Turn-over Thursday

19/03/09

  1. 17 degree. Sunny day.
  2. a good sleep helped to clear the weary mind & worried heart.
  3. Putting on my uniform. Searching for my nurses’ watch once again after some times, tucked away in my drawer.
  4. Road closed. Clipsal Car racing began this morning. img_2841
  5. Walked on an alternate route to get to the hospital. Still on time. Phew*
  6. 4th day of orientation. Met nurse managers first thing in the morning.
  7. Blood Glucose Test (BGL) Accreditation. Pricked my own finger. my BGL was 4.5mmol/L at 10am. 🙂
  8. Lunch on the bench, outside in the open space. Just enjoying the breeze and God’s presence & beautiful creations. 🙂
  9. sent to the ward after lunch. my heart was racing. felt there’re butterflies in my stomach. a little anxious.
  10. it’s daunting. it’s awkward. it’s out of my comfort zone. Now.
  11. Ironically, back in the familiar ward setting…after months being away. It’s all coming back slowly…the rush, the busy, distracting environment. It’s all happening!
  12. Met the Clinical Service Coordinator of Q5 – ENT, Head & Neck, Oral-Masillo facial surgery. Friendly and approacable. =)
  13. Met a senior staff nurse who did not make me feel nervous. Friendly nurse. =)
  14. flipped through the Q5 orientation folder.
  15. Got to find out more/read on ‘Tracheostomy’, ‘ Otitis Externa’, ‘Neuro-ophtalmology’ etc. * eyebrows raised*
  16. Got my roster (28/3-24/4/09) Unfortunately, sadly i’ll have to work on 2 Sunday mornings. 😦 hmmm….hopefully no more after that.
  17. Went to the newsagency in the hospital, read some interesting greeting cards full of meaningful wordings. 🙂 Uplifting and encouraging. Made my day. Brightened me up. 🙂
  18. My pretty-always cheerful-smiley-face Support Nurse, Laura is so friendly and eager to help, approacable.
  19. Hot Cross buns.
  20. Went to watch ‘The Confession of a Shopaholic’ with Jan & Mel.
  21. Thanks to Jan for the lovely treat!
  22. we were stuck in the trafficjam in the city, due to the road closure etc…
  23. but, yea! we were late, But…we didnt miss the beginning of the movie.
  24. Thumbs up for the movie. I would rate 4.5 out of 5 for this beautiful good story- movie. 🙂
  25. a dialogue from the movie sounded something like this: ” …you talk Prada?”
  26. we laughed out loud. a couple good laughs.
  27. Tomorrow morning, picking sis up from airport before going to work.
  28. Ward-based Orientation tomorrow.
  29. time for bed. soon. i need enough sleep.
  30. from the card cover: “Love is the best part of waking up every day and the best part of going to sleep and the best part of life in general.” – Ashley Rice
