really dude?

sorry i have not written in so long, i don't have to much to say except that i'm very busy with the kiddo's and yes, my job still sucks most days.

the only new things are:

a. if you are going to stay overnight with your loved one, please where pajamas. i do not like seeing you come out of the bathroom in the middle of the night- in your underwear, it's bad enough i have to look at perineums, and lochia, let only your ugly ass in stained underwear!

b. evidence based practice has confirmed that rm#2 is graded to the right- if your wife does have a postpartum bleed, it will run out of her to the floor and if we're lucky enough down and out into the hallway---watch you're step!

c. don't take the liberty of showing you're loved one how to use the breast-pump you look like an idiot, seriously ring for a nurse to show your wife---that was gross and i really would prefer seeing her use it correctly than you!

d. why on god's green earth would the two of you EVEN consider to have sex only 2 days post delivery than not only ruined my day, but my year---good grief

School officially started yesterday am, well at least for my oldest 2. #3 starts his first full day in the morning and is scared out of his mind, you can just tell. Of course the old two are telling him wild and crazy stories about taking the bus---but I guess that is just what older siblings thrive on:)


Number 4-started preschool 3 days a week for 6 hours, she is also nervous, and is just starting to give up her, "baby"-- Baby is a small , and at one time flurry stuffed animal Grover- now his fur is matted down- she mostly carriers him. by one leg, now that leg is 1 inch longer than the other. Over the past year, because she loves Dave Grohl/Foo Fighters, she has started to call him Baby Dave Go-Go and occasionally will say, "baby Dave Do-Do:)).God Bless her little heart


Hope all the other mothers are surviving the start of school too.

Patients:)

Today, I had the honor of taking care of a patient who is not only a Pharmacist, but wears multiple caps, Pharmacist/RN/Dr/new mother, she is an utter complete a-hole along with her husband, God Bless her new infant, she'll have a long life to bear.....

Saying Goodbye is not easy

On the one year anniversary of this blog, I have a few things to say, or a story to tell:

Goodbye to Mr. G
This is a true story though the names have been changed.
Today, I said Goodbye to Mr. G. My longest life-time friends, father. Katherine and I lost touch for a few years during our early twenties, but found our way back again in our late twenties. After, I started to have children, her daughter Angie started to help us out during the summer with months as a mother's helper. I told Katherine, Angie was so good that's why we continued to have more children, because she was such a great help:)), and Katherine smiled at me and said that is why she got pregnant so young, so Angie could help us out.
If you do not know Katherine already:
Katherine had Angie very young. Katherine's mother was very unsupportive of her pregnancy. Katherine once told me in tears the first thing her mother said to her, when she announced she was pregnant was, "what am I going to tell my friends?"
I was Katherine's best friend for 11 years and did not even know she was pregnant, she keep her pregnancy hidden from everyone else except her immediate family, looking back I can not believe I did not even know she was pregnant in high-school.
Katherine's father never hide the fact that she was his favorite child, mostly because I'm sure it drove her mother crazy. This was well known to me even as a young child. But, he become her biggest supporter I have ever seen. When Katherine announced her pregnancy at home, her father supporter her, when the relationship with Angie's father failed, he supported her-- never financially but always emotionally. Mr. G was a rock.
Mr. G was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease many years ago, but only about 8 years ago did it become well evident. I once, had to pick Angie up at Grandpop's house, and there Mr. G was on at the front door, shaking uncontrollable, with a smile on his face, kisses and hugs to me as always and a compliment on my children.
He once stood in that same doorway not to many years before as the man, who could literally put the fear of God into me, but there he stood feeble and frail, not the man I remembered.
Today, it was like saying goodbye to my own family member, the realization my best friend will never be the same, it changes you, makes you more tough around the edges, sad to know, my best friend will never be as she once was..................

Happy Anniversary!!!!!! 1 Year

Well, Thank You for reading for this blog over the past year.

I'm really not sure, why I even started this blog, but it is here for me and my thoughts and expressions, and I thank you for sharing it with me this past year, therefore Happy Annivary to me and you:))

You have the "challenging bad butt kids" class (remember this is a pretend school and anyway I can't say ass on my blog 'cause it's so unQueenly and I might get fined or something).They are jumping up and down, cursing, and throwing things at you. Please sit down, followed by the next time I tell you to sit down and be quite and you do not follow my request we'll start with one tsp of chlorahydrate...that will definitely work.

3. Someone in your family or a friend has started a blog. They think it is anonymous but you have figured it out. They are saying derogatory things about you. Do you tell them or do you read it for awhile?How would you handle it?
I would read the blog for awhile and then I would take that person out to lunch, a drop hints about things they have written on the blog to a point that they will know I am onto them.

