    sharing the love in the critical unit

    That makes your day just the tinyest things on this earth just a few small words made a difference to that little old soul and i know we are not always allowed to share our faith in God due to so many religions but its funny , almost like God allows me to be with the ones that need him in that time i kinda feel like a guardian angel (minus the wings) add the scrubs lol God bless you leah :heartbeat

    any nurses with mild dyslexia ?

    My 90 year old grandma , before she bacame terminal with cancer of the spine told me Leah you are never a quitter as long as you keep trying you might fall , get back up dust yourself and try try again , the ones that are the failures never tried in the first place . the first time i went to a math class it was basic math 100 i was so full of anxiety i puked from it LOL now im doing better it takes time im a whip at patho and bio and pharm but math is my enemy as for the dyslexia i found out when i am stressed and tired i tend to make more mistakes lol but nursing and hospital work is stressing enough i usually take on 13 patients a night from renal failures , to heart issues , to copd and chf issues its very taxing but i keep smiling at my patients Say god bless you when i can and always always pray and ask God to go before me before i hit that floor its a labor of love this job , and if your paitients dont see the love in you and the compassion you might as well go home I cant wait to be a nurse ! i know i have learned so much from other nurses and gained their respect they used to freak out thinking "oh god she has dyslexia and now they see me in a different light and know i want to do my best dyslexia is sometimes rather humilitating and you feel helpless at times like everyone sees your faults but im finding i am not alone i have met other nurses that have the same issues with it so i know if they can do it so can i :redpinkhe God bless leah

    any nurses with mild dyslexia ?

    i have had dyslexia for over 20 years it is a struggle for me with the math and when i fill out the charts i have to carry a ruler with me so i dont write in the wrong area things tend to look backwards at times i wondered if there are any nurses that struggle with dyslexia or other disabalities that make it tougher for you testing time is the worst for me but so far a carry a b in my college courses leah :heartbeat
  6. i like the hospital better i float as a cna right now till i get my lpn degree i love the flexability and the angency pays more and i can choose when i want to work or not i dont like the nursing homes i love old people they are sweet but they always shove 20 or more patients on you in one wing they dont make time for the residents when they feed them and i have seen alot of neglect in nursing homes it very hard on your back as well its also more stressfull i think good luck with the nursing ! leah :heartbeat

    she will be placed in hospice this week thank God so hopfully they can talk to the hard head :/ i have seen dying people and i told my mom and dad i will not allow this to happen to you if it gets like this you get a whole different perspective on it when you work around it 24/7 i see people (et) tubed and knwoing that some are too weak and will be vent dependant the reat of their life and that is sad but it is a hard decision like you say it has alot of factors to take into :heartbeat:redbeathe

    when to remove the tube feed /or not

    in my opinion hes hurting her more than they are the hard part for me is Grandmother is a good christian loving and kind giving and dad is bitter and unforgiving belive you me i have talked till im blue in the face to him about it its just so sad i wanted her to be like the ones that just fall asleep and pass on peacfully on a couch or somthing and it aint gonna happen that way so i figure better have her sedated and no pain than comimg in and out of pain and confusion thanks God bless you leah :redpinkhe

    when to remove the tube feed /or not

    thanks she can verbalize that she wants to go home (heaven ) but she is now suffering from dementia and the mass is goign to the brain now and she forgets things also why do dying people have nightmares ? or is it due to the lack of oxygen in the brain ? she tells me all these bad dreams i was wondering if the atavan was doing that ? or is it the pain meds i want to tell the doc that she shoudl prolly be on a med for her confusion maybe haldol ? thanks leah
