Emergency Nurses Day
A Day in the Life of an Emergency Room Nurse

You know you’re an Emergency Nurse when:
  • You see stress as a normal way of life
  • Your idea of a good time is a code at shift change
  • You occasionally park in the space with the “Doctors Only” sign, and knock it over
  • You have recurrent nightmare of being hit and run over by a portable X-ray machine
  • You silently diagnose people as you walk through the shopping centre
  • Your most common assessment question is “what changed tonight to make it an emergency after 6 years?”
  • When checking the level orientation of your patients, you aren’t sure of the correct answer yourself
  • You have competitions with patients presenting with urinary retention, who has the largest bladder volume
  • Your sense of humour seems to get more “warped’ each year
  • You think transdermal meal patches would be a good idea
  • ‘IDC’s on leg bags for busy shifts’ is your idea of employee bonus
  • Your family members must have a fever over 40° or be missing a limb with active bleeding in order to receive your sympathy.
  • You believe the government should introduce a permit to be able to reproduce
  • You play poker by betting on ectopics on ECG strips
  • You believe “to stupid to die” should be a diagnosis

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
