So I just finished correcting my LAST concept map, yay!!! Did a homework assignment, and MORE importantly had a great day with my family celebrating hubby's birthday at the Reagan library. We had fun, and it was a beautiful day. We topped it off with chocolate pie and dinner at Marie Callendars in Simi Valley. It was a great day.

Well I have to first say, thank you God I passed. I am though... not thrilled with my grade. I got a 78% on my Neuro exam. I am still below the 75% I need in the class. So, I will continue to sweat. And maybe that's good for me, to keep me honest, and on my toes etc. But I DO NOT LIKE IT.
But hey, I am moving on, and beginning to study Oxygenation and Emergency medicine. And on that note, our teacher had HORRID pics on our power points. Ick. I am soooo NOT an ER nurse. hurl. On the other hand, I have been in the ICU for the last 3 weeks, and I love it. There is even possibly an opening in ICU for preceptoring. Sadly, though I don't think I have a chance for it, since they will only choose one person, and they have to be able to work independently, which I really don't think I can. But I reeeeeeeeeealy like it, and might want to do it later, after I get some practice.
So that's it for now. Thanks for your prayers, they really do help, and I feel them holding me up.
How's your week going???
P.S. Thanks Kirsten, for letting me still that little pic up there, hee hee. (like you had a choice!)

I found a small way to take a mini vacation....
While driving home from school, the hospital, etc...
Turn off the radio, the lecture on tape etc... Open your windows wide, pull your hair in a poney (other wise you'll be blinded by hair whippage), and breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeathe. Listen to the quiet. I find myself doing this, with gratitudes for God. Now if you're stuck in bumper to bumper traffic, you'd prob have to close the windows, and put the heat or air on. But try not to put the noise on right away.
Just a little way to refresh, give it a try.
