right hand from holding down my left hand, so therefore I do not poke myself in the eye with a pencil point or too!!

Hope all is well with everyone else!
