To find the sun during the day & the rest at night

Sorting out mother's day

As everyone in the United States knows, Sunday is Mother's Day. I am usually on top of the holidays and celebrations, and my normal habit is to send flowers to my mother. Sometimes, I make a card for her. This year, I have done neither. It is a huge step for me to not do the "norm" because of guilt... Sign in to see full entry.

Days off, migraines and blessings

Friday night was a full moon, apparently payday and - well, Friday night. The bars were rocking, and some of said rockers ended up in our ER after discovering that alcohol and driving don't mix. (I thought everyone knew this, but there must be pockets of resistance to the "don't drink and drive"... Sign in to see full entry.

Finding happy medium and the choices of life

My older sister and her husband came and had lunch with me yesterday. I hadn't seen Chris or Mitch for about 8 years, and Chris had taken on the job of parenting me after our father had passed away. I have always taken this as her way of showing she loves me, except for the one time she tried to... Sign in to see full entry.

Full moon (again) and chasing horses

Today is Tuesday (duh, right?) Since my last entry on Friday, it has been an eventful 4 days. As I was off work this weekend, I had plans to organize the bunkhouse, do laundry, go to church, and sleep. However, as we all know, you can make plans, but that does not guarantee you will see your... Sign in to see full entry.

As I told you earlier in the week, I am the lone phlebotomist on the 1-9 shift yesterday (4/22) and today. Some of you may be wondering how it's going. Yesterday was horrible/good. I got completely overwhelmed, had doubts about whether I needed to be doing this job, briefly considered jumping off... Sign in to see full entry.

Today, I had a patient who made me - well, angry. Not mad angry, but frustrated angry. (Before I go on, I need to preface this by saying that I never, ever take out my frustrations on a patient. It's just wrong. You don't do it, not if you want to keep a job or give a real darn about your patients.)... Sign in to see full entry.

And now we see if I can do my job

The usual course of scheduling in our department is there are two of us most of the shift. However, things come up, and someone cannot be at work. Bob, my ever-present partner will be off the next 3 days, due to losing his grandmother. On Thursday and Friday, I will be covering 1-9 p.m. on my own. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes, God has to remind you

As you know, I've moved to a new town, have a new job, (which I still love and I am stilled blessed beyond any of my wildest expectations), and I am overflowing with enthusiasm. However, because of my exuberant nature, I can lose sight of things and get caught up in my own little universe and said... Sign in to see full entry.

I work in Area 51.5

As a Phlebotomist, I have to depend on several things to obtain a sucessful venous blood sample: First, I pray for wisdom and guidance (hey, wouldn't you want the person sticking a needle in your arm to pray for guidance from the Lord?! ). Second, I use the senses of touch and sight to find a patent... Sign in to see full entry.

You have to be able to laugh - and then, there's my ex...

Working in healthcare, I've discovered that you have to have a sense of humor in your job. We, the mignions who toil in the trenches, saving lives, seeing man's inhumanity to man - oh, wait - that the speech I give to people who don't appreciate all healthcare workers do, but feel they are socially...
