My night?... oh You mean the hours of 11pm-7am...

Day 4: A picture(s) of your night:
My night was actually really good last night... had some interesting moments and I saw something swollen on a patient that I totally didn't know could swell! Also I learned about a new disease, grieved with a patient who had just lost someone close to them, acted silly with my co-workers, had a good chat with a doctor, nurse praticioner, and a physician assistant, gave shots in butts, and did my fair share of poking, prodding, measuring and so forth. All in all just another night shift. I love my patients though!! Especially the really really confused one! It makes the night fun!

Love these ones!!

Day 3: A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

Oh Grey's Anatomy... how I love thee!! This is by far my fave show!! And.... I have made it into Michael's fave show too!! We can't wait until Friday mornings so we can watch it! (Yes, I know it comes on Thursday night at 9pm, but we are getting ready for work then and wouldn't be able to concentrate). I have all the seasons on DVD and I think I have watched every episode twice!! The earlier seasons are better in my opinion, but the later ones are pretty good! It can get annoying at times when they do things really wrong (like having the oxygen tubing not hooked up to anything) but I just laugh it off!! It is also fun being able to relate to different situations.
On a different note, work is kicking my butt!! I need some MAJOR rest and relaxation because I think I am coming dangerously close to a huge burnout!!

My mommy

Day 2: A person I have been closest with the longest is my Mom. She is pretty much amazing. All my life she has been such an inspiring person. She juggled 4 kids, a house, my dad, and job, and homeschooling us 4 kids all at the same time.... AND she even stayed sane through all of that!! But seriously she is awesome!
For a random story about mom and I:
When I was probably like 5 or 6 I got a kit for christmas that lets you build cool things out of pennies. Mom and Dad got this for me and all the pennies I needed. It was only like $5 worth but to me it seemed like soooo much money!! I was so excited! But... then I got to thinking about how much my Mom sacrifices for me and my siblings and I started feeling really really guilty that she had given me all of this money when she gives up so much! By the way.... all of these thoughts were running through my head in the middle of the night. Well I got myself totally worked up about it and got to the point where I felt really panicked inside. I needed to give my mom the money back. RIGHT THEN! So I went into my parents room and tried to give her the bag of pennies back. Mom of course told me it was ok and was my gift and that she didn't need the money back. Well I was just too far gone by this point and could not calm down. Mom tried her hardest to calm me down but I just wouldn't stay calm unless she held my hand. So I slept next to her and she held my hand the whole night.
I don't know why but I can still remember this like it happened yesterday. There is a ton more stories... but I have been up all night keeping people alive and I am tired.
I Love you Mom!!
