Enalapril 20mg Pills $285.00

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 constipationConstipated since childhood, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 but after 63 years, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 she decided to deal with it on Christmas at 0400.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Okay, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 not really.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Apparently, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 if you are constipated you should eat yeast.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Plain squares of yeast.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 I don’t get the mechanism.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Yeast rises in a warm environment.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 So, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 if you eat it, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 does it keep expanding until it explodes everything in front of it out the, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 uh, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 exit door?

*****

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 I will say that the most interesting chief complaints tend to cluster around the holidays.

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 It goes something like this:

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “Hi! I’m Kim and I’m the nurse; what is the problem this cold, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 icy, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 rainy holiday morning?”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “I’ve had a flaky left baby toe for a week.”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “Is it painful?”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “No.”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “Does it itch?”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “No.”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “What have you done for it so far?”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “I saw my doctor and he gave me a cream, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 but I don’t want to use it.”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “Really? Why didn’t you want to use it?”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 “Because my toe is flaky!”

Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Well, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 okay then…

*****

Something is changing on night shift.

Used to be you could clear out the PM patients by 0100 and only have a rare patient before 0530. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Left a lot of time for studying.

No more. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Now there is a flurry at 2300 (almost all pedi fevers) and a steady stream after that, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 all the way up to day shift. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Croup, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 abdominal pain, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 migraines, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 chest pain, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 nausea/vomiting, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 cough, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 asthma, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 it’s all there. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Can’t blame it on H1N1, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 either; it’s been like this for awhile. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 Summer slump? Haven’t seen one for at least two years.

The problem with this is not that people need care – that is why we are there. Enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 It’s that the unspoken benefits of working the night shift (the slower pace, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 the down time) has virtually disappeared.

It’s getting harder and harder to deal with a dissonant circadian rhythm.

Some of my co-workers are older than I, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 and they work doubles and double-backs and seven, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 eight 12-hour nights in a row.

Just the thought of a 12-hour shift makes me want to run for Zoloft.

When did I turn into a wimp?

(Could be the constant ingestion of sugar, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 salt and fat over the last four weeks……nah)

I mean, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 I am Nurse, enalapril 20mg pills $285.00 hear me roar…

…right after I’m done yawning.

    The idea of yeast? seriously? sounds like someone would bounce back and forth between two extremes, for sure.

    I’m curious about the yeast thing. I may recommend it to my teenaged daredevil cousins next time!

    Nights are hard to work without a little bit of downtime. You’re already exhausted from a lack of sleep and then you have to run around. I’ve only been a nurse for a year and I’m finding that it takes me longer and longer to recover from a string of nights. I used to be a complete night hawk too.

    That whole toe discussion is almost verbatim from Chapter 9 of my book! (Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.) Not that I don’t believe you didn’t hear it. Patients are just startlingly unoriginal.

    Fricking funny post. Well, almost funny. I start my first of three overnights tonight and am a little nervous for all the minutia we will see while still trying to treat the serious stuff. Oh well, Monday will come quickly.

    Happy and Blessed New year to you and yours.

    Hmm, I wonder if anyone is willing to conduct an experiment to test the validity of yeast. Great blog posts Kim! Will definitely be coming back to read more.

    Kim,

    Great post about night shift and I completely agree with you. I hear the nurses that have been at my hospital for a few years talking and they always say how dead the summers used to be and that night shift was always slower than day shift. That’s not the case anymore! We were very busy in the summer, with maybe 1 or 2 nights of twiddling our thumbs, but mostly the summer nights I worked were a blur. Our busy nights used to be Sundays – Tuesdays, now we’re lucky if we get one night a week where the nurses aren’t running from the start of the shift straight through to 3am. Sometimes there’s a lull between 1-5am, but by then most nurses are pooped and do not want to even think about school work, much less do it.

    I do not think you are a wimp because 12-hour night shifts are very difficult. I am 24 years old with no children and still find it tough to work three 12-hour shifts in a row. By the third night, I am sleeping in until the very last minute and my first day off I am a non-productive member of society and my family. I greatly respect the nurses who work several nights in a row, raise their children, and take care of their families on very little sleep!
