Happy Nurses Week

I would like to think that me being there in what most would describe as the the worst, scariest time of their life, made things just a little better for you, and your family.

You see… even though you’re critically ill enough to be an ICU patient, you are stable at this time, and I will do everything I can to keep you that way.

I usually tell my patients and family, when you see a worried look on my face, then there’s cause for concern ( not telling them that over the years I’ve gotten so good at masking my emotions, that when that look occurs, the poop is about to hit the fan)

No matter the struggles we experience on the unit, how understaffed we are, when we are close to tears because your loved one needs to be cleaned or medicated, and we just don’t have the man power, we suck it up get the job down and you don’t know…..

We feel genuine happiness when we see you in the future, and you’ve not just survived, you’ve flourished, and now have a new leash on life(working in the ICU, or ER you don’t even know what we’ve been through together….)

Along the way, we’ve become family, friends, teachers,students, preceptors, Aprns and more

We’ve gone to Med Surg, ER, ICUs, Clinics, L&D ,Rehab, and Nursing Homes

I want to say a big Thank you, to all of you wonderful nurses out there. You truly deserve it. Keep doing what you do.


Congratulations !!!!!!

I am overjoyed as this week my baby girl nadia graduated from talent Unlimited High school.

She is an amazing intelligent young lady …… who is talented beyond my wildest dreams , has the voice of an angel and has made me so proud…

Just a poem 

I remember the day’s when I had a whole lung for you When every breath I took I took for you

With every breath that Shook I shook for you 
Seeping from my lungs next to my heart 

Turning my red blood straight to black

Seeping from my heart out into my body

Consuming any chance I had to be happy 

Oh my! who new, we would never be happy 

Deep in thought, thinking of things of the past 

How can I live like this and not retaliate

How much pain can you inflict which I can’t alleviate 

I will not lie still while you ensure my destruction 

Oh you know for sure there will be repercussions 

Will I do it 

Can I do it 

Will I bear it 

You know I fear it
Boom is the sound of my world shaking 

Clash is the sound of my heart breaking
Can I do it 

Will I do it 

I will rise to the occasion, and will soar above the sky

I shall blow like a tornado and disperse them far and wide 

A kids story!!!

There once were two sisters ,

one named Stephanie and the other was Nadia.

They loved each other like no other.

They were always together…. like two peas in a pod

They laughed, danced, and played together

Whether sunshine or stormy weather

The love they shared was indeed a true treasure

 To tell the the truth, they always thought

they would be Together forever

 As time went by they grew up fast

Until the day came, where they found they would now be apart

The time had come for Nadia

To go away to college and spread her wings

The morning came and Nadia left

,Stephanie went to her room and wept and wept

She cried herself to sleep that night

Because you see her very best friend had left her behind

Stephanie was so depressed and lonely

She stopped doing the things she used to do

She no longer laughed, or played or danced

A matter of fact all she did was cry

1 day became 2 days became 3days became 4

And one week because 2 weeks became 3 weeks became 4

Cry cry cry, all she did was cry

After what seemed like months of crying

One evening upon returning home from school

Stephanie was sitting in the sofa, just watching some TV

She had had a busy day st school , and had just finished her home work. She was in one of her peculiar moods, where she now missed Nadia so very very much.

 the tears were at risk of making an appearance again but

Just then she noticed, that there was something strange by the window

She moved closer to get a better look

But she couldn’t see clearly

what was by the window she wondered

She moved just a little closer and just then she saw something swing back and forth

Swish,swash, and a swish and a swash

So quickly that she still couldn’t tell what it was

Swish swash and a swish and a swash

 To her surprise when she got close enough to see

What she saw was a tail growing from the window

Swinging back and forth with a swish and a swash, wiggling and swirling and sometimes just curling

Stephanie took a moment to observe the scene, and just started laughing laughing and laughing

The tail was so joyful, and happy you see

That Stephanie couldn’t help but join in and be merry

She got close enough to see what would happen

But the tail just kept swinging and swishing and swashing

She patted and smoothed and pampered her new tail

Which was just delighted at her touch

It wiggled and twirled with each touch it received

In this moment it just seemed to make Stephanie complete

Each day Stephanie looked forward to coming home from school

She just couldn’t wait to come home and play with her new friend the tail

Days became weeks became months after months

And Stephanie couldn’t remember a time she was happier

The pain she felt after Nadia went away, is now just a dull ache thanks to her new tail
