SOmeone asked me what type of nursing I did and what I have learned from it so I thought I would share it with you..
I am a pediatric nurse at Scottish Rite Hospital which is part of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. I work the night shift and have been there almost 7 years. I am usually in charge each night.
SO what type of floor is it, you ask? Well its called a cranio/facial floor and we do take care of patients who have had certain plastic surgeries like cleft lip/palate, other deformities, brain tumors, hydrocephalus, spina bifida,seizures, head injuries of all types and any other neuro issues like migraines and stuff. So I get to see a lot. I was able to take care of Baby Noor a few years ago, remember her?
What type of head injuries do we see the most? Trampolines accidents, kids in bouncy seats falling off tables and kids riding their bikes without helmets. Also, I can say that we will never own a pasta maker.
So that's it. That's what I do. A lot of the injuries have made me paranoid when I am in public and see kids without helmets but I never wore a helmet when I was a kid and see how I turned out?

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
