Tired . . . .

I have worked the last couple of days and have a night off. Yay! I didn't sleep much during the day as I had hoped so I am feeling tired. I was waiting on phone calls from doctors about this cyst on my hand. The NSAID he gave me I believe has helped with the pain but I feel like it has gotten a little bigger and is starting to hurt even with the medicine. I have an appointment in a couple of weeks with a hand specialist to see what he says about this cyst. I was glad that I was able to get in as soon as I did.

Work was good on Monday night. I was able to get my stuff done and leave on time. Tuesday night, I kept having to spend most of my time with one patient when I first got to work and had a couple things to get finished for the day nurse. I was also getting a new patient and was trying to send one home. The patient that was supposed to go home ended up staying because we needed the doctor to call and it was dark when he returned the call. They didn't feel comfortable driving after dark. It just seemed like after I got all these things done, more things kept coming up and I just didn't have time to sit down and chart. I decided to start passing my medications at 0500 to hopefully get done early and chart. It didn't happen as my patients needed some extra TLC! Before I knew it, it was ready to give report. I was glad to finally get to sit down and chart.

School is keeping me too busy. I am hoping after class tomorrow to get this CD-ROM completed that is for 4 clinical hours for my Community Health class. I am hoping to start on this window survey tomorrow for my community assessment and then figure out what questions I need to ask the different areas I have chosen so I can get started getting my binder together. Tonight, I need to work on answering questions for my quiz tomorrow in Old Testament. I never do very good on getting things done when I am tired! The last few weeks I have been answering them in class while he lectures and still have time to study them. I would prefer to have them done before class.

I think I might chill downstairs and try to get ready for my class tomorrow and hopefully getting a few more hours of sleep before class. That would be nice! I also need to do some laundry. Yuck!
