    Great job!!! School Nurses are ESSENTIAL! I remember the first time I gave Epi, my heart was beating so fast you would have thought I had a dose. It is amazing to see how fast it works.

    Fast Acting Glucose in Classrooms

    Most of my diabetics have glucose tabs but have also kept skittles ( 15 candies per diabetic educator directive) for a fast acting. I like to keep them in emergency bags. How many Starburst do you use?

    Lord- Coronavirus drama

    Which is exactly what I'm seeing with the Flu around here. The shortness of breath, not so much, but have had issues. Had a lot of cases of pneumonia this year, probably more this year than I have in all of my previous years combined.
