      Hey y'all what's up? 

      Things have calmed down considerably for me. We had 2 fosters with us for a long while. In January, we were asked to provide respite care (temporary foster care) for an 8yo girl. The home she was in was being investigated. She wasn't in our "preferred" age range or whatever but we live 10 minutes from her school and have girls the same age. Made sense at the time. Well, that turned into 6 months. 

      O.o

      When cps started investigating the other home, she and her 2yo brother were separated. They had been in foster care almost a year and had always stayed together. We were her 6th foster home, and his 7th. So at the end of April, our agency started making roundabout threats to move her before the end of the school year if we didn't take him. Thinking it was best for her to finish out the year at her current school, we agreed to take him. Supposedly it was going to be temporary. Of course, it wasn't.

      Y'all I only lasted 2 months with 5 kids. It was exhausting. The boy was a hot mess. I don't know what was going on with him but it was out of my league. He was biting Junebug. He bit me a couple of times too. He was a perfect angel for Mr. Nurse though. As for the girl, she had her own problems, which were frustrating to deal with. And Lordy the grocery bill! He got WIC but it barely covered a week of meals for him. I couldn't walk out of Walmart without dropping at least $300. And laundry....ooh don't get me started. 

      Anyway, they were moved in July. I've been enjoying the break and welcoming the return of my sanity.

    • Here we go

      1 year ago

      nurse

      Started those foster-adopt classes on Monday. Man, people are fucking SICK. Yes, all my years in the ER have taught me this well. Yes, I still have bad moments, breakdowns if you will, about the things I saw when certain cases were brought in. Not many mind you, as I did not work at County, or a pediatric hospital, thankfully. (As hard as it was for me, thinking of how hard it was for them is so, soooo much worse and frequently contributes to my nightmares). I am such a softie for kids. And a crier. And I don't want to have nightmares every night. But here we go! As much as seeing their pain might hurt me, I can't bear the thought of sitting on my ass doing nothing to ease the suffering of the most vulnerable in my community....especially when we want to adopt, eventually. Texas leads the nation in child abuse. And you may have heard in the news, Texas lost a HUGE lawsuit regarding its mismanagement of the foster care system. It's fairly recent so the improvements are still forthcoming.

      We have decided to only accept kids under age 3, because it is important to us to maintain birth order...my youngest is 3.....and to hopefully prevent my kids from becoming victims themselves. Also kids who are not terribly medically fragile......some things are fine but I still have 3 other kids to raise (one of whom has a couple of special needs). I need to have something to give them too.


      So please.....wish us luck. Send us your prayers. And please keep abused children in your heart and prayers every day. <3

      OK so y'all already know I'm a nurse. I can't recall telling y'all that I'm a super part time hospice nurse. Anyway, yeah. So, I'm pretty new to this particular field. I just performed my first pronouncement 2 days ago and now I'm sitting here reflecting on the experience over a glass(es) of wine. Early 50s with a rare genetic illness. The pronouncement part in itself went smoothly but I'm just dumbstruck over the in-laws and how absolutely wheels off they are being to the poor widow and accusing her of all sorts of shit. There's not really any money involved either. They are just bat shit crazy.

      So....that's what's on my mind. Oh and paperwork. LAWD the paperwork!!

      I was pretty gutted about what happened in Dallas last week. I just don't understand. I thought we were better than this.

      But now that the world has seen the bravery of DPD and I'm proud. There they were guarding a group who was protesting their kind and some asshole started shooting at them because of their skin.

      I'm just so sick of this! Get along already!!!!

      My mommy, who is in town right now, told me what happened. So sickening. So, Cunty McBitchBoy decides to shoot up a club where a bunch of people are hanging out and enjoying their freedom?

      You know what....gay people are not the evil in society. All they are is a group of people who have been as persecuted as the Jews since time began. The evil in our society is the fuckwits who think atrocities like this are justified, good, cleansing.


      And already, there are people ranting to the rafters about Moar Gun Controlz!!! Even a fellow medical professional I respected. Sigh.


      Ya know....buying my own private island is sounding more and more like a sound investment in my mental health.

      on my last birthday, my present was a weekend in a hotel all.by.myself. I planned on locking my phone in the car and staying in the tub all weekend reading and drinking wine.

      And I'm sure you know it hasn't happened yet, right?

      Instead, next month, I'm flying to San Diego to spend a weekend with my BEST FRIEND EVER! Just booked my flight. I am so excited!

      Rehab is doing well. I still have a fair amount of swelling and soreness in the left leg. Right leg is muscle weak but doing better. I really did myself in the last two 70F days by being outside and overdoing things. PT tells me I am right on track and he is happy with my progress

Oh, and I should mention that we have around 18" of snow on the ground with 20-30mph wind gusts.Great time to stay home, sitting in the lazy boy with dogs in the lap, a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.

      I can totally understand the hesitation, HOWEVER, I do not understand that hesitation when you SIGNED UP to go. That is the reason I dont jump out of perfectly good aircraft. Have your fun, it aint my cup o tea. :)


      The very worst part is the wait between the last of the checks and the command, "Green light, GOOOO!" That wait is enough to unnerve anyone. It's terrifying. I get dry mouth and my heart races. That's the time where you start to dwell on the multitude of things that can go wrong in the next 5 minutes that will kill you deader than dead. Jumping out of a C-130 at night with a combat load while hundreds of other guys are doing the other thing? It's a giant middle finger, waved in Death's face. If you're not a bit nervous, you're either ignorant or dumb.

      That said, I've never, never hesitated to jump when the command came down.
