Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

I've only heard of the first one. Not sure how to pronounce most of them ;o)

impworks said...

In 25 weeks of TTing thats got to be the first list of medications given at work I've seen.

Interesting TT :-)

madamspud169 said...

I've never even heard of most of these!
Do you also have to give insulin injections & rub in skin creams and that or is that for the mothers only? What about nappy changes?

Tink said...

I don't know any of them and I'm glad with that! :-)
My TT shares Thirteen (quotes from) lyrics by Robbie Williams.

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Yikes, I have no idea what these medicines are for, but they sound terrible! Happy TT!

WorksForMom said...

I only heard of the first one too. I don't know if that is god or bad . . .

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Wow! Strong medicines I should say for a pediatric ward.
Thanks for the visit.

Judy Callarman said...

Interesting--foreign-sounding!

I like your title about breaths--I agree.

MissMeliss said...

Interesting list - I've heard of a bunch of them. Definitely among the most original lists I've seen for TT

Joyful Days said...

Gracious Amy, those are some intense meds!!

My nephew was on Phenobarbital for the first 18 months of his life & then weaned off. That was amazing!

Have a super day!

Ummm...I know I have taken some of these, at least the Ampacillin.

Gail Martin said...

You have a tough job. There must be times when it is heart breaking.

Thanks for visiting my TT!

I've never even heard of most of them. I don't know what we would do without nurses to keep track of this stuff for the rest of us!

And thanks for your comment on my own Thursday 13 on Famous People I've Met. Here's the URL so you can post a link: http:/petrini1.livejournal.com

It's so not poetry!

Lesley said...

Wow! I've only ever heard of one of those...

Cindy Swanson said...

Amy, I think your work is awesome! Nurses are wonderful indeed. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my TT.

Marsha said...

I have never heard of any of them, and for that I feel blessed.

Open Grove Claudia said...

Unbelievable. Those are really the biggies of medications. Do you have to do med counts? Lock downs? All that stuff??

erin said...

Wow, I'm impressed you can even spell half of those! :)

Norma said...

I knew 3! You've got an incredibly important job!

Thanks for stopping by my 13 tips for dads.

TeaMouse said...

Well there are two for sure I can't take, I am allergic to penicillin. Interesting list. I don't know what most of them are for.

FRIGGA said...

I hope there's not a quiz later - not only can I NOT spell any of them, I doubt I could even say any of them! Happy TT13 :P

InsertWittyBlogHere said...

Thanks for visiting my TT today! :-)

J. Lynne said...

Well, I take one of those. I won't say which. ;)

Qtpies7 said...

Whew! nasty, strong stuff! I hated giving out meds to my patients because I knew that even though it helped some bad stuff, it also hurt them in other ways. It was hard.

Michael Schurmann said...

You have a stressful, but rewarding job!

Thanks for stopping by

Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

Yow! I think I've only heard of the first one also.

Happy Thursday!

Sword Girl said...

The only one I think I've heard of is Klonopin. It sounds like an intense job!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Wow, I know a couple and that's about it. Have a great TT. :)

Baba/night owl said...

Hi Amy, I worked on a Pediatric floor for about 6 months and did not like giving meds to kids.I switched to OB and took care of Moms and babies.This was my home for over 30 years..I praise you for doing a great job with your kids at work. Baba

Marilyn said...

What is Keppra? I like the way it sounds...

Titania Starlight said...

I recognize a lot of those. I worked in the mental health field. I actually take lamictal for my seizures. I tried Topamax which also is called dopeamax in our field. I had to stop it, my IQ dropped horribly and it didn't help my seizures. I wonder who can take it? I have heard a lot of people can't becaase of the bad side effects.

Thank you for stopping by my T13. :o)

Its great to be somebody that can help....I am an Occupational Therapist and love every second of it!
