Where to start...
My ankle is all healed up. That being said there are times when it flares up and leaves me in excruciating pain, but I'm working on increasing my endurance with gradually more and more walking, and losing weight!
Back in December I attempted to return to floor nursing on a PCU, but only made it through 2.5 12-hour shifts. That last shift I left and went straight to urgent care. They took some xrays, told me everything is intact as far as the screws, but due to osteoarthritis I was probably going to need to rethink my work life. I resigned the hospital position. Having started my MSN in October left me with something to do in the meantime.
Later in December I responded to an ad for a position with a new franchise of Comfort Keepers. So I've done some consulting and start of care assessments.
So our nest isn't all that empty. LB is still stationed in MT. His GF is getting ready to move out there to live with him. AW lives locally with his fiance, their baby and his fiance's family. Yep, Big B and I are grandparents. Our grandson is going to be 2 in July. He is the sweetest little guy.
It's funny because while I've decided I should get back into blogging, I'm also procrastinating a bit. I am currently taking a nursing research class. We have a qualitative research article critique due one week from today and I should be working on it. I had already started it last week and have it halfway done... Ahem...Ah well, no time like the present!