The problem with healthcare medicine

One of the many problems with medicine is all the freaking, unnecessary tests.

I was a patient recently of some, "Big Named hospital" and I recently received an itemized bill for all the test performed, like the pregnancy test, that I insisted I did NOT need. Why, you ask?
First with the last pregnancy not only did I have a completed previa, it turned out my placenta loved all of my previous c-section scars, especially since I had already had 3 c-sections- therefore I had an accreata, which I was monitored very closely with during the ENTIRE pregnancy, only to find out after my delivery a few days later, it was a percerta(worse case scenario), noted I said a few days after I delivered I was told this, because that's how long it took them to finally decide to wean my from the vent, replace more blood and bring my back from the otherside in the ICU etc.......

I had a great Oncologist, who helped with the c-section(better at identifying large and small vessels), anyway they removed my uterus, tubes and cervix no less, and it was preformed at the same f-ing hospital were I was sick, they have EPIC(medical/online medical records) and I told them this and said really you have EPIC access, yes, then look it up?.....seriously now they are charging my insurance for some stupid test that couldn't even be true, and trust me I'M NOT THE VIRGIN MARY!

UUgghhhh! Family

Well, I guess I really pissed them off, the in-laws, I wrote, " I was going to write something nice about my, "family members", but I decided not too, on facebook.
Now their not talking to me...aaaaa go f-yourselves. Really, did you think I may have been talking about something else or someone else entirely? Get a Grip! My Life and The Other Half's do not completely and entirely revolve around you folks.

I really wish I could have enough money to get up and move the my family to the otherside of the country.

I have to go to work again on Thursday and over the weekend. We have a lot of gastroschisis babies due in the next month or so, "They'll fuck ya, everytime". They have a shittest fetal strips and 15% die in utero by 35 weeks, we end up delivering those babies for one small possible decel, and sleep cycle that looks at little flat...good times ahead, good times.

I saw a super cool TRAP sequence at work. We did an RFA on the "blob" and then cut the cord so there was no cord entanglement later, pretty interesting to say the least.

Since I work in Labor and Delivery, I talk about vagina's, vaginal deliveries, foley caths in not so cool areas, the craziest tattoos I have ever seen in the strangest places, firecracker deliveries, where one actually rips and tears all around their vaginal area and down into their a*&hole. It was really uncalled for, it's my job and it's true so F-ing deal with it, I do.

Sunday Stealing






Sunday Stealing: The Double Stealing Meme

1. If you could turn back the hands of time to correct one wrongdoing, what event would you choose and why? My oldest friend and I were not close by any means right out of high school. She became pregnant and I did not even know until after she had her daughter. I can not believe how scared and unsupported she was by her own family. I wish kept in touch with her during that time. Good news is we have been very close since I got married.









2. Are you one for tradition? If so, what traditions do you strongly believe in? If not, what makes tradition hypocritical? I try to keep the family traditions of spending time with my family on holidays, however being a nurse and having to work every other holiday pretty much put a damper on that.

3. You were taking part in an event and you had to crossplay, who would you crossplay as and why?

4. If you only had one day left to live, how would you spend your last day? Would you be tempted to live fatally if you knew you were to die the next day, and if so, what extreme measures would you take? I would spend my last day with my husband and kids doing absolutely nothing but lying around snuggling in bed--yes, I'm completely boring:)

5. What are your top five sinful materialistic items, ones you'd expect from others including those closest to you? I don't really think I have any, but I do LOVE my iphone









6. I am...completed exhausted, recovering from night-shift again is like functioning in a haze

7. I feel...tired









8. I see...sick people- (Nurse's Humor)


9. I need...a mental day off from work soon!








10. I love...The sound of a thunder storm


11. I wish...the weather will be nice tomorrow, and we can sit at the pool club all day.

13. I hear...the sound of rain hitting my window.

Public Service Announcement # 41.

Monday, July 6, 2009

No Way!

An old patient of mine, decided to call the Labor and Delivery department to let me know she is expecting once again this August!

It was very thoughtful of her, you see... she is a G14, P12 and I delivered her last 7, yes, thats right..I was the nurse on when she delivered her last 7 children. Hard to believe but true, she specifically asked if she could call me when she goes into labor with number 13. Kind -of - an -honor, kind-of Crazy!

Super Delivery

Last night, I had a wonderful delivery for me--- anyway. Patient was a G2, P1 laboring patient, who was pretty sure her water broke on the way to the hospital---husband pretty much confirmed this too.

