I started work at "Hotel Hoag".  There's a lot to say, but I'm too tired to talk about any of it thanks to NIGHT shift.  I wasn't a great blog updater before but I'm pretty sure you won't hear from me for while until I'm able to adjust to this crazy new schedule I've got.  Night shift does crazy things to you.  On my drive to the hospital for my second shift I started thinking.....I never should've gone to school and gotten my degree in nursing, then I could just get welfare.  Ha, but I was serious.  Completely irrational thought.  I'm actually very grateful for my education, for my friend Shannon who got me a job on her unit (even if it is tele), and for the opportunity I have to practice nursing again.  Now, if I just don't kick any patients out of their beds so I can sleep all will be ok.

I usually wait a long time to announce I'm pregnant because I'm always worried about miscarriages.  But since I announced it on the blog, I have to update the blog.  Last Friday I went in for my 16 week OB visit.  The heartbeat had stopped.  I thought I was safe at 16 weeks.  Anyways, that got me an ER visit that lasted 6 hours (why it takes that long to get an ultrasound is beyond me) and an outpatient surgery the following day.  Needless to say it wasn't a very good weekend.  Physically I am completely recovered from the surgery, but my heart is still heavy.  Still, I know everything will be just fine and I have a lot to be grateful for.
