Thank you! I think we are on autopilot some days. But I have to remind myself that there are others who have it worse. Praying for an end to this sooner rather than later.

I love geriatrics! And I love long-ish term care. I really enjoy getting to know my patients and their little quirks. The downside is that sometimes we lose them. But normally, not like this! It truly sux! And if itís this hard for me, I canít imagine what it must be like for our new nurses. School doesnít prepare you for this. Nothing does. Taking a breather tonight to decompress, then heading back in for the weekend. Weíre just so short staffed... But if I have time to whine I have time to do something constructive! So I think I will sew. Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts! I appreciate you.

Enjoy your well-needed break. I have been consistently grateful that, due to the nature of her specialized unit, DW has been mostly spared the worst of this past year. Her best friend has spent the last year doing Covid nursing in MI and still has tremendous struggles with what she endured last spring. So, we know the stories that you are enduring. I pray for her, you, and all of the frontline nurses daily! You are more appreciated than you will likely ever know.

I dare say, Mindy, that you will likely never buy another drink when visiting WDW. Surely one of us will always be there at the same time as you...and the drinks are on us!

Cheers.

Well said! And I now have the ability to find my way there on short notice...


Prayers and best wishes for you and those you care most about, Mindy. You truly have my utmost admiration.