She came in pretty upset, she only started to have ctx. over the past 30 minutes, and her water probably broke 10 minutes prior to her arrival. She was screaming or shouting something about an epidural, but after making it through triage in a record time of 2 minutes she delivered a beautiful Baby Girl via her pant-leg and amazingly enough, did not sustain an tears and or lacerations. Though her pants were laid to rest and the fact she was insisting on an epidural post delivery---it was an amazingly fast delivery.

Mother and baby were healthy and happy as could be:) It made my night. See, somedays I really do enjoy my job!

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Really!?

So, today I spent much of the day at the Pool Club. I finally broke down and decided to buy some extra snack foodie things for the kiddo's. The total came to $5.50. I handed the young girl, she was about 16 yrs. old a $20.00 bill. She turned to the girl behind her, who looked about 10 and asked her how much change she should give me. WTF?! Is this what I have to look forward to as these young people take over the world.

Good Grief!!

Welcome Home!!!!

Yes, I have returned from my wonder trip to California, and while I truly enjoyed my time on the West Coast, it is good to be home again with the children.



I can not believe that we managed to get away from the chaos of home life for 7 days and 6 joyous nights. AAHhhhhh!!! What a joy:))



So, how was the trip, you ask.......????? First, what is up with American Airlines charging $55.00 for one extra bag?? The airport and flying is always my favorite thing to do:))



When we arrived to the airport there had to be 200 military men and women checking in at the same time...and lucky for me when my bag weighed over 54 pounds and not the required 50 pounds, my husband unzipped my suit case, there on the floor and tossed the contents all over the place to grab some things that were heavy, like shoes, by the way which were on the bottom to place those items into another bag, and when he was doing so, he managed to toss my cute hot pink bra and xxx- panties etc... all over the place...thank you the compliments, Uncle Sam, it was great for the servicemen to have something to think about for their flight, and yes, thank you to the Other Half too!



I am the biggest chicken when it comes to flying, and mental note to PCP- Ativan 2 mgs. does NOT work, yet again! I only screamed out loud two times, making the stewardess, comes and ask if she could anything as when were ascending into the beautiful skies. The Other Half, I think asked for a gag but that may have been me just hearing things. My knuckles were so white and the Rosary could not be said fast enough....I swore we were never going to get off the tarmac and into the air. We seemed to bounce up and down way to many times and not seem to be going fast enough to actually get off the ground, but yes, we did...I had the crazy thought that we would possibly skid off the runway and explode off the side of the road, maybe due to the weight of all that luggage, mine being the main reason, or possibly that the crew would just drop the load onto the ground and I would never see any of my things again...Yes, crazy I know...what an imagination.



First stop was The Sunset Marquis, I would highly recommend staying there, we had a wonderful time. We met many musicians, of course. And experienced our first earthquake and aftershock while at the Sunset. We had free passes to Equinox gym and saw more celebrities there. I made reservations at Mr. Chow a month before our trip, the food was fantastic, Do NOT drink any champagne! I was kidding when I said it would probably cost $30.00 per glass,---no it cost $45.00, and I drank two glasses. I'm glad The Other Half picked up an extra 24 hour shift prior to us leaving for the trip. Gosh, I'll be paying for that meal for a while, but it was worth it!!



The Grove was okay, same stores as in this area, nothing fancy, however the Farmers Market had great food and vendors. I had some delicious butter cookies with Jimmy's on them!!! Yummy!!



We stayed in Pasadena at The Langham Hotel and Spa for the rest of our 3 days. The hotel is gorgeous!!! We met Dennis Rodham and his family was very nice, but that dude is tall and freaking scary to say the least!:))

Venice Beach was quite depressing, something very one should see once, but then get the heck out of there. Some homeless man had a cardboard sign, stating he would work for marijuana?....Really are you serious???

Santa Monica was lovely, along with Malibu and riding up the Pacific Coast Highway was breathtaking.....

We saw one Large bush fire in the distance only to realize it was not far from the hotel...that was a little scary, but overall,....I would love to move out there and soak up the sun, sand and surf with the mountains in the background for the rest of my life, AAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How was your day???

How was your day??? Well, here is an update on the last day or two I have worked.

We had an emergency C-Section, that took over 2 hours to close her. Why you ask because I was working with Dr. Slow-Pants good Lord I hate doing sections in the middle of the night. My feet were actually starting to ache in the OR, and by the way, seriously an 11 sutures count and 40 laps, she was a prime section for Christ Sakes!!!!

