Ticking by…

Saturday, February 19, 2011

The night just ticked on by.

Blood pressures every 15 minutes, urine output every hour, oxygen saturation, tidal volumes, heart rate.  Monitoring and marking and noting.

Stocking equipment, emptying trash, turning patients.

My mind is full of checking off “to do” for my patients and the unit as the night goes by.

Day 2 of 4 is done!

I’m using  a little mind game of pretending that I only have to go in for one night each night I go in.  So far it’s working.  It really is mind over matter!!

The weather has changed…its COLD this morning and no more melting slush…it’s all ice again.  Spring, I can hardly wait 🙂
