    What do you think and we will help guide you.

    We help you with homework, but do not do the homework without any effort from the student.

    You go first OP!

    Also, a fail to plan on your part does not equate an 'urgent' on our part.

    So you know next time- this is an anonymous internet forum and the people who respond to your questions may be nurses. Or not. May be serial killers, evil trolls or YOUR INSTRUCTORS.

    You just never know.

    I mean, I always start with ABC's. My choice would have been C, but I'm still but a student.

    Oops, I just saw fluid overload. That'll teach me to read things more carefully. A would be my choice
