I have been in school now for two months and I am so excited becasue I am starting to know
what I'm learning
!!! I was watching House the other night and I knew
the the pt was in the left simms position and understood when they said GI
!!! I have been picking out things I know whenever I see them...infact I go out of my way to find things that I've been taught. It's almost like I'm obsessed with it. Tonight I had to take my daughter to the ER and I was reading some signs on the wall. I was so proud of myself when I was able to read some of the things and understand what was meant. Tachycardia, dyspnea, edema, diaphoresis, hematuria etc. I was almost jumping up and down...my daughter was just looking at me and laughing!!! I remember when I started school thinking how confusing it all seemed and yet here I am....I know I have A LOT
left to learn but I am on my way!!!!
Does anybody else feel this way? What's it like for you when you start seeing these words outside of school and understanding their meaning?
