Day Off

Thank goodness I have today off. I had to get my girlie parts looked at today by a regular OB/GYN. I had to reschedule the appointment for today. Stoopid work schedule. It is sort of nice to have the day off in the middle of the week, though. I got to sleep in.

That big case I was so worried about went fine. I was really impressed at how well the surgeon did. Her stitches looked beautiful. I did sort of feel sorry about the resident trapped under the robot between the patient's legs, but she was there for a reason. At least it was not me. I have a hunch that I will be assigned to other robot cases now that I have done a couple. This particular surgeon has another one scheduled next Tuesday. At least it is only one case, and not the whole day marathon like yesterday.

I have another chance to make my agility class today. I found the physical location this past weekend, so I have a better shot at actually attending the class this week. I have been sort of slack with spending time training my dog. Hopefully she will do well at class this week. I will let you all know how it goes.

"I did sort of feel sorry about the resident trapped under the robot between the patient's legs,.." Ok, all kinds of images just ran through my head.

Good luck with the dog training, sounds like fun. I just have cats, for now, I've trained them to sit on command, but as for anything else-yeah right-they are cats.

Yeah, I had interesting images pop through my head as well.
It is nice to sleep in isn't it!?

Hi there! Here from ICLW--and a fellow nurse and dog-lover. I've been flip-flopping on whether or not to take my dog to agility classes. He's sweet and obedient (star of that class), but a bit of a scaredy-cat with new things. Do you think agility is only for the brave???

Read your IF history--oof. My story: Married 94, Live Baby 2006. Long road but it is worth it if you can keep walking and stay sane. Best to you.
