It is quite chilly outside. It's around 32 degrees...but the wind is blowing fiercely (20-40 mph with gusts up to 60msp), so needless to say, it feels much colder. But, I do like it. :)
My parents are coming Thursday morning to visit for a few days. My youngest brother might be coming with them...I guess it all depends on how my high school does in the playoff game tonight.
I'm off orientation at the hospital. Yesterday was my first day completely on my own. Everyone kept asking how I was doing. I know they were being kind, but at times it made me feel like I was supposed to be struggling, that it wasn't supposed to be going as smoothly as it did. Oh well...in time that will pass. I feel confident in my skills, and I know when I need to go ask for help if I'm unsure of something...I suppose it will just take some time for everyone else to realize that.
I started my first IV yesterday completely by myself without any one standing behind me, watching. :) And I got it in one poke. :) And I remember to do everything right, and I didn't get blood all over the place, and the patient said that this IV felt better than the first one she had in. :)
I will take the small successes.
