stuff......

So I thought I would post a quick update for anyone who reads my blog....hehe!

First of all, congrats to Angie and Rush on the birth of baby Coles, 7#13oz and adorable! We all predicted a boy! I knew there would be a positive aspect to moonlighting in the newborn nursery over the weekend!


Sunday night, Patrick and I had a great time with Jess, Zach, Heather and Jason at Saskatoon! We all shared the sampler appetizer which included venison, buffalo and emu. Yes, emu- sort of like an ostrich. We also got alligator tail, which was new experience for me, but really just tasted sort of like chicken. I'm not sure if I will be able to try it again though....the whole idea of eating alligator is sort of skeeving me out now that I'm thinking about it...

Of course Jason and Patrick both had to continue the wild game adventure for their entree...the had the Kangaroo Steak. Yes, real Kangaroo. And I'm embarassed to admit I tried it. It was ok. My flaming salmon was delish as usual!


I'm now in my 4th month of second year back in the Peds ER.

We're staying busy in there....i can tell winter is coming....

Last night I had a woman who was upset about waiting....She said that her child was the "sickest in here" . Ma'am , I'm sorry but I think that your 7 month old's diaper rash isn't really more critical than the 6 year old in a severe asthma exacerbation with 02 sat of 85% following an hour long aerosol....or the 12 year old with a badly displaced ankle fracture compromising vascular supply...or the 4 year old bleeding post surgery with BP 70/40.....

Your dinner sounded great, although my pregger self was not up to the description. I think this was the first in a long time that I felt sick from reading about what someone had for dinner, lol. That momma with the diaper rash baby must have been crazy or it must have been some terrible diaper rash?lol, Have a great week!
