I'm Jess. I am a nurse. I am a vegan... not one of the preachy ones though. I love ellipses. Currently residing in the PNW. I have a love/hate relationship with working out, though it leans more towards love.

All my stories are purposefully vague and generalized to protect the guilty... and to abide by HIPPA.

I make none of the .gifs I use and gather them from various sources. I have no idea who makes them, if I did, I would undoubtably give them props. Thank you all the .gif makers out there... without you, my humor could not be adequately expressed. You're the best.


Cutting it close

I finally mailed my taxes out yesterday… 30 minutes before the post office closed. And to think, I promised myself that I’d get them done early this year. I am not to be trusted.
In other news, I finally know where my next assignment will be. I’m heading up to CT to take care of a bunch of rich white people on a cardiac tele unit. I’m excited that there will be a lot more to do there. Unfortunately I have 2 weeks to kill until that assignment starts after this one ends… and I don’t know what to do with myself. Guess I’ll do something vacationy.

I got floated to the cardiac tele floor tonight. Just chest paineurs and tele monitor dinging. Not a PCA, ostomy, or drain in sight. Heck, no one is even connected to an IV pump.
That being said, I have started IVs on 4 of my 5 patients tonight. All on first attempt. One patient was even a “hard stick”. Are my IV skills back from vacation?

  • But you have so much to live for
  • Please explain
  • think of me
  • Don’t fall in
  • I’ll alert the media
  • Good luck
  • Have fun
  • Mention my name and you’ll get a good seat
  • I hope everything comes out ok. 
  • Miss you already.
