The Secret Work of Nurses

Labor and Delivery is not a piece of cake like what the TV portrays it. It’s not always happy endings  unfortunately. It has some of it’s own stresses. I always tell my friends that when “the shit hits the fan… it hits the fan hard”. You have to think fast. You go from 0 to 60 mph in ten seconds.

I remember one day, I had to do a double set up in the OR for a twin delivery. I remember the first baby coming out fine then the second baby’s heart rate fell. The attending made an executive decision to do a STAT and we got baby out in a minute or two. Seriously, I had no time to think. My body was reacting faster than my brain. Next thing you know, baby was out to NICU. Imagine, we manage to get a mother from the pushing position to the OR table, intubated, OR table prepped, foley in, splash, incision, baby out in one to two minutes. It was crazy but we did it. 

A couple months ago, I would come home exhausted stressing about work to the point where I lost a lot of weight. Now, I have a good foundation. 

People tell me “why do you spend so much on Crossfit?”
I wanted to tell my friend something along these lines but it’s the last line that I really wanted to emphasize

Something is always bound to go wrong on a trip.

I had another outfit planned, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I was unable to wear the dress I bought for this day. I had to come up with a backup plan. Good thing I didn’t wear what I did because in the morning it was freezing and the lawn was wet, so I had to wear socks and then I left my shoes at home -__-“

Anyhoo, these are just some unedited outtakes from the shoot while my brother was testing out the flash.

If you’re always questioning and allowing yourself to be humble enough to take your licks and accept the idea that your work can always be improved, then you’re much more inclined to learn from other people’s projects and become better.

Sorry Tumblr, I haven’t been on this thing in a couple of weeks. I have been very busy with both of my jobs. Both are full-time jobs. 8 more months until I get promoted to a better positions on days though. You won’t be as neglected! (;

Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.
