the reality of my life

Last Friday, I had a classmate ask me to look and see if she had an ear infection. After checking her ear and realizing that yes, in fact, she did and would need antibiotics, I felt a sense of accomplishment. I am a nurse and not just in the hospital. I now know what to look for, what’s normal, abnormal, etc., for the ears, nose, mouth…and then I realized how awesome it is to have people who you can trust to care for you, I’m fortunate enough to call these people friends, cg members and professors.

I love that I can spend over 30 hours a week with some of these people and we can still laugh, cry or whine together. I love that when we’re up at 2:00 in the morning working on concept maps that are due by noon the following day we can still manage to make each other laugh through the insanity.

I’m also very grateful that when I’m not feeling so hot, due to some health issues, that my classmates pick up my slack and give endless grace. So very thankful.

Trying to soak up what seems to be flying by…thankful for so much.
