FEELING PUNY (sick) TODAY

I started feeling a little puny at work Sunday night. I finished my shift and came home and stayed up until 6:30 a.m.! I work 10:00 am till 10:00 pm and we got out at 11:30 p.m.. We have to stay, of course until the last patient is seen even if they sign in at 9:59 with a headache they've had for 5 days!!!! Could not go to sleep. Then I slept all day and am just now getting around to checking Blog and E-mail.

I Love Elle's post on the books and I have my list out to post. I will post tomorrow (I work another 12 Tuesday) so it may be Wednesday. For today- just two very quick and LOL-Shallow posts!

1. The Best Teacher: A good scare teaches more than good advice! - esp. in Medicine. You do something or catch something that you almost did wrong and you couldn't pull a needle out of your butt with a tractor---well -REMEMBER that lesson!

2. Second Time: Don't underestimate the importance of experience. It'll help you recognize a mistake when you are about to make it again!

Bottom Line: Learn the first time around- there is no real substitute for experience: and as long as we are human and working we will make mistakes. Pray that you learn from them and then recognize that situation before you possibly make the same mistake twice.

Told you this was wimpy- but I hope to be back to more meaty posts by Thursday as well as the Cool post from Elle. Please check out "Would you like a little cheese with that WHINE!!!" Great read @ http://3blueberries.blogspot.com/ .

I'll learn how to put HTML links in one day! OMG-- I did it- I Did it- look- a hyperlink--- "I'm giving all I got Captain-I don't know how much more she can take!!!" (Scotty Impression)
He's been hitting the Dilithium Crystal METH!! Again- "Damnit Jim- I'm just a Doctor" "I just prescribe it, I can't regulate how much he snorts!" (Bones Impression).

Actually I was Spock on the Start Trek meme that went around. I'm not a real Vulcan but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night!

Love to all,


John
