So I am starting to feel much better since last week. Saturday night Scott and I went out for pizza for dinner and then we relaxed. If anyone lives near Woodbury Ronnally’s has amazing pizza!!
Sunday Scott went o his uncle’s farm to help out and I stayed home and canned spaghetti sauce. I can’t wait to make pasta and try out my canned sauce. It smelt so good all day while it was simmering. While it was simmering I watched Fast Five… I haven’t seen the sixth fast and furious movie yet but I cant wait for it to come out on dvd soon so I can buy it. I really love those movies…. may have to do with Paul Walker being in it 🙂
Monday I had my second blood test done to see what my INR is at. I was bummed to hear that it is only at 1.2 😦 I really want it to be between 2-3 so I can stop with the daily injections. It is getting harder and harder to stick myself. I really have a different view point on people who have to give themselves injections all the time. My doctor increased my Coumadin so we will see where my INR is at Wednesday morning. Send good vibes my way please!
Monday evening was the start of Clinicals. I am at Fairview Southdale Hospital and I really love it. I am on a cardiac unit which is very interesting. Monday was an orientation day for us.
This morning I woke up to a very cuddly puppy.
Once we were done snuggling it was breakfast time. I treated myself to a yummy pumpkin waffle with Nutella, Raspberries and sugar free syrup! So delicious.
Also… check out this super cute bracelet my mom got for me…
I haven’t wore it yet because of clinicals but I will definitely be wearing it soon.
After breakfast I headed over to Don’s house to pick some more tomatoes.
I have six tomato plants within this section of the garden.
Lots more tomato, pepper and herb plants!!!
More garden area…. the whole back half of his backyard is all garden. It really is nice. Maisy really loves running through everything. It is nice because Don’s yard is fenced so I can just let Maisy run free.
After picking tomatoes I headed home to prep for my first day of taking care of a patient at clinicals. This evening I took care of a really nice older man. Although taking care of adults isn’t my calling I really do still love being in a hospital.
Ever since I was in Junior High I have known that I want to be a neonatal nurse. Thanks to my mom, I really have a special love for babies. I understand them so well. At work a few of the nurses call me the baby whisperer. I always wanted to be a nurse because I really want to help people and make a difference in their lives. Eventually I will probably go on to be a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.
One last thing and then it is bed time…..
I am SOOOOOO excited for tomorrow morning. I get the opportunity to take a spin class, meet Dara Torres, and try out and review some cool new headphones that Dara helped design. They are called Fitbuds made by Koss Corporation. Tomorrow is going to be so much fun and I cant wait to tell you all about it.
What did you do over the weekend?
When did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up?
