Update !!!

  1. Hi,
    Just wanted to share an update on one of my earlier posts about how excited I was because I am going to get to volunteer this summer at a local hospital. Now, I am even more excited because I just sucessfully completed my first day of it !!!! Even though I didn't get to do much exciting, it was still soooooo much fun to have a reason for hanging around the hospital !!! I got to work in Rehab (hydrotherapy and wound treatment) and Pediatics. But I must say you nurses who work 12 hour shifts are GODS ~ my feet are killing me after only 8. But I better get used to it because I'm sure eventually I will be a nurse who works 12s. ( hopefully ) Anyway, just had to share my update !!!

    Take care of those feet! Warm soaks and GOOD SHOES with arch support. Glad you enjoyed your day. Every day will be different and you will absorb more than you thought possible.

    I remember being a candy-striper at 14 and going home with sore feet! I think that was after 6 hours. However, I learned A LOT!

    Oh wait a minute, I was 14 just a year ago, yeah that's it :wink2:
