Wow so today was crazy!!! I knew yesterday that it would be bad but I had no idea! I have a patient who is 20, with Down's, degenertative joints, gout, and a slew of other health issues. He is a total sweetheart and absolutely adores me (I'm partial but whatever lol) So he needed bloodwork pulled today. The nurse came in from Memphis for he re-certification for home health and IMMEDIATELY he screamed. She was an "outsider" to him. It took a long time for him to calm down. Anywho, we started off with 3 people (me, his mom & his aunt) holding him so he wouldn't "buck" in his chair.

When it was all said and done it took 6 people AND 7 butterfly needles and & sticks to get ONE (yes, one) vial of blood. *wipes forehead* Talk about a workout without trying to. He wanted to get naked soon as the nurse left so I helped him. Not 30 minutes later, he's walked into the kitchen where we were all at talking. :)

McKenzie has been walking around with no diaper since I got off at 3. She would tinkle a little when she felt the diaper on her booty. So I tricked her. I put the diaper on her lower back then sat her butt on the pot. SUCCESS!!! Now if we can keep this up I don't have to buy diapers anymore.

I should've wrote this out yesterday but Saturday was so busy! Jeremy and I joined the gym and went. I did a combo of the eliptical and the treadmill and I must say that eliptical machine is the devil!! But I love it! I am on this site called MSOS and I think being in this "group" of workouters (is that even a word? LOL) will help me get off my butt and do something. I want to lose weight for our family trip to Florida. Hubby has to lose 25 pounds for AIT in August. That's another journey in itself. I've already been throuh one basic, AIT, and deployment for the National Guard. Now he's choosing to go Active Duty and I have to go throuh another AIT and possible deployment. It's a journey but the benefits are good. I actually think this is helping us with our marriage as well. Things were rough when he came home from Iraq, and I admit they were my fault, but things have been sooooo murch better now! It took counseling and alot of hard ass work to get back to our pre-deployment stage. Anywho that's enough for today....maybe I'll write again tomorrow. I signed up for mobile posting. Maybe that will help me to post more lol
