    Default It's been far too long..

    Since I've been here!

    I've been so focused on school that I haven't had much time for anything else.. in addition to working whenever I can and trying to stay healthy.

    Things are going well, due to graduate from nursing school on May 5th!!

    Starting to consider a human baby in addition to our fur-baby, LOL =)

    Alas, with that comes a list of doctor visits and questions and blah blah blah.... ugh. I'm daunted just thinking about it, but I know it'll be worth it.

    Currently I'm not feeling so great, trying to fight off a sinus thing (been doing my pediatrics rotation, little ones carry lots of germies!) Perhaps I should re-think my consideration to work in that particular area??

    Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say hello, see how everyone was doing and try to catch up!

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change...
    The courage to change the things I can...
    And the wisdom to know the difference.

    Shannon,
    Welcome back to the WHL family! I remember you well. Congrats on the impending graduation. I'm sure that you will make a great nurse.
    Perhaps working in a rheumy's office would be a good choice for you?
    Hugs,
    Marla

    That's something I hadn't yet considered, but a great idea! =)
    I definitely don't see myself working in a hospital setting, at least not for very long... perhaps to get my obligatory "experience" but that's it.

    Trouble is, everywhere I've been placed for clinicals, I fall in love with! I can find the good things in each place and could see myself working in each setting quite easily. I'm hoping that when I find my "calling" I'll know it.

    Hi Shannon,

    Nice to see you again.
    You are so close to gratuation, that must be very exciting.
    I always wanted to be a nurse, I don't know, why I never persued it.
    Wishing you luck with your baby plans.

    Debbie
    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Thanks, Debbie =)
    Yes, I am super excited to be this close.. it's kind of surreal, it felt for a long time like I'd never be done!
