    If you have been in geriatrics, then you should be fine. Its what we do everyday, working in this population, and being prepared for every contingency that applies to geriatrics. there were a few questions on culture change and enviornmental factors affecting the overall wellbeing of a person, but it looks like you have a pretty comprehensive study program already! Good luck!

    Working the nih shift always puts one in the range of seeing ghosts...or feeling them.

    I just finished reading a book by Chris Moore titled A Dirty Job. Well, the jist of the story you will have to read, but there is a charachter called Minty, and he is a 6 foot tall black man, who is a death merchant, helping souls of those who die.

    Well, I am at work 2 days after finishing the book, and one of my patients says... who is that tall black man at the desk? I look. Nobody. I say, where is he? and ask all the appropriate questions about what else he sees behind the desk. That is all normal. When he is insistant, I say, his name is Minty! He is a good guy, you can talk to him. But if he actually comes in the room, you gotta let me know.
    I tell the rest of the staff, and they are cracking up(and now want to read the book)

    Well, I have off for a few days, cant wait to get back and see... if Minty helped this man.

    Sure enough, I could get heart tones. I looked over at Amelie and said, "Are you going to have a little sister or brother?" And that kid, all 1 1/2 years of age, said, "Baby - Me!" I looked at D and she said, "She's saying, the baby is a girl like her."

    We did an US this time for unsure dates; sure enough, that baby is a girl.

    I have never experienced anything like that. It wasn't scary or creepy, and I don't get an odd feel from Amelie; but there is no doubt something special about that little girl.
    Well, i have really enjoyed these stories. I work in LTC, and started on teh unit I returned to just a few months ago. A few of my 'old' residents who passed are still here.. Peek-a-boo Gus still pops out of his room and looks around the door, waving us down. Gus had passed in 99. Charlie used to clang that darn oxygen key....you could hear it down the hall, and still do. Residents who are ill, and in stages of passing, there is a considerate 'person' in their room, packing their belongings...and when you look in the closet,the items are on the floor, off the hangar. Many times it is easy to see the relatives who come for the dying person. Vic had 6 male relatives come for him, and he said thats cuz he let himself go a bit(he was really big) and they needed all the wings they could muster to lift him up. They only visited on my shift(days at that time) and he passed on my shift.

    Personally...Nana.. My gramma..she was a nurse too. She visits to tell me when things will happen, and I have just come to accept that she is my guardian angel. She told me when I was pregnant, and what I would have. She let me know that my other gram was passing, and keeps me intuned with my kids. I guess she feels she owes it to me, since she died the day before my wedding.
    I couldnt imagine a world without the ability to speak to her still, and therein seats my deep belief that we need to help them pass, and lead them to THEIR angels. Keep that window open, just enuff to let the spirit out, they need to be drawn to the light, and opening the window will aid in that.

    What I wanted to comment on was this.. My son would often play with his "sister' before I was even pregnant. He even gave his description. Now we are waiting to see if Little Ana grows up to look like the image he described. Children know...and there is something to be said for "The 7th son of the 7th son"(or daughter).
    Blessed in the Light with the knowledge of Heaven.
