DAMN I AM TIRED AND MY BACK HURTS!

HA HA!! GOTCHA! OHHHHH I WISH I COULD HAVE SEEN YOUR FACE. "THIS" IS VICTORIA'S' SECRET!!!!!!!! AHHHH, I CRACK MYSELF UP.

4:15 am. Early, or late depending. We saw 136 patients at Urgent Scare today. 5 Transfers out to main Hospitals, one Pulmonary emboli, 1 MI, and 3 Chest pain admits. And those were just a few of the sick ones. My butt is whipped. Mentally and physically. I made some good decisions, I made some people who were feeling terrible laugh out loud. They felt better, if only for a minute. Healing is awesome.

My upper back is burning so badly I can't believe I'm still at this keyboard typing. I'm just so wound up. This means I'll have wasted most of tomorrow which is my day off. I'll get to sleep around 5:30 or 6:00, just as the sun comes up ,and sleep until 1 or 2 o'clock. I'll wake up with intense pain in my right shoulder from an old football injury, pain in my right knee form standing 4 hours in one spot taking BP's, Temps, and listening to stories of wrecks, spills, falls, total Bullshit, and more. Damn, Pink Floyd and Bob Seegar sound good! I have a mix play list blasting and the music is really helping. What great medicine.

Please understand I'm not complaining about all of this. This is life and life is good. These are just the aches and pains of a life well lived, and one well worth living. I'm making progress in school. I make a difference in people's lives. Mostly for the positive. I have a wife who loves me, and I love her back. I Love her front too! God is good.

Wonder where we will all end up? I hope there is a big Bloggers' meeting in one corner of heaven, so we can all meet in Spirit, with perfect non-hurting Glorified bodies. Unfettered by time and space, free to travel anywhere at the blink of an eye. Sorry- old POT flashback! Ok, I'm back now. Back is still hurting, it quit for a minute while I was writing, but now it is pushing it's way back to front and center again. So, I guess I'll say goodnight, get my bony Butt up, and go take an 800 mgm Motrin, eat some Oreo's and Milk; did I ever mention I had Bypass surgery-LOL and go to bed, or not!

It will feel so good when it stops hurting. Then I'll wake up and stretch, creak, pop, snap, ( sound like a bowl of cereal don't I?), and after about 30 minutes I'll feel FANTASTIC! I really will. For all the little aches and pains, after a life of Football, Sports, jumping off roofs, etc, my body is doing remarkably well at 54. I know it doesn't sound like it, but it really is. I'm working 3, 14-16 hr shifts and putting in 2 hours every night in my online classes, so I think that's OK for an old fart!

I have a lot to be thankful for- and if you are reading this- You are part of it.

So, I'd just like to say - THANKS! Thanks for caring enough to stop by this little corner of the universe when you could be anywhere else you choose! Really, Thanks!

Love to all,

John
