Spike & Damon - Real vampires don't spar

I Know ... This was Going To Be Written A Couple Of Days ago ... But ...

... Trying hard to think of a valid excuse, and failing.

In fact I owe my brother Nick a letter, but don't tell him, I doing this first!

Yay - I've finished training - Panic - I'm on my own!

I've just done a shift where I was officially "just" a member of staff.  Everything went OK, but still hard to remember what needs to be done, in what order.

Yes, every ward in the hospital runs on the same basis, but it doesn't!  No, I'm not mad.  You have to remember that you have acute & chronic, young & old, operations, illnesses, infections, etc.  So some things have to get delayed whether you want to or not.

I am loving it - Thank you, again, for all your help and support over the last year ... and over the last few weeks.

I know that I am in the right place, my faith in being placed where I should be, as well as the help I've had from you all, has really got me to this point in time.

I love the work - and am amazed at the varity of things I have to do within that duty.  Yes, I make beds and bathe ill people, but I also have to remove catheters and canulas, feed patients, push beds around the hospital, etc.

The staff, so far, have been exceptionally helpful and supportive - and working with the patients is great.  To be able to help people back to recovery, or even to help them if they are "poorly" is a really special thing.  I love it.

So, I have 4 more shifts to do, before I can put in for any pay, but other than that (and the early starts for early shifts) life at R D & E (The Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital) is great.

James - who me???

Tell Me This Won't Happen To Me !!!

Three sisters ages 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together.

One night the 96 year old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses...

She yells to the other sisters, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 94 year old yells back, "I don't know. I'll come up and see."

She starts up the stairs and pauses "Was I going up the stairs or down?"

The 92 year old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters.

She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful," she knocked on wood.

She then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."
