Tenormin 50mg Pills $174.00

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 navynurse

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 I swear I was born thirty years too late.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 I was meant to wear this uniform.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Navy nurses had the best nursing caps, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 too! Perfect shape with your rank in stripes across the top!

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 I rue the day padded shoulders went out of style.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Everything I wore had padded shoulders in the ’80s.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 It is sort of ironic.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 By the time I was in a position to join the military, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 they told me I was too old.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Cherry Ames never aged, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 we don’t have that luxury in real life.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 How my inner hippie manages to co-exist peacefully with my inner military officer persona is something I will never understand!

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

Alzheimers.

Not quite end-stage, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 but the patient couldn’t talk.

Couldn’t cooperate with any procedures.

Needed three people to hold her arm down for a blood draw.

Definitely felt discomfort when straight cathed for a urine specimen.

Just another elderly patient with advanced alzheimers and a fever who required a full septic workup.

Could do it with my eyes closed.

Except she looked me in the eye. Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 She didn’t flinch when I told her I was going to put a tube for oxygen in her nose and gee, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 wasn’t that mask uncomfortable.

Dorothy was in there.

*****

Dorothy was a nurse.

Oh, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 she had been retired for years.

She had served in the United States Navy Nurse Corp in World War II.

In the Pacific, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 and in Japan after the war.

Following her service with the Navy, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 she was a staff nurse in the midwest.

After taking a few years off to have children she returned to the profession as a school nurse for a decade, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 followed by community nursing for another decade.

*****

I asked her son if she had gone to school through the Nursing Cadet program.

He didn’t know.

I asked him if she had ever told him any stories of her work in the navy.

He couldn’t remember any.

I would have given anything to have her tell me some of those stories.

I would have remembered them.

*****

Dorothy had lived through an amazing era.

She had experiences and experience now lost to history. Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Stories she could no longer relate.

To anyone.

*****

Dorothy is a member of what has been termed “the greatest generation”.

And we are losing them daily.

So many times I have sat at the bedside of a veteran of World War II who will regale me with stories of their time in the Pacific theater or in Europe.

“I was a fighter pilot, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 you know.” (Translation: please see me as a productive human being and not just this elderly shell of a person in a gurney).

So many times I have sat vigil as my patient was dying, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 hearing stories from their family about how proud the patient was to have served during the war.

But they’ve never been nurses.

Now I had in front of me a real “Cherry Ames”.

How I would have loved to sit with a cup of coffee and talk about her life.

I like to think she would have been willing to tell me her story.

*****

That patient with advanced alzheimers, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Dorothy, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 came alive for me that night.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 She was a human being, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 not just a febrile elderly body.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 She is a nurse.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 For you see, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 although Dorothy had been retired for many years, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 once you are a nurse you are always a nurse.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 I am proud to consider myself her colleague.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 She is a veteran.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 For that she has my respect.

*****

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 If you know an elderly nurse, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 talk to her. Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Write the stories down. Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Tape the conversations.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 The pioneers of our profession are getting older and someday their stories will be lost to us forever.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Before we are resigned to reading their stories in history books, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 let’s take advantage of their vast experiences while we still have the opportunity.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Nursing practice has changed dramatically in just the 29 years that I’ve been privileged to be a part of the profession.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 But the basics of nursing, tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 the heart of the profession has not changed.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 It lives on in nurses like Dorothy.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Let’s find them and learn from them.

Tenormin 50mg pills $174.00 Before they are gone forever.

Synthroid 100mcg Pills $124.00

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 silkstone

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 Aw, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 man!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 I see this two days after Christmas.

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 I want this doll and I want her bad!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 They gave her a stethoscope!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 And a totally freakin’ cool cap!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 They made her shoes look like flats instead of pumps!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 (You can’t blame Barbie for wearing pumps. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 She has spent the last 45 years wearing high heels and has horrible foot-drop.)

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 She probably has plantar fasciitis and has to wear heels.

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 Oh, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 and by the way, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 this is exactly how I look at work, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 every day!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 I kid you not!

Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 I look exactly like this until I happen to glance into a mirror and see reality staring back at me, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 but until I do this is me!

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

My little Mac widget dictionary/thesaurus (which I cannot live without) defines “gall” as “bold, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 impudent behavior”.

Once upon a time a patient was talking on her cellphone while sitting in the gurney awaiting evaluation by the ER phsician.

She glances up and keeps on talking!

The doctor stood at the bedside, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 hands behind his back and stared at the patient.

She kept on talking! The conversation wasn’t even related to her ER visit. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 If I remember correctly, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 it was gossip about last night’s dinner companion.

The doctor pulled up a chair, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 sat down, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 crossed his legs, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 folded his hands and continued to stare at the patient.

She kept on talking!

After ten minutes, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 she ended the conversation and turned to look at the doctor, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 who promptly informed her that (1) she had talked through the entire time he had to evaluate her, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 and that (2) she would have to move to the back of the queue before he would be able to see her again.

He left the room.

She looked at me.

I said something about “blowing it” by talking on her cell phone when the doctor was at the bedside.

“Well it would have been rude to just hang up!”

Indeed.

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

Fast forward a bazillion years.

Father brings in son in the middle of the night for a fever. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 They are welcomed into the triage room.

The nurse begins the assessment. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 The cell phone rings. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 It’s grandma, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 wanting to know what is going on. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 Never mind that the kid has only been gone from the house for five minutes.

The nurse politely waits for the father to cut the cell phone call.

He doesn’t.

The nurse politely asks the father to stop talking on the cell phone so the triage assessment can continue.

The father lays the cell phone down but does not hang up! The nurse asks a couple more questions regarding the history and the father picks up the phone and starts talking again!

The actual physical exam was next and febrile screaming toddler would have none of it. Sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 As the nurse tries to ausculate the lungs the screaming, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 febile screaming toddler is hitting the nurse in the face and all the nurse can hear though febrile screaming toddler’s chest is the father’s voice.

The nurse sits back and waits for a break in the conversation to ask father to hang up.

It never comes.

She decides to assert herself anyway and ask the father to hang up the phone so that triage may continue.

Father nods his head and keeps on talking.

The nurse ever so subtly brings herself up to her full height while siting in the chair, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 ever so slightly elevates her voice to an authoritarian timbre and informs the father that if he does not hang up the phone now, sildenafil citrate 100mg pills 270 $374.00 this triage session will end until he does.

The father pouts (actually pouts!) and hangs up the phone.

“Well she is concerned!” he explains.

Indeed.
