Referrals Are Here!


Referrals are coming in today after a long wait for many lucky people. A lot of young uns too!! While I rejoice for all the newly expectant parents, I can't help feeling a little jealous as well. So what better way to boost my spirits???? I rode the ZAMBUKA (no idea how it's spelled?) at work today. At the hospital I work at we have a little man that rides around the halls on a Zambuca and polishes all the hallway floors. He never comes in our unit because the machine is pretty loud. I have always secretly thought his job looked like fun and casually mentioned to a coworker buddy at work last Friday that I would love to circle our unit (the ICU) in it. She thought that was hilarious and said lets see if you can. First she called our Nurse Manager and asked her if there was any policy that would not let me ride it. Our Nurse Manager replied, (to her) " Not as far as I know. You just need to go and knock the little man off that drives it and steal his keys." (Jokingly of course!!) We laughed and went back to work. Over the weekend that same coworker buddy decided that instead of Zambuca Jacking the little man she would just ask him. Long story short he showed up today and let me ride. I circled our unit twice the second time one handed. And it was fun I must say and I am willing to bet that there are others out there that also secretly would have liked to ride.

Oh, I am so jealous. We did gurney races, chair races and some others I won't reveal but this tops them all. Never doubt what a critical care rn can come up with when she is bored. Love you, mom

Once the word gets out, you'll be having races with the other units in no time! =)
