Head Lice - It's True - page 5

Tuesday morning I was brought a bug in a zip-lock bag. The bug had been just removed from a head. It was a, robust, adult head louse - judging by it's size. It appeared to be very agitated as it was... Read More

    You can always just leave a little well groomed "landing strip." That way you don't look 12. (Ick.)

    No Shave November is a 2 way street. And it is promptly followed by "Forget it December" and "No Razor New Year"

    It took a moment for the tail end of the slinky to arrive but once my brain clicked the front office came running to see what the commotion was. In the words of Larry the Cable Guy, "I don't care who you are. That there is funny." Thank You Snowy!

    This conversation is killing me!! Thanks for the chuckle. We doing some serious good work today!!

    Maybe I'm just old. "We" never did this sort of thing. Although it was FORCED upon me when I was in labor with my first child waaay back in 1983. I got the "big shave" and an enema. And a 3-day stay for a normal vaginal delivery with no complications.

    22 months later, I had another son, no "big shave" and no enema. And I was out in 18 hours.

    Must have had my kids on the cusp of a change in L&D. As a L&D nurse later in life, I just shake my head at my first delivery.

    (And the grow-back-in period was torture. Pure torture.).

    "well groomed" . . . what a statement to make for that particular area! I guess we have special combs and brushes and hair conditioners and . . . )

    This just keeps getting better....Hysterical! I so want to be able to share it with somebody. Unfortunately, I am the only nurse in the building...and lets face it. This is funny, but you kinda got to be a school nurse to GET it. My secretary here is the absolute best...it would be fun to have her read it, we would most likely laugh ourselves into oblivion and we would have some explaining to do to need-to-know teachers that would over hear us.
    Hallelujah....only 1 hour and 5 minutes to go.

    On a serious note. I need you (my) school nurse friends to think extra happy thoughts for me. My baby is a Senior, I went down to listen to them practice for the CHRISTMAS program...and..well...I cried. The teacher let me know that me and one other mom is who they have their money on to cry during the program. I guess I must have a reputation.
    I feel like such a sappy wimp. I don't want to cry in front of our sweet little music teacher. She lost her husband very recently in a sky diving accident. Soooo...if you could really think extra happy thoughts for her ... SHE NEEDS IT WAAAAY WORSE than this seasoned mom who is watching her baby do a lot of "lasts" in his Senior year.

    Thanks for all the fun today...I think we alllll needed it.
