I have eaten something and am feeling MUCH better. I don't want you to think that I hate my job. It's just that sometimes it is a little TOO interesting.

For example, today one patient looked at me like I crawled out from under a rock because I asked him what his family farmed. Well apparently I should have known since they own a local and very prominent winery. I had been calling him Mr. So and so since I got there. Well excuse me! All I know about wine is that Kendall Jackson is an upsell when you're waiting tables.

A second patient answered the door dragging their foot in a bucket because the wound on said foot was draining so much. And that is secondary to the fact that this patient is off their methadone, Hep C pos, and has MRSA! But what is really important is that now I have to shower before I hold Little Miss and wash my tennis shoes because I know I've been splattered by one of the nastiest wounds I've seen in a long time.

But not before I walk in the door and am informed that we are out of diapers and they need to be washed. Oh, and Ani barfed today. I think any person, even people who love their job would have said Ayayay! And don't forget that I hadn't had dinner yet either.

your job sounds so gross sometimes! I'm glad you don't carry a camera phone!

Oh, but I do! It's just that HIPPA prevents me from sharing them with you. :)

Yuck!! I would be saying something than Ayayay!! There would be a few expletives in there for sure!!

I like the fact that I am done working as a nurse for now...I don't look forward to those days again! Tyson used to tell me, 'you smell like placenta. Go shower.' So I would! Probably a good idea, uh!!!! But yuck, MRSA, yeah I am glad you washed your shoes!
