    Fun2care, I think you will do great in that Chem class.

    Mike1957, did you do the CST program at El Centro?

    LKG, is this for your app?
    Hye SunnyJohn,
    No, I haven't done anything at El Centro yet. I am about to start getting all of my stuff together to apply for next fall. I'm also working on a couple of job opportunities in both the Methodist and Presby hospital systems that may prove to be quite useful.

    Thanks...I'm gonna try to kick bootay again .......or at least just pass the class....LOL

    CHANGE OF PLANS!!!!!

    Since I am taking the Chem class, and it starts Monday, I called my Dr's office. (Luckily it was a different person than I talked to b/4!) LOL

    I asked her to check with the nurse if it would be ok if I took the last HepB shot tomorrow, instead of Monday. They said yes, so I am doing my physical, PPD, HepB, and possibly 1 out of 2 HepA shots tomorrow! (maybe I should go ahead and get a MMR or a titer?!?!?!) I wonder if all of this can go together or will I end up with a slight case of MeaslruehepB-Amumptitis?

    Now I can take my application down there tomorrow! :hatparty: :hatparty: :hatparty:

    Gawd...let's see. I've had Hep A (no shots...I had Hep A in 1973), When I had MMR...there weren't shots... I had the diseases....let's see what 3rd world country I have been to for TB exposure? This is going to be so much fun....I'll be a pin cushion.

    Hehe. I got exposed to TB in the Emergency Room of Children's. The whole family in the room (where I was tech) had it. OH happy day!

    lol....well I have to admit I'd rather be a pin cushion than have the diseases....so sorry you had to deal with it! lol

    I know I don't have to have the varicella vaccine! I've had the chicken pox, been exposed to it when my oldest was a baby, and my 7 year old had a case of break-through chicken pox even though she did get immunized. I never did get chicken pox again, so I think I'm ok! (Last exposure was just last school year, so I think I'm good to go.) lol

    hmmmm I forgot about the meningitis vaccine, but it's only good for about 6 months....I'd be a pin cushion every six months....then again, it may be worth getting it a month or so before starting the program!!!!!

    My favorite exposure was when I was an engineer for a company with a plant about 100 miles south of Nuevo Laredo in Mexico. They had an outbreak of dengue fever carried by the local mosquito population. I managed to avoid it thankfully.

    I got some of my vaccinations re-done at the El Centro Health Clinic for only $10 (which the scholarship covered). When they were limiting supplies of a lot of stuff, El Centro got supplies for its healthcare students. They also give you a neat Texas Department of Health Card to keep track of everything. The card is great when I have to show proof of immunizations. I never have to call up the doctor's office!

    Why not get the meningitis shot at El Centro if you are going to wait until just a month before the program starts? Your scholarship might cover it.

    I hope your lunch won't leak out FUN2CARE with all the shots today! hehehe

    Wow, Mike....better you than me!! LOL

    SunnyJohn...(It's tomorrow @ 10:30) lol I guess I better eat a solid breakfast, and not a liquid shake of somesort! :chuckle :chuckle :chuckle

    I have to go get my mommie to sign my chicken pox letter I typed up. lol Geeze, I'm 31 years old, don't you think I'm old enough to say, yes I did have the chicken pox? lol

    I remember it all too well. I got it from a girl named Candi that was in my class. Wednesday night I stood at the door crying because I couldn't go to church with them. LOL

    Isn't it funny the thing we remember from childhood?


    I got chicken pox a couple of days before my eight birthday. I remember it all because my godmother gave me a storybook of Bible stories as a birthday gift. It was really big and had the coolest pictures. There was a place in the front where you could put you name.

    I still have that book.

    LOL .... It is funny. Somethings just stand out. I wish I had a photographic memory. I would love to remember more "little" things, not just things that tramatized my life such as chicken pox or birthdays!

    Yes, a photographic memory would be nice,

    I guess God planned it that way so we would forget the remember the really bad times that happen in life.

    It would sure help in nursing school though!

    Mike, I'm hoping for Northlake like Funnie, but I'm sure we will all get a chance to meet.
