Lowest Cost Generic Viagra

Lowest cost generic viagra hallmark

Lowest cost generic viagra Of course I bought this ornament for every nurse in the family.

Lowest cost generic viagra Except…I forgot to buy one for myself!

Lowest cost generic viagra Something tells me I’ll get it for Christmas, lowest cost generic viagra and probably from one of the people I bought it for!

Lowest cost generic viagra Okay, lowest cost generic viagra I’ll admit it.

Lowest cost generic viagra I’m one of those people who start looking for Hallmark’s new ornaments in July.

Lowest cost generic viagra I gotta have the newest ones. Lowest cost generic viagra I’ve got a million of ’em!

Lowest cost generic viagra I need more room! So, lowest cost generic viagra I packed up all the old ornaments for the kids – a box for each of them. Lowest cost generic viagra For when they are married.

Lowest cost generic viagra They wanted to know if I was dying.

Lowest cost generic viagra I said “Yeah, lowest cost generic viagra dying to make room for my new collections!”

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

All year long, lowest cost generic viagra I work with the same people. Lowest cost generic viagra Day in. Lowest cost generic viagra Day out. Lowest cost generic viagra Side by side, lowest cost generic viagra we deal with anything and everything the public can dish out. Lowest cost generic viagra Occasionally we get on each other’s nerves. Lowest cost generic viagra It passes and our work continues.

December has fallen, lowest cost generic viagra another year is history. Lowest cost generic viagra A year of sharing experiences both personal and professional, lowest cost generic viagra humorous and tragic.

An emergency department is best described by the people who work there. Lowest cost generic viagra The holidays bring out the best in all of us.

Here’s a view of my “neighborhood” during the holidays and an introduction to some of the characters that populate my ER.

*****

There is a beautiful tree in the ER, lowest cost generic viagra right by the ambulance entrance. Lowest cost generic viagra The nurses made sure it was decorated just right. Lowest cost generic viagra An immediate release of endorphins ensue on sight.

Meet the evening shift RN who stands for hours mixing homemade candy – at least eight different types – and then puts together a sampler for each staff member. Lowest cost generic viagra I start salivating in anticipation around October! Mrs. Lowest cost generic viagra See’s has nothing on this nurse!

Stacked in the back of the breakroom you’ll find cases of champagne, lowest cost generic viagra specially chosen by the ER doctors as gifts for the department. Lowest cost generic viagra We’re talking champagne with a capital “C” here, lowest cost generic viagra folks. Lowest cost generic viagra I know. Lowest cost generic viagra I drank some when I got home from work two days ago. Lowest cost generic viagra Who says you can’t have champagne at eight am? You can in my neighborhood!

*****

Your sense of smell will lead you to the break-room, lowest cost generic viagra laden with baskets generously gifted to the ER by the local doctors. Lowest cost generic viagra Crackers, lowest cost generic viagra salami, lowest cost generic viagra cheeses, lowest cost generic viagra smoked salmon, lowest cost generic viagra coffee, lowest cost generic viagra teas, lowest cost generic viagra Belgian chocolates, lowest cost generic viagra peanut brittle, lowest cost generic viagra fruit, lowest cost generic viagra nuts, lowest cost generic viagra bolts…well, lowest cost generic viagra you get the idea.

Every morning a night nurse packs up the pre-made boxed lunches that have reached their due date. Lowest cost generic viagra She’ll drop them off at a homeless shelter on her way home. Lowest cost generic viagra Early next year she will embark on her annual mission to a country I can’t even find on a map. Lowest cost generic viagra There is a package from her under my tree. Lowest cost generic viagra She made me promise to wait until Christmas. Lowest cost generic viagra I could open it early, lowest cost generic viagra but she’d know. Lowest cost generic viagra Somehow she would just know.

