Friend to Friend via text on a Wednesday morning

Today I had an appointment to have two ganglions removed from the side of my foot, wish there was a prettier,sexier word for that

So to end a gross story I had sent my friend Deb a text while waiting my turn in the doctor’s office and this is the conversation that ensued:

Anyone who knows me by now knows I am a toughy well kinda and please remember while reading both Deb and I are mothers and very intelligent people and were both sober during our texting ppppffffftttt who am I trying to kid? Deb had already polished of a bottle of cheap Rum. 🙂 kidding

me: Sigh all alone and scared 🙂

Deb: Aw you will be fine snookums.

Me: Sniff Sniff

Deb : Now no crying. You r a big girl now.

Me:  Almost my turn, Im freaking out a little tee hee

Deb:  Deep breaths. In through the nose out through the mouth

Me:  Doing it people r looking

Deb:  OMG you r funny

Me:  Will u write a obituarie for me if I don`t make it 🙂

Deb:  That would be fun.  Here lies Angela. Her life cut short by ganglions.  May she still be able to walk in the garden of Eden. Rest in peace.

The stupidity continued,  I sent her a text when I was out of the office and told her the side of my foot was frozen she just laughed and said she could step on my foot now and it wouldn’t hurt….oh these friends of mine absolutely exhausting!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

But I love them!

You’re a nurse ?!?

My oldest daughter is a PSW and works at a Long term Care facility, which my Dad also calls home,we are so lucky she is there with him.  All the nurses, PSWs, activity aids, dietary, physiotherapists, admin, housekeepers,the ladies in laundry and maintenance, hope I havent forgotten anyone….do a fantastic job everyday and enrich the lives of the people they care for, she sent this to me today:

I think this has been floating around on the internet for quite a while but I still wanted to share it, my daughter is Thing One haha and my poor Dad, they had a great Halloween!

A family member gave this to the nursing staff on the Birch/Maple wing today.. 🙂

About Nurses:
Somebody asked: “you’re a nurse?!? That’s cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. “How much do you make?” The nurse replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?” I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you’re scared. I can make you’re child breathe when they stop… I can make your father survive a heart attack. I can make myself get up at 5AM to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live. I work all day to save the lives of strangers. I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted. I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don’t just get sick monday thru Friday. Today, I might save your life. How much do I make? All I know is, I make a difference.
Repost not only if you are a nurse or you love a nurse, but most importantly, repost this is you respect our work.
