I want to thank you so much for commenting on my recent BLOG that was featured here at Spark People. If in any way I have been able to inspire or motivate you, then I am most pleased. Since reaching my goal weight I have made it a goal to help as many others as I can with their goals to lose weight and get fit. For me, making new goals (challenges) is what keeps me accountable, maintaining and healthy. It feels awesome! Many thanks again for your kind words and interest in my BLOG.
The kerosene patient was really bad. The old codger was pretty tough though and stoic. The doctor was more shook up than the patient and could barely keep it together as he had to figure out what to do about it. Who you gonna call? LOL. When we got in the hallway the doctor was like OMG!!! This is challenging enough to deal with without having the patient set himself on fire afterwards. Not much you can say other than commiserate. Thank God for specialists because there were times that it took a group of really intelligent physicians to decide how to proceed and time is of the essence in matters like this.
Speaking of TMI, some people on sparkpeople amaze me. Sometimes I will see a blog where people are talking about the most intimate things. As a nurse I have heard it all but social forums are not the place to post about your potential venereal diseases and bowel habits. Good grief.
I hate when I have computer trouble. I hate the latest windows whatever too and am using my old vista computer.
OMG - the part about the toes is so gross! I have had ignorant patients tell me that they let their dog lick their wound and I had to tell them bad idea for them and the dog. We are a rural area and get some really uneducated people in the hospital. One farmer got his groin and genitals caught it some farm equipment and he poured kerosene on it to "cauterize it". OMG!! When the E.R. doctor came in he said, "What is that smell?????" I told him it was kerosene and he asked me if farm machinery used kerosene and I told him not that I knew of - that the man had poured it on himself after the accident. Unreal.
The last I talked to Ian he was tired but he is always tired as he always works a minimum of 48 hours a week. He has trouble finding employees as it is minimum wage and part time.
Sounds like a good schedule. I wouldn't worry about it. If they wanted something different they should have spoken up like you did.
I'm totally jealous of your 60 degree days! Another blizzard on it's way & I am ready for spring!!! I do love the snow, but when storms hit one after another, they lose some of their awesomeness!!! Have a great week :)
Hi. Go to "Report" then "Weight And Other Reports" then "Spark Summary Calendar". If you have been logging food intake and exercise, it now is there in summary form, and if your calories are within range, you get a gold star! Hey, I don't mind a return to kindergarten. When they got rid of that, apparently there was a groundswell and they brought back the stars.
Check it out.
Now,the planner I use as a reminder of my weekly weigh-in goals. Where I hope to be and then noting the actual weight. SP will send you an email reminder if you like. I had found it helpful in the past. Perhaps you won't since it just might annoy you, if your expectations are not met.
