hey Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends. I spent my day at work today. As many of you know I am a nurse. I work on a surgical cancer floor. There were not many surgeries before Christmas only those that needed to be done quickly. SO our normal 25 bed unit now has 5 patients. But no matter we do have patients and someone needs to work. There are actually 4 of us here another nurse and two nurses helpers because the patients we have usually have a lot going on. Today I am caring for a sweet lady who had surgery but now is having back spasms from not moving much and the beds I assume. Another lady has a wound infection, and one who had surgery today. I have been thinking off and on today. I have thoughts about my family then about the patients here and their families at home. All my patients except one have had company today for a few hours at a time but that is it a few hours at a time. I was wondering what I would do if I was here? I think I would be whiney. I am sometimes I get feeling sorry for myself for this reason or that. Actually I could not imagine being here on Christmas as a patient that is.
So I am going to pray to pray for these patients that they get better and go home to spend time with their families.
