Aw Hell

Just a few points from the last 2 days.  I feel like shit & don’t feel very verbose.

Augusta floods when it rains, especially at the entrance/exit to the hospital I’m working at.  There was a floating car yesterday evening when we were finally dismissed and it took us an extra hour to get home.

My ear STILL hurts.  Really hurts.  The eardrum is perforated & if it doesn’t repair itself, I’ll have to have surgery to fix it.

My classmates are too fucking loud & it’s a good thing I didn’t have a firearm at yesterday’s post-clinical conference.  Because when the subject turned to someone’s dog needing Valium, I about lost my cool.

If you’ve ever seen a C-Section performed, you’d know why you hurt like a bitch afterwards.

I saw a non-cancerous growth the size of a small bowling ball removed today.  It filled the entire uterus & made the woman look pregnant.  I even have a picture as a keepsake.

More later, going to lie down & croak for now.

    My old Navy buddy’s Missus is going through the same drill. At least their girls are grown and on their own.

    You’re doing great! Still keeping up the grueling school schedule and with a perforated eardrum! Ouch!!

    You’ll be an RN before you know it!

    Yeah, I remember how much it hurt to have a c-section and that was over 25 years ago!

    I saw a C-section during my clinical rotations, and then on a regular basis when I worked in Resp. Therapy. They aren’t fun, but the prize is so great. The worst one was when the baby was dead. I had to call my boss in to take that one. I just couldn’t do it, and I wasn’t even related. My heart went out to that mom…no baby and major surgery.

    Keep going, hon. Get the antibiotic, and hang in there. Your ear drum will probably heal itself…at least I hope so.
