Sometimes it all works

It's pretty rare that I even think about work once my day is over. However , once in a great while, some things just really get to you (in a good way).
I had a younger patient who had a cardiac arrest, witnessed by his wife. Now the current survival rate of cardiac arrest is 2-7%, depending on your source of imformation. Long story short....after 3 days this man is walking, talking, and steadliy working toward his full function. I feel really priveledged to be a part of this. So many times we "do everything we can" even though we know it's in vain. It was so good to see that sometimes, it all works.

I quietly celebrated this little victory with Jamie. We had a lovely dinner, and spent some great time together cuddling and watching cartoons. What a great reminder of what the important things in life really are.

Oh yeah....learn CPR, you never know.....

Some updates on projects and stash acuisition....









Catching up






Well, I just noticed that I haven't posted anything in over six months! I apologize if anyone actually tried to read this blog and was overwhelmed by all the smut adds! That will teach me to not put a block on comments.






Obviously, I have been so busy, I haven't even checked this thing. Kids are great, projects are good, and getting settled into yet another new job. I really loved the previous one, but the time commitment and traveling was really cutting into my family life. New job is 3.5 miles away (instead of 40!!), and 24 hours a week, straight days. It's just too bad that working with all women is just like being in highschool again.






Kids and my dear neice had a great time in Florida in early December, as well as a great Christmas. I highly recommend the Nickelodeon hotel if you travel to Orlando, especially if you have a larger-than-nuclear family.






Here are some updated pics.
