So. Speaking of the Fear of Clowns
via verydemotivational.memebase.com There is this weird fear that some people have of clowns. I find it highly entertaining. In fact I believe there was a TV commercial that monopolized on this fear (I believe it was the Post Office commercial). Then there is my wife. I don’t think she fears them, but they sure give her the creeps. So what does a good husband like myself do? I find...
By the way.. Can you believe it’s the last day of July??
gingerisrunning replied to your post: Operation Coffee Wean I’ve given up soda and coffee for July. I’m going to continue next month as well. Good Luck! Thanks! I think I’ll need it.
Operation Coffee Wean
Operation coffee wean has begun. I drink way too much coffee throughout my day (I’d rather not tell you – it’s an abusive amount). As a result I’m severely and virtually always dehydrated. So I’m trying to cut back on the caffeine and increase the hydration with my old friend Green Tea. It’s a small step – but at least a step in the right direction.

Unsheathed the cannula, held his hand, taut…taut…boom. Lori out on the floor. lol Now, I can do a killer EJ. LMAO… Priceless. Glad I’m not the only one with an IV story. :)
My first IV start →
Over at Scrubs, I shared how crazy my first IV start was years ago. I recently talked about the major differences between the simulation lab and the real thing. It brought back a wonderfully entertaining, yet terrifying 1st for me. Everyone remembers their first IV cannulation don’t they? Who could forget that?!

It’s the miticulous attention to the fine details. The first half of this video he hasn’t even made it to the standing position. Dave emphasizes all the small, fine details that most would consider...

I shared some skillz I learned over at Scrubs Magazine. Six (clever!) everyday nursing tips In nursing school we learned ‘by the numbers’. We were taught each skill step-by-step, one-by-one. We graduated and moved on to ‘real world’ nursing and realized that not only do we not have the time to go by the numbers, but that the numbers can be changed, combined and in some rare instances...
