Can I vent?

  1. Hey everyone, I know it's been awhile since I last posted. Anyway, school is going great. I just passed my critical care and OB/Peds classes with a B! And it feels like all my hard work is paying off. I've never been so scared and delighted at the same time. Also, I'll be starting my preceptorship in ten days! And even the extern position is getting better. Im getting better at drawing blood. Last night I got 3/5 sticks. I'm working on it. I appreciate everyone along the way who pushed me to never give up. Please keep me in you guys. My grandma is in end stage Alzheimer's disease and they're just providing comfort measures at this point. I really hate watching her go through this. She's been impaired for years, but she finally stop walking and speaking coherently. She's denies meals a lot now. Now, every time I go to the nursing home I see her lying in bed in her own world. I just don't want her to suffer anymore. 😩😩

    Sounds like you are on quite a roller coaster right now, doesn't it?

    You obviously love your grandmother and have a compassionate spirit! Just love her, Honey. Even if she doesn't respond much, the human spirit can feel love. May you find comfort during these days with her.

    And well done to you for all of your very challenging work and not giving up!
