Things are so incredibly BUSY! But..as much as it may stress me out sometimes, I like it..because it helps the time FLY !!!! I am 2 months into this deployment. And haven't had any complete and absolute total breakdowns..just a couple mini ones ;)
School is in FULL Swing..and I'm actually about halfway through my semester. I'm holding strong! I am really proud of myself, its actually been my best semester so far :) And Sunday I FINALLY felt like a real nurse...and I put an IV in :) It was totally awesome to feel confident with my skills! Definitely a good booster after a really rough week.
I'm back at work now, its been about 3 weeks, and BOY did I miss that place (in some ways). It gets completely hectic in the ICU and some people wig out, but I love the fast pace..I work about 1 day a week (12 hours) and it is just ANOTHER thing that helps me get through the days. I also love that I now know sooo much more due to school, and I feel really good knowing whats going on with the patient and seeing the whole picture.
Other news, I'm moving. My in laws spend so much time helping me with Cain while I'm in school, so I spend a lot of time driving back and forth, and since I have clinicals so early in the mornings on the weekends, I sleep there 3-4 nights a week anyways...So..I'm moving in with them! It will save me a lot of money and be easier on all of us. I think that it will be easier on Cain to not go back and forth so much, because it really makes it hard on his schedule and he really enjoys seeing Nana and Pappy. I hope its what is best for us, I feel that right now it is.
Other than that there isn't to much going on..Just making it through one day at a time! I do get to go see Jeff in a few weeks for 4 days. And we are going to be living it up on the beach!!! I am sooooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to that!
