T’was the week before Christmas
& all through the floor,
The Lasix was filling the foley’s galore.
Stockings were worn, to prevent emboli,
They came in two sizes: knee, and thigh-high.

My mother taught me many lessons in life, but most of them I didn’t even realize I had learned until after she passed aware. I’m going to talk about just a few of these lessons. If she were sitting right next to me now, I would love to hear the words “I told you so,” come out of her mouth. She’s earned it.
With St Patrick’s Day on the horizon, and visions green beer dancing in the heads of many, it is important that you don’t forget yourself in the heat of the moment.

If you haven’t already lost yourself in the the retail therapy that is Think Geek, you’ve really been missing out. I myself have spent hours browsing the oddities that exist and pining for some of the cooler items of geekery.

Black Friday is sort of like living in gated community. You love it or you hate it. You either embrace it for it’s value, take advantage of all the benefits, and utilize your social skills to make the best of the situation, or your get ran over by a cart (shopping or golf).

GIANTmicrobes take microscopic, sometimes scary bacteria and body parts and blow them up into a larger than GIANT versions of thier scientific selves. They’re a fun learning aid and cute way to incorproate a little more scient into your life.
As a nurse I spend a large amount of my time attempting to ward off these nasty little boogers, but when you make the cute and cuddly, they become downright charming. I really like the idea of using these in children’s hospitals to teach immune compromised children about their illnesses. Sick kids have a hard enough road to face without fearing what their bodies are facing. The empowerment that having their very own pet germs (GIANTmicrobes) would surely be motivational to any child or adult battling illness.
Hello, my name is The Nerdy Nurse, and I once had a smelly fridge.
Despite increased frequency of cleanings, the baking soda trick, and frequent purging of contents, there just always seemed to be a funk lingering in there.
But fear not fellow smelly fridge owners! Technology has progressed and we have finally arrived at a precipice in anti-stinky ice boxes. The time has come to just say no to a stinky fridge. Thanks to Oransi, and their Ionic Fridge Air Purifier, you never have to be the victim of funky food again.
