Unless I find some time and think of some old stories there will be nothing new here for a little while. I'm going to the other side of the bed (or should I say my daughter is) and I will be off for the next 1 1/2 weeks.
My daughter has a laryngel cleft and is going to have it repaired tomorrow (Monday, July 14). I think it is hard to be a nurse and be on the other side of the bed for any reason. Whether it is youself or any family member.
I recently experienced this with my husband as he had an AFib ablation done just prior to Christmas and then his follow up in April. And I have experienced it a ton with my daughter as she has had issues since birth and this will be her 5th hospitalization in her almost 3 years.
I have yet to decide if being a nurse makes it harder because you want to "do it all" or if it is because you just know too much. Or in the case of my daughter I know too much but too little at the same time as I have no real pedi experience. Either way, I'll be away from this blog until I come back to work. But if you want updates on her progress you can still visit me at her blog titled Jenny's Journey.
Good tidings until I'm here again.
