NOOO! You aren't supposed to crush them anymore. The current theory is that it's trauma to the joint that causes ganglion cysts and whacking your wrist with a big ol book just causes more trauma. You're supposed to aspirate the contents with a needle. Well, your health care provider is supposed to in a proper environment.

Oh? Dang CEU's didn't teach me a thing.

So............no vote?

Oh, I forgot to vote. I vote to leave it in until vacation is over. Take it out now, and have to do WORK during vacation (and by work I mean getting up and walking to the bathroom)?? No WAY.

I'm afraid to go to the gym. What if my running on the treadmill makes me nauseous and all my AM rum/cokes end up on the floor?

:clown:Actually, that'd be great. Let someone else know how I feel for 40/hrs a week. Wonderful. Full bore workout for me tonight.:D

Netflix is the best. My idea of a "Friday night " is netflix, glass of wine, and a candle.

There is a green candle I get every time..................bamboo something or other sent. It smells great, not perfume-ish.

<_>

>_>

Am I really discussing candle sents here? Eh, this is too..........girly. Need to balance the post back out.

Oh, and if you can get it so Netflix is streamed to your TV (via Playstation, Xbox or some of the other devices), its even better.

If you are in the mood for Stand Up Comedy, you can pick a few people to watch and have an all night comedy bash.

Wonder if posting on AN while drinking is a good idea?

Ah well, I have staff who track me like wolves seek the lone lamb. If I'm going to be in trouble, they'll be here shortly.

Anyone else ever post here while on vaca./drinking?

<_>

>_>

N/M. I don't want to know the truth.

did so just last week.

Good fun. It enhances your creative juices, thereby creating wicked good comebacks.

wha--? Erik really did cath himself? My nursebrain just scootched right on past that in thinking "who the hell would do that?" But anyway, a bit more catheter weirdness I feel compelled to share.

It involves a true-life story about an ER visit for recurrent cystitis in a young, healthy man - reverse catheterization with an alcoholic beverage and the moniker of "wine steward" I'll let you take it from there . . .

It comes from the blog of an ER doc - we aren't allowed to post links to non-allnurses blogs, but I would be much obliged and relieved to hear this was a big pile of BS like the black-widow nest in bee-hive hair story.

we're not? Not that I even care or would wish to read a blog, but who cares...??

Ewwww, but they fall off so easy, and then I'm sitting there half lit up thinking "Its all good, got the voiding thang under control" and then..................my sage colored couch is not sage color anymore.
