10 facts about me.

1. I am addicted to House Hunters on HGTV.... actually I am just addicted to HGTV altogether.
2. I am super duper jealous of my sister Shelley for being so creative with everything.
3. I love cooking... but I'm not very good at it.
4. My biggest goal in life is to be a mom.... hopefully when the time comes I will be as good of one as my mom is.
5. I love cats and if we were allowed to have pets in our townhouse I would probably have like 4 or 5 of them.
6. When I was trying to decided what type of nurse I wanted to be, I would remind myself that I hated old people.... well.... now I love them!!
7. I have the best husband in the world... seriously.
8. I have absolutely NO sense of style. I am not even kidding. Shelley has to take me shopping to help me find clothes... it's really sad.
9. I hate it when people cough stuff up. It makes me gag. I can take throw up, poop, pee, blood, just not coughed up stuff... that is one HUGE reason I am not a respiratory therapist.
10. I love taking a long hot shower the minute I get home from work... there is just nothing like seeing (well I see it in my head) all the MRSA, C-Diff, and other various germs washing down the drain. It makes me happy.

Vampires and strokes

That is what Michael and I have become!!! (Too bad I'm not gorgous like the vampires in twilight.) So I've been on night shift for almost a year and I have become soooo sensitive to sunlight!! Ok I know those of you who know me best are thinking that I have always been super sensitive to sunlight, which is true, but now I am REALLY sensitive. Michael and I are very rarely outside because we sleep all day. Well on Saturday we went fishing with my Grandpa, Dad, and little bro at St. Marks. It was super fun (even though we didn't catch anything), but we were out there from 12:30-4:45, there was not a cloud in the sky, and we didn't have any trees to hide under. I was doing ok until we got in the car to head home. I all the sudden got hit with the biggest headache ever and was so sick to my stomach! By the time we got home I was full blown sick and I was super burnt and was already looking like a lobster! I was sick all night long and finally fell asleep about 8:30 in the morning. I was planning on just sleeping like an hour, going to church, then coming home and sleeping for the rest of the day, but Michael decided I needed to sleep and didn't wake me up. I am really glad he made that decision because when I did wake up I felt like I had been run over by a semi! But I felt alot better! Stupid sun poisoning!

So an hour or so after I woke up we got a call that Michael's Grandma was acting funny. We rushed over and I got her to go to the hospital (It took some major convincing.... she can be quite stubborn). Long story short, she got admitted and they think she had a small stroke. She is really confused and has trouble finding the right word, but she doesn't have any deficits in her gait or coordination (Thank goodness). We didn't get the call until this had been going on for a few hours.... I think I need to do some education with Michael's parents (like CALL 911 if someone is acting very strange and can't talk). So please pray that she will recover quickly!

Just for info purposes here are warning signs for stroke:
*Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
*Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
*Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
*Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
*Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

Be on the lookout for these warning signs! If you suspect someone has had a stroke call 911 RIGHT AWAY. It's better safe then sorry. In Tallahassee, both CRMC and TMH are great with strokes, but in other cities, find out the nearest hospital that specializes in stroke. You won't be sorry. Strokes can be devestating.... Believe me... I know. I work with stroke patients everyday.

Getting there....

Sooo... since Michael and I got married I think that all of our stuff has multiplie times a million!!! It is taking me way to long to unpack and get things where they need to be. On an up note, we finally got our gas hooked up! We had been living in the townhouse, but still showering at the apartment. Not fun! But now we have hot water and it is awesome!! But we had a flood the other night... well actually 4 floods. Blame it on the townhouse which has many broken things in it. This time it was the showerhead. Broken showerhead + water = BIG FLOOD and Michael and I being late to work. But it also equals lots of laughs and good memories. I love making memories with Michael... it's fun. Being married is awesome!
