Dog Walking

A little over 3 years ago my husband and I had acquired a 4-month old Yellow Lab named Zoe.   A friend and co-worker offered her up with no price tag and no catches attached after his wife had brought her home, which would’ve made Zoe their 3rd pet in the house, and their financial situation […]

Cheating Death

Over the past few weeks I’ve had lots of time to reflect about some serious events that have taken place over the course of my 39 years, and it has reminded me of the fact that I am very lucky to be alive.  As an infant in the early 70’s, I contracted a severe case of chicken pox .

Just two days earlier, his urologist had surgically implanted a suprapubic catheter.  A quick bio of DH: he’s been a quadriplegic for the last 27 years & has dealt with more bladder infections […]

I did it!

I will be posting mostly about my experiences at work, which I hope others in the healthcare industry find useful or even entertaining. Stick with […]
