NCLEX waiting game blues

  1. okay, i don't know whether i should slit my wrists now or wait until i'ts official!! i took the nclex yesterday(less than 12 hours after recieving my att via email), it shut off at 75 and i thought i would die. i wanted to shake it and yell "please come on mr computer, i promise to do better!" the questions were a mixture of easy and hard. toward the end their difficulty became a little vauge, but i am still not really understanding what the test rates as hard or easy. can somenoe help with that?
    i had 3 hepatitis in a row(toward the end), ie,
    pt. teaching with hepa,
    1 condoms with her hubby
    2. have another family member cook
    3. take tylenol for pain
    4. decrease consumption of fat soluable vitamins
    then it went staight into which pt. is at risk for developing hepd,
    1. living with a person with hep a
    2. tylenol use
    3. having hep b
    4. visiting a unsanitary country
    then it went into "which is the correct room assingnment for the following pt."
    1 hep c private room with contact isolation
    2 bact. endocarditis private room with neg pressure
    3 pt w/pud and a pt w/ c diff-semiprivate room
    4 i think it was a pt. with hep a and a pt with ulerative collitis in semiprivate

    why would it flip flop like that i thought i answered the first one correct(2)
    i know i missed the hep d one, and i have no idea on the last(i put 1). if anyone could help or just lend some encouraging words it would be great.oh, and my last question was priority of care in a peds icu (dont know if i got it right though)
    oh, and would a pt with a av graft for dialysis be a contraindication for mri?
    thanks alot-tara
    pray that god grants me peace!!!!!!!!!

    my answers would be:

    have another family cook for pt. teaching hep a.
    visiting unsanitary country for hep d.
    room assignment i think would be 3? number 4 seems wrong, to put 2 pt. w/vomiting and diarhea issues together? hep. a. is contagious. #1 is wrong i think b/c you do not use contact isolation with hep c, just universal precautions. what do other people think???
    1 hep c private room with contact isolation
    2 bact. endocarditis private room with neg pressure
    3 pt w/pud and a pt w/ c diff-semiprivate room
    4 i think it was a pt. with hep a and a pt with ulerative collitis in semiprivate

    thanks, i hope so.
    those hepatitis question threw me off. here are my rational:
    hep a needs someone else to cook!!( i agree)
    hep c in the private room because he would most likely be treated with interferon, which lowers your wbc count, the contact isolation would be because of the mode of excretion of the interferon. (maybe i am wrong)
    and i wouldn't put a pt. with cdiff in the same room as a pud because of the potential for contamination from the c diff to the pud pt who already has a comprimised gi tract.
    and the hep d is associated with hepb ( i didn't know that til i got home), i also put the one about the other country.(i don't know)
    i know that the wait is killing me i have already taken 2 nerve pills and i am working on the 3rd! please send prayers for peace of mind my way and thanks, peaceful, for the encouragement!_tara
