My lost week!!

Well here it Friday and I haven't gotten anything fun done. However I have been able to read my scriptures. I would like to make it to Joann's to get some knitting supplies before the weekend is over. I want to knit Rachele a purse sometime soon.

The reason I haven't gotten anything done other than scripture reading is I am having issues with my kidney's...I have two stones in my left kidney and every once in a while they get moving in there and cause me extreme pain. So I spent most of the week drugged up on Vicodin...when I could because Lee still had to work this week so sometimes I just had to deal with the pain.

We did get to put the kids in one's working out okay. Kenny is adjsuting well to sleeping with sister. The biggest problem is getting her to sleep without waking him up. We could only afford one mattress so they are sleeping on the bottom bunk together for now but thats no big deal...they have lots of room on that big full sized bed. Kenny loves playing in his old room. Rachele likes having more room to play. We just have a few more adjustments that need to be made in the playroom and they will have lots of fun.

I have a picture to share also but it has nothing to do with what I talked about other than my kids are in it. I wanted to share more pictures but for some reason they won't upload.

My calling!!!

Okay so we have been in our Michigan ward for two years and I have gotten my first calling.... I am going to teach in primary.... the nine year olds. Wow I can't even handle my nine year old nephew how am I going to handle 5 nine year olds.....4 boys and 1 girl. I have been told they are a great group of kids and I will be fine. However I still doubt myself. The best part is that I've been trying build on my testimony of the Book of Mormom and thats what we are teaching this year. So I'm really excited about that. I have a great primary presidency to call on if I need help.

The bishop said to Lee you'll be next so I'll keep you all posted on him.

A week off of school!!!

I have a whole week of no school....but I still have homework and two take home tests that are due when I get back.

I plan on doing a little sewing and knitting and catching up on my scripture reading.

If plans work out we will be combining the kids into one room to sleep in and making the other a paly room. My parents house is a little on the small side for two families and two very active kids. Not to mention Rachele's room is always a pig stye(sp) if one of us doesn't clean it she can't even get to her bed. So I hope we can get this done over this week too. It is all based on if the bunk bed we are looking at is a twin over a full. It's at a really good price and we hope its what we want. Actually I just got a call from my dad and the bed is a full over full. Big beds. So with any luck this week my son will be sleeping in a pink room. Maybe we can make it half blue since the room will be empty. Well anywho that is my plan we will see how it goes.

It's so strange how things aren't always what they seem. I have come to the conclusion that we can't make life what we want... it is what God has in store for us. I have no idea why it has taken me 31 years to figure this out but it has or even why being LDS hasn't opened my eyes to this. Of course maybe being LDS did bring me to this conclusion. I reread my patrarcical blessing and found lots of insight to why it seems like we are having such bad luck. Thats not just Lee and I but my whole family. With health issues and the many other things going on. It's just funny.

My Day Yesterday!! (barrowing from Emily)

Okay my day started with the alarm going off at 4:30am.
Getting up at 4:45 and getting in the shower.
Packing my lunch and walking out the door at 5:15.
Stopping at the gas station to fill up the truck.
Signing in at the Hospital at 6am.
Getting assigned a patient and headed off to see what was going on with him.
I did my ventilator checks and did the paper work.
I went to see if anyone needed help and of course they did so I drew some blood, got the values and notified the doctor.
Then I did a visual check on my patient and everything is fine.
At 8:30am I get to go to breakfast. I bought a bagel instead of eating my pecan roll that I brought with me.
At 9am I go back to the floor and check on my patient and do the paper work.
I then go on rounds with the doctors and inform them whats going on with my patient and they said go ahead and wean my patient.
I do the changes on the ventilator and do the paper work.
Once rounds are done I give my patient his breathing treatment.
I do the paper work on that and see if anyone needs help.
My fellow classmates patient needs to be moved up in bed so all of us ladies move him took six of us.
We then go to lunch at about 1pm.
After lunch it is time to check on the ventilators again and do more paperwork.
My patient also needs his breathing treatment.
We then find out that we are getting a new pateint from the ER so we need to get the ventilator ready.
But before we can do that the doctor stops us and informs us that we need to extubate (take the breathing tube out) of one of the other patients.
So my fellow class mate and I get everything ready so that she can take the tube out.
Everything goes smoothly and the patient is so glad to have it out.
I then wheel out her vent and clean it and check it out and get it all ready for the next the person that may need it.
My class mate and I go into the room where the new ER patient will be staying when she gets there and set up her ventilator. I must say I did all by myself and did it right.
We then go down to ER with the other therapist and transfer the patient up to her room.
We get her to her room and everything is good.
The doctors come in and tell me can you do this and this. I say sure can I'll let the therapist know. I then tell her and she says wait a few minutes because sometimes the transport ventilators don't do as well and give her time for her to get use to her new ventilator.
So I then go do my last ventilator check on my pateint get the paper work done and get some information about my patient so I can do my paperwork for school.
I then go draw the blood from the new patient with a butterfly needle not the usual syringe. Very cool I must say.
Well it is now 6pm and time to give report to the new shift.
When then go down to the department and get our stuff and at 6:30 and we head off to the parking structure.
I get home at about 7pm.
Eat dinner at 8pm then go to bed at about 9.
We then watch a movie with the kids and I'm sleeping by 11pm.

And that is my day in a nut shell. I feel like I never stopped working but when I thought back on it, my day didn't seem that busy. I did leave out that while waiting for dinner I checked my e-mails and seen what was going on in blog world.

Hope I didn't bore you guys too much.
