I learned that my PRN job forgot about the days I was supposed to work this schedule - and I'm now anxiously waiting on a call back, because I want to know if I still need to come in tomorrow or not. If they forgot about me, and they filled up the next two days, I'm going to have trouble getting my hours in this time around. It would suck to lose that job over something stupid like this.

What type of phone do you have?

I usually back up my iPhone on my laptop or in iCloud; if you have backed it up at least once while the app was on the phone, it should still be retrievable.

Some additional tips can be found on Google, YouTube, and Pintrest.

I'm on the mobile allnurses now on my iPhone.

Anyone can get shingles.

I have had chicken pox and been vaccinated twice. Shingles (or adult chicken pox) scares the crap out of me! My mind says no, but my insufficient antibodies say yes.

I learned that I like my new academic job. A lot - although losing the ability to power through some OT for extra $$ kinda sucks.

Went back to my old clinical job for a wedding shower (at 2200 - night shift still rocks) - and while it was nice to see everyone- it was OK to not be the nurse.

PS: Going to Vegas on Saturday to participate in my DNP graduation. Taking the entire family plus daughter's BF from England. Ever seen the commercial where the cowboys are herding cats?????

What have I learned this week?

I re-learned all the lyrics for every song on "Under the Pink." Didn't take too long. Moved on to "Little Earthquakes" and got weepy all over again when belting out "Winter."

My daughter wasn't impressed as I had her trapped in the car when that one came on.

What can I say? I love me some Tori.

Yes, sorry, Farawyn.

Right now, we are focusing on the mobile web and desktop experiences, not the APP.

I still have the app [emoji57]

Yes, it's still there for now, but once it's uninstalled, it cannot be re-installed.

That is scary! Paralysis would be terrifying. I've been getting migraines since my teen years, but only started getting migraines with transient aphasia and vision loss when I started birth control. I talked to my doctor, discontinued the birth control, but unfortunately these migraine symptoms have not subsided.

I had a similar experience with birth control - worked night shift in the ICU and lost half of my visual field, aphasia, could not read, nothing made sense. Scary enough but luckily everybody assured me that it was probably "just" a migraine, I was probably 25 or 26 y old. I stopped the birth control and the migraines subsided somewhat but they only disappeared when I got pregnant.

I had another strange migraine thing with the nuvaring many years later and had to stop - at that time the migraine did not stop and I had to go on topamax for a while to get them under control.

I only get a migraine with aura and aphasia very infrequently now that I am in menopause !

There is something good about that for me ....

"Hello, I'm meanmaryjean... Commencement means "beginning"..."

That's awesome. I wish we all could come. Wouldn't that be great? :D

I learned that eosinophilic esophagitis can be devastating for a patient. I saw a teenager who basically lives on white rice and applesauce. Growth has been retarded due to poor diet, eczema is awful, and this kid is ANGRY! I suppose I would be too. Lots of behavioral issues. I feel very bad for this child.

I learned that I'm "homesick" for my old co-workers. Week 2 at the new job and it feels weird. This too shall pass.

I learned that prescription drug coverage is significantly better in the new state I'm working in. Way to make my job easier!
