Friday Ramblings

The first order of business is to tell you to check out my new blog design. In case you didn't notice, it is now BEEEEAUUUTIFUL! And it's all thanks to The Mombabe. <~check it out, she also taught me how to do THAT. She ROCKS!
Second order of business is this. I'm putting on full-body armour before I post this. I fear retribution. But, this, folks, is my weather forecast for Saturday.
Sunny - High of 72* - Low of 52*
I know it's NASTY in a lot of places.....but we are going to have one GORGEOUS weekend here!
And to update from yesterday's post......the 29 year old patient has passed away. Her wonderful family donated her organs, and she saved FIVE lives tonight. The nurses were just weeping before they took her down.....it was so emotional and touching. Now we have a picture of her and her son hanging up in the unit, and every time I walk past it, I choke up. But on a brighter note, the 27 year old patient that came in last night, is doing VERY well. Modern medicine is a wonderful and amazing thing. We don't save them all, but we try hard. I love my job.
