I didn't realize it had been so long since I last posted here. I've been writing pages for Squidoo and Qondio. Even did a couple of Xomblurbs.
Meanwhile, the main job in the OR continues to nourish me body and soul. I feel so blessed to be able to do a job I enjoy. I feel fulfillment everyday. The job can be physically and emotionally draining, but I get satisfaction knowing I'm helping people get better most of the time. Sure, there are those cases where nothing can be done. Those are the emotionally draining ones. I had 2 of those last week.
My heart goes out to these patients and their families. You tell yourself it's not supposed to be this way. Sometimes there are tears, other times you just have that empty gnawing feeling in your gut. After a while, you quit asking why because there is no satisfactory answer to that question. It just is, that's all.
Enough on that subject. Hopefully the next post will be happier.
Thanks for letting me vent.
