Atarax 10 Mg Pills $108.00

Combiflam $84.00 UPDATE: One of my readers has pointed out to me that it is a common misconception that juvenile onset diabetes is caused by an excessive intake of sugar, combiflam $84.00 and is concerned that this misconception may have received a boost by this post. Combiflam $84.00 Those of us who read medical blogs who have a medical background understand this. Combiflam $84.00 Readers who do not may not understand that I am being sarcastic, combiflam $84.00 that sugar intake has nothing to do with causing diabetes. Combiflam $84.00 I thought this was a legitimate issue and so I’ve added this update to the post. Combiflam $84.00 I appreciate the feedback.

hhhhhhhhhhhhh

Combiflam $84.00 Wow, combiflam $84.00 I had no idea that eating Shredded Wheat was a nursing prerequisite! I would have put it on my applications!
How ironic that I used to eat it!

Combiflam $84.00 Under protest, combiflam $84.00 of course.

Combiflam $84.00 It tasted like horse fodder.

Combiflam $84.00 Unless….. Combiflam $84.00 you smooshed it all up until it looked like a bowl of twigs, combiflam $84.00 added enough sugar to ensure juvenile onset diabetes and then smothered it in milk, combiflam $84.00 which you wouldn’t drink afterward because little brown shredded wheat things were floating in it.

Combiflam $84.00 Ah, combiflam $84.00 memories.

Combiflam $84.00 Now you can become a nurse by eating your Shredded Wheat composed of bite sized, combiflam $84.00 frosted “mini-wheats” in a variety of flavors.

Combiflam $84.00 Sigh……

Combiflam $84.00 Another nursing tradition gone to the resting place of “Cap and Cape Heaven.”

hhhhhhhhhhhhh

My initial experiences as a new RN (back when MTV was just a gleam in a cable company’s eye) were in a Coronary Care Unit.

Combiflam $84.00 A CCU is a very different place than any other unit I’ve ever experienced.

Combiflam $84.00 Patients would talk to me. Combiflam $84.00 They often told me they were going to die. Combiflam $84.00 On that exact day.

Combiflam $84.00 And they did.

Combiflam $84.00 The one thing that the patients found hard to discuss were their “out of body” experiences during codes. Combiflam $84.00 This was not a topic that was widely discussed at the time. Combiflam $84.00 They were afraid the staff would think they were crazy.

Combiflam $84.00 Three patients opened up to me regarding their experiences during the years I worked in the CCU. Combiflam $84.00 Here are their stories:

  • Patient One was a young middle-aged female, combiflam $84.00 in her early 40s. Combiflam $84.00 This was unusual in itself because young women were not a common sight in the CCUs of the late 1970s.
    • She had had an MI and had “coded” requiring defibrillation three days before. Combiflam $84.00 As I did her morning care, combiflam $84.00 she happened to mention that she had felt she had left her body during that time, combiflam $84.00 had followed a light at the end of which was her deceased uncle. Combiflam $84.00 Her uncle informed her that, combiflam $84.00 “….it is not your time. Combiflam $84.00 Jeremy will meet you here.” At which point she remembers being back in her room.
    • The odd thing? Jeremy was her husband. Combiflam $84.00 And he was still alive.
  • Patient Two was, combiflam $84.00 again, combiflam $84.00 younger man in his 40s who had had an inferior MI. Combiflam $84.00 As I began my evening care, combiflam $84.00 he asked me how many people had died in the hospital last night.
    • Now that is not a question I get everyday and I asked him why he wanted to know. Combiflam $84.00 “Oh, combiflam $84.00 just curious, combiflam $84.00” he replied.
    • Later he opened up to me and said that last night two of the patient’s “spirits” had come to get him, combiflam $84.00 asking him to come with them. Combiflam $84.00 He said they were in the corner of the room. Combiflam $84.00 He told them he couldn’t go, combiflam $84.00 his son was a teenager and needed him. Combiflam $84.00 They asked three times and then they were gone.
    • Patient Two had been defibrillated three times the night before.
  • Patient Three haunts me to this day.
    • She was not very old, combiflam $84.00 maybe mid 60s and she kept going into unresponsive ventricular tachycardia. Combiflam $84.00 She required defibrillation multiple times. Combiflam $84.00 I remember standing at the bedside, combiflam $84.00 paddles in hand, combiflam $84.00 while my colleagues worked on her medications and IVs.
    • Eventually things settled down and her rhythm stabilized. Combiflam $84.00 She called me over the bedside.
    • “Do you believe in an afterlife?” she asked. Combiflam $84.00 “Interesting question, combiflam $84.00 ” I answered. Combiflam $84.00 “Why do you ask?” For the record, combiflam $84.00 I happen to be a Christian with a very strong belief in the afterlife, combiflam $84.00 but I sensed this was not the time to discuss it, combiflam $84.00 so I kept the focus on the patient and her situation.
    • What she said next was horrifying. Combiflam $84.00 She had been underground, combiflam $84.00 cold, combiflam $84.00 dark and surrounded by dirt, combiflam $84.00 looking out of a coffin. Combiflam $84.00 All she could see was her sister’s coffin next to hers. Combiflam $84.00 No warmth, combiflam $84.00 no peace. Combiflam $84.00 Just coldness.
    • Her sister had already passed away.
    • I asked her if she felt the need to speak to the hospital chaplain. Combiflam $84.00 She said yes.

