Miss being a summer camp nurse. Never a dull moment. Pay is peanuts compaired to hospitals but the experiences and memories are priceless:
...Croup tent made out of shower curtin over top of bathroom rafter over tub.
...Delayed anaphlyatic reaction 12 hours post bee sting.
...11PM soft knock on door from staff--peaking out revealed 19yo male with posterior thigh filleted open 12 inches from sliding on blacktop playing basketball.
... My three year old son falling on gravel driveway last day of camp and needing three stitches on forehead--on his third birthday too.
...My older son at age 7 falling into septic tank at 9 PM while returning to infirmary with counselor, needed 5 stiches on lip by pediatrician who was rolling on floor over image of him covered in "chocolate" and aquiring camp name: Chocolate Jimmee.
...youngest son at 5 yo riding atop a horse by himself in Equestrian show and getting ribbon.
...birthday parties every year at camp from age 2 to 8 including Pinata's, a tradition still carried on at age 15.
...meeting Philadelphia sport teams superstars; oldest @ 5yo on meeting Karl Malone and expecting Charles Barkley asks "Will you sign my ball Charles Barkley please".
...eating bushells of CRABS.
...being lulled to sleep nightly by the sound of a bouncing basketball.
...having a 9 hole minature golf course and gazeebo right outside your front door, pool 50 feet away, along with enclosed hockey court.
...NO DISHES OR COOKING FOR 9 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!
Who is to say which are good or bad memories..........................