Second delivery was the second most bloody delivery I have ever attended. I am NOT kidding when I say, the vaginal delivery room looked like a triple homicide, blood was not only pouring out of MOM, due to the lovely 3 rd degree laceration and uterine atony, but the room obvisiously is slight graded to the left because the blood ran out into the hallway, boy nothing like making the NICU team uncomfortable and wanting to throw up(that was actually funny:). Mom will not sitting correctly for a long time let alone sex will probably never be the same, I think it was a 4th degree but that was just me, but what would I know I was too busy massaging her uterus, hanging IV fluid, giving methergine, getting blood and calling for more backup. It took over 3 hours to sow her up. Her doo-da was so swollen and bruised, she will most like have a hematoma, putting in the foley was horrible. Good Lord!!!

Good Grief and they are about to become parents.

Overheard at the grocery store!

The other day, I ran to the store to pick up a few things for The Other Half's Big Birthday dinner.

Not to bad considering I only needed a few items. I was completely and utterly exhausted after working a 12 hour night-shift that some how turned into a 14 hour night shift with a 2 hour commute, but that in itself is another story.

Overheard while placing my groceries from my shopping cart to the register was: "I make loads of money....And since my wife and I are newly divorced, meeting new women has been harder than I thought." Me, I'm thinking, "Really because I'm sure your appearance has nothing to do with it!"

Man was 50 something, almost totally bald, dress shirt- nice shirt by the way, buttoned down, one button to low, sort looks like Chewbacca, 2 thick gold chains wearing sweat pants--too loose and too short, and a pair of black socks with navy blue crocs.

Go Figure!

Some people just Smell!!!

Okay, it's bad enough, I deal with Labor and Delivery and Afterbirth's screaming women, and incensitive FOB's and Family Members and or whatever......but please Lord, give me one patient soon who literally does not smell.

Please Lord, do not let them bring in horrible smelling McDonald's that will sit at the bedside or have them place it some where in the room that I can not find so it does not stink up the entire room and or floor of the rest of the night. Also, if you could just give the family a bad stomach virus if they even think about eating in front of their woman, while she is laboring that would be great too. Because that is just down right rude.

Please Lord, let one FOB/Husband not have the worst smelling feet under the beautiful sun you have created for just one week out of my life I would be forever grateful.

Please Lord, let us not have another patient and family members with a bad case of Pediculosis capitis for the rest of the year.

Please , Please....

don't like to say this, but....

Al rightly then....

I really do not like working with some of our doctors.......

a). Dr. Know -It-All...seriously, he does...he writes all the medical and surgical stuff on what our Unit does....pretty crazy---he has the sickest sense of humor---very dry, not sure on how to read him...but over all I would want him to take care of me.

b). Dr. Mc Lovely-very smart-very good looking, the patients love him...hard to not like him.....sometimes, he can be a smart-ass(okay pretty much all the time)...but who cares...he hardly gets along with his co-horts in crime, but it is a love hate relationship, kind of has the same relationships with the nurses too.

c). Dr. Overly-Cautious...Love her, but almost too caring...thinks every patient is going to... abrupt, is in preterm labor, is pre eclampic etc....-Love her...teases relentlessly..in a good way and is a great teacher!

Then the others.......

d.) Dr. Who? never work with her...maybe once in the past 3 months....

e.) Dr. Nip-Tuck- get surgeon, great at managing the patients, does not get enough/or take enough credit.

f.) Dr. Don't -bother me---takes the cake.....he has his own issues...fifty going on three, completely lazy and immature, bordering on sexual misconduct.....he is going to either get killed by a nurse soon or he is going to kill a patient soon...not sure which will happen first, but I'm betting on one of us to take him out!

Don't look!


Oh Lord! That is all I have to say....it was so strange! You know, when you shouldn't look, but you can't help yourself, mostly for curiosity sakes...well now I wish I had not.........

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

thank you

There are so many days that I question myself, if I should continue on with my new job....because it has been the most emotionally challenging job I have ever held.

As soon as I decide, tonight is going to be the end of it...I will officially request a transfer, something big happens at work and I change my mind.

Saturday night- shift was one of those days...I decided that I will call Human Resources on Monday and beg for a transfer.

Then I was told by another RN to check my mailbox.....in my mailbox I found a lovely card from a patient and her family...thanking me for all of the time and emotional support I gave them, during the lose of their infant, along with gifts.

It is something we as Rn's do got see often enough, or if ever, and then it reminds me why I choose nursing as a career in the first place.

Looks like I'll be staying a little while longer.

After all, "Hope Lives Here"!
