It looks like a good one, I’ll be reading later today.
Thanks to everyone who took time to send me a note of sympathy over the passing of my brother-in-law. He was the manager of a large trauma unit and the outpouring from both his hospital and my sister’s hospital has been overwhelming.
In view of my sister’s privacy, I won’t go into details of the location of the accident, but let’s just say it made the papers and it is an absolute miracle that my sister survived. Her injuries were orthopedic in nature and while they will require multiple surgeries over the next couple of years, she is alive and coming to terms with what happened.
If you ever can come to terms with the death of your spouse.
Have I ever said that shock is a wonderful thing? Not physiologic, but mental…..
At any rate, she has a huge support system in place so I was able to come home after 36 hours.
I’m not really up to myself this week and my colleagues at Nursing Jobs.org pitched in. Do check them out. Mother Jones, Labor Nurse and Guest Blogger Teri Mills from National Nurse.org will be handling the Nursing Jobs.org blog columns this week.
This week is also the week for Change of Shift, and it will be over at Nurse Ratched’s Place on Thursday. Submission deadline was the 13th, so I have no doubt Mother Jones is cooking up a good edition over there!
Thanks again for all your prayers and support.
