Had the first two days in the Neuro ICU. It's going to be a looong haul this month. And since Saturday was already my first day (of 4) off for the month I won't be getting much relief any time soon. It's an emotional month too - strokes are so sudden and such a surprise to patients and families that it's hard to deal with. Then there's my favorite trauma patients that I can't seem to get rid of..... It has been kind of interesting though learning a few things to take back to my ED work.
Today we had a Packer Party for people aged 21-35 at our Church. It was a small get together but pretty fun. Unfortunately we ate a bunch of junk food and I'm not feeling too well. I'll be eating a lot like a 5 year old this week since Lunchables were on sale for $1. Combined with baby carrots and a 100 calorie snack pack and I'm just hoping no big bully steals my lunch!
This afternoon I had time to edit some photos - something I've been learning how to do. I am not quite sure what kind of looks I'm going for - the aged, grungy, deep colors.....not sure yet. I just realized that one of them didn't upload very crisply - ignore that.
In other news I had a model at the party for a sneak peak of my Elephant Hat in action. I've shown the hat before, but was pretty impressed with how cute it was actually on! Addison looks great! Can't wait to add the tuft of hair for Lucas.
Bry would like to provide the following update: Work is going well. He is back to driving. He is enjoying catching up on video games when Abi is on call. He has been looking forward to this week's episode of Family Guy ALL WEEK long and is loving the Rush Limbaugh cameo. His other love is the start of the Fall TV season. Big Bang Theory has been laugh-out-loud funny. He's even managed to work "I'll have to make a virtual reality device" into conversation at least once per day.
Football has also been nice again, although the Packers are somewhat distracting from the Twins post-season. Go Twinkies!
