Hey friends. I haven't updated my livejournal in a coons age. So it is almost a year working in Detroit at Henry Ford Hospital. It has been stressful working in the cardiac icu. People dying left and right is not fun. I am still nervous sometime going to work. With someone's live in your hand you don't really want them to crook. I have had to shock couple of my patients so far none of my patients have died on my shift. I will not allow it, too much paper work. They can crash but they will not burn. I will keep them pumping with vasopressors.

Valentines day was crazy. I worked during the day and it was fine but throughout the night 5 passed. It was the most in one day for our unit. I come back the next morning and there were more empty beds then when I left the night before. Now I am working night shift it is more calm. I can actually listen to some music on my ipod while working, of course I only use one head phone in my non dominate ear. So when someone is going into V-tach I will hear the alarms.

Today I have been productive trying to get my investments on track. I started 403b plan and also a stock trade online. I will invest 1grand into something not yet know, I am still researching. Telecommunication is a big sector along with biochem/pharma and semiconductors. I can't wait to do some live trading. I am going to start small investing in smaller priced share and try some higher shares. I also started a long term investment through mutual funds.

I also finished my taxes. I am not happy paying the state of Michigan 200 some dollars. I got some money back from the feds hopefully more if W. Bush tax cut is true. So in May I took 3 days vacation time off. But how I scheduled my work I don't have to work for 2 weeks. Basically I worked the scheduling system. You normally have to work 3 days a week, So I scheduled 3 in a row the first week, Sun, Mon Tues. The second week I took my vacation time 3 days. the third week I scheduled myself to work the end of the week Thurs, Fri, Sat. Therefore ending up with almost 2 weeks not having to work. They probably will call me in to work like they always do, but I will decline.

I can't wait for the madness in March. People are insane day walkers. I now hate the light working on the midnight shift since beginning of March. GO STATE.

So it was a lie when you told me about your patients dying?

Also, you say you will take a vacation in May and go on to explain how you got the time off.... you neglect to say what you will do with this time off.

Piss poor posting, welcome back. Get it together.
