Quick Update...

Things are hectic... Finals are coming up and there are assignments due. My husband is recuperating beautifully! It is exciting that the semester will be over soon. Last OB clinical tomorrow. Look for vlog posts soon but right now I am swamped. But things are generally good. Spring as sprung which is making focus hard but it is my favorite time of year! All the best to all and thanks again for all the support!

Reflections on today. A long and difficult day. It is an enlightening experience to be a patient's wife. Now that I am also in the role of professional caregiver, I find the extra knowledge I have aquired has positive and negative aspects... I am once again amazed at the experienced nurses and how supportive they can be to the family as well as their patients while doing 1001 things. What a priviledge it will be to join this community.

Reflections on this semester in nursing school, specifically clinicals. There has been a lot of stuff going on in my life, causing some self-doubt. It has not been easy. I will be posting more on the subject. I am determined to make it through.

Let's Talk About Life

Or birth to be more precise. Check out the divine MissBHavens giving us a tour of her Labor and Delivery Unit. Courtesy of one of my favoritest vlogs: "The Miscellaneous Mischievous Misadventures of Missbhavens."

Let's Talk About Death

If you do only one thing today - do this: Go and check out "90 Seconds of Dave" and the series of video pieces he has done on death. This is the best thing I have seen on the subject in a LONG time. Well, except maybe hospice nurse Mia's blog "Death Maiden".

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7 to follow later today.

Why are you still reading this? Go. NOW. You won't regret it.

Sunday Drive

A Sunday drive from Brooklyn to New Paltz, New York, a picnic next to a stream, and assorted parrot hyjinx. A little on the long side.