Amidst the announcements and reminders in our mail boxes you will find tiny morsels and gifts from the staff to each other. Lowest cost generic viagra Similar to stocking stuffers, lowest cost generic viagra they’re box stuffers! Squares of mint chocolate bark, lowest cost generic viagra See’s Suckers with a tiny gift tag attached. Lowest cost generic viagra A goodie a day keeps the doldrums away in my neighborhood. Lowest cost generic viagra Somehow that reminder to do the medication reconcilliation record seems much nicer with a Hershey’s Kiss attached!

*****

A unit coordinator tried to hide a tiny gift box behind my coffee cup. Lowest cost generic viagra Luckily I found it immediately, lowest cost generic viagra for it contained a gorgeous pair of Christmas-themed earrings. Lowest cost generic viagra Now I can enjoy them for two weeks before the holiday. Lowest cost generic viagra That was one gift just begging to be opened early, lowest cost generic viagra I just had to do it! And last night I had to wear them!

I’ll introduce you to the nurse who worked a double shift the day after he was sick to cover someone else who was sick. Lowest cost generic viagra It’s that time of year. Lowest cost generic viagra We pitch in for each other. Lowest cost generic viagra He pitches in. Lowest cost generic viagra Often.

Saturday at six am, lowest cost generic viagra one of our orthopedic doctors will drop by a box of warm donuts, lowest cost generic viagra fresh from the oven. Lowest cost generic viagra He does this all year – every weekend. Lowest cost generic viagra We make sure we have a fresh pot of coffee on for him. Lowest cost generic viagra Sometimes he’ll stop and have a cup even if they do have Starbucks in the doctors’ lounge!

*****

Oh good! Here’s the co-worker whose enthusiasm for education makes me enthusiastic as I embark on my journey to my BSN. Lowest cost generic viagra Many factors led to my deciding to pursue my degree but her example is one of the most significant. Lowest cost generic viagra When I look back on my career, lowest cost generic viagra our meeting will have been a turning point.

Let’s say thank you to the RN responsible for giving the nurses’ station its seasonal glow. Lowest cost generic viagra It doesn’t have to be Christmas; she decorates every month of the year. Lowest cost generic viagra The candy strewn amongst her decorations always disappears, lowest cost generic viagra only to be replaced the next day. Lowest cost generic viagra Can’t imagine where it goes!

Are you ready for some football?? Well one of our emergency room technicians is, lowest cost generic viagra too! Join us in praying that Brady Quinn is a first-round draft pick of the Raiders because if he is, lowest cost generic viagra our ER will be become a state in the Raider Nation! One cannot live by ER alone – can you say “season tickets”?

*****

That’s just a sampling of my “neighborhood”.

There’s the doctor who puts life into perspective and keeps me from the brink of burn out. Lowest cost generic viagra Don’t forget the day shift RN who is truly an angel with the patients and has more energy than the Tasmanian Devil. Lowest cost generic viagra Then we have unit coordinators who take it from the public, lowest cost generic viagra endure the doctors and keep the nurses organzized without missing a beat and always with a smile. Lowest cost generic viagra Thank goodness we have a nurse with a direct line to all the Mary Kay make up we can ask for – how often can you Christmas shop at work?

All-in-all, lowest cost generic viagra it’s a pretty special place.

And if I have to work, lowest cost generic viagra I’m happy to be spending Christmas with all these people in my ER neighborhood.

    Kim,
    You make me want to go do something special… what an inspiration! I’d love to hear how your coworkers describe you. 🙂 You should ask them to write something for the blog.

    Your post is truly “Greetings of the Season!”

    I hope that every ED copies it and owns it as theirs. This is one time that plagiarism does no harm. :^)

    Thanks for bringing to life the lovely people you work with.

    A very touching tribute. If everyone amongst the healthcare providers had the same attitude the year round, there would be much less illness, quicker recovery and better mental health and well-being for everyone around the hospital as well as outside.

    Great job describing our home away from home. Merry Christmas Kim.

    Where did you find this ornament? I collect Nurse ornaments….not just any…. I don’t like the snowmen, kiddie looking stuff, etc. I do like the professional looking ornaments. I have looked on line to find more, but just keep getting “cute” type ornaments.