Combiflam $84.00 After I left CCU for the challenges of the ICU, combiflam $84.00 I never heard any more stories of my patients’ experiences with death. Combiflam $84.00 Unfortunately in the ER, combiflam $84.00 I will never hear them, combiflam $84.00 as most patients are intubated when coded.

Combiflam $84.00 I once described a code as having a tug-of-war with God. Combiflam $84.00 Every now and then he lets us win.

Combiflam $84.00 I like to think my patients are watching the struggle and appreciate the effort we make on their behalf.

Combiflam $84.00 Even if we lose.

Dipyridamole 75mg Pills $82.00

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Is it just me or is the recent crop of babies exceptionally cute?

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 It’s a very dangerous time for me.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 My baby is almost 16 years old.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I have no grandchildren on the horizon for years.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I’m at that dangerous age between still being able to have a baby (just barely, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I’m pretty sure my ova are using walkers to get to the Fallopian tube and I’d probably have to deliver in a convalescent home) and not having any grandkids to spoil.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The point being that all of a sudden I am in love with babies. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Specifically, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 any and all pediatric patients under the age of one.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I got to hold an 8 month old for about 15 minutes the other day and he decided to carry on a full “conversation” with me.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 It was hilarious; I’d ask him triage questions like, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 “Are you allergic to any medication?” and he’d “talk” for 30 seconds.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 What the heck is going on? Is this like some cosmic joke?

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 One last surge of maternal hormones before they all get taken away? (Sorry, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 guys, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 girl talk here).

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I guess, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 for now, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I shall live out my maternal instincts through the babies at work.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Just another advantage of being a nurse!

******************************

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 It was only 4:00 pm. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The sky was full of dark clouds. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 It seemed much later.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 This particular year, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 we weren’t worried about a draught here in California. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The rain never stopped. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The clouds were just taking a breath before the next deluge.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She walked into the ER with her baby in an infant seat. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Not the cheap old-fashioned plastic versions, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 but the big car seat type that were now on the market. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She completed triage and waited to be seen.

*****

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She was all of 17; maybe she weighed 105 lbs. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 A single mother who lived in the big city adjacent to where my hospital was located. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Her baby had a fever and she was concerned.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Not only was she carrying a huge car seat and baby, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 she had the usual accoutrements. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 A huge diaper bag. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 A large purse.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The baby had a virus, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 nothing serious and we gave Tylenol (no ibuprofen back then).

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 As I gave her the discharge instructions, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I noted that a torrential downpour outside and offered to help her carry her gear to her car.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She said, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 “No thanks!” and pulled out a huge umbrella. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 “I don’t have a car. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 We came by bus.”

*****

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Not only had that petite little mother carried that baby and equipment on a bus to get to our ER, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 she had to make two transfers to get to the bus stop outside the hospital. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Now she was going home the same way. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 In the rain.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I asked her if there was anyone who could come and get her and the baby. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Usually, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 she noted, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 but there was no one else .

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She never asked for a taxi voucher, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 never assumed that anyone else would be responsible for transportation home. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She gathered up her equipment, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 picked up the baby.

*****

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 There was no way in hell I was going to let that girl and her baby go home in that downpour by a two-transfer bus route.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I told her I would call a taxi. Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 She said, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 “Oh no, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 thank you anyway but I don’t have money to pay a taxi.”

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I gave her a taxi voucher.

*****

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I caught hell for it later.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 My boss at the time did not look kindly on giving out taxi vouchers.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 Tough.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The look on her face when I told her she could go home by car was priceless.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 If we didn’t have vouchers, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 I’d have paid for it myself.

Prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 The baby may have been the patient, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 but that day I was able to take care of Mom, prevacid 15mg pills $170.00 too.
