The End..of the week

Yes, it's the most beloved day of the week. Friday. It's been a crazy busy week. Today is no exception. When you see this line up you either join in, hop in front of the line, or take a pic to blog about it.
Yes, we work hard here...to prove it here are two hard working nurses leaning against the crash cart obviously engaged in a very technical conversation.
This pic reminds me of the Sesame Street song..."one of these things does not belong here"...can you guess? It's brown. We're blue. He's fixing something for us so we let him stay.
Today was Dr. B's 40th birthday...he's just a baby! We had a carry in lunch. Have you ever seen so many crock pots in your life? There are many great cooks who disguise themselves as nurses! Food was delish and I know he liked it. He liked it so much that after his last case he injected both my knees with cortisone to celebrate. I only winced, jumped a little and didn't even cry! Hmmm, I wonder what he'll do to me on his 50th?
This lovely cheese tray was sent by Donna's (starkeyhollow) husband to thank us for, as he put it, our friendly help in giving him pain. The knee will heal and you will forget the pain Larry. That's the same bull they told me when I had my kids...liars. Hey, thanks for the cheese tray though!
October is half over and I would like to take a moment to pause and remember that it's also breast cancer awareness month. Here in surgery we honor that in our own special way. We wear pink gloves all month and also these cute masks are available. If you make the pic bigger you will see the little pink ribbons on the mask...also you will see the wrinkles on my face. Those were not handed out, I earned them all by myself... with a lot of help from my children.

What a fun crew you all look like. And that line-up of crock-pots is awesome. It's a wonder the electrical points held up!

Nurses are totally awesome! Contrary to what your photos show, they are the hardest working group of people on the planet!

My dad was in and out of the emergency room when he had alzheimers and a heart condition, and as I sat for hours in his room I would be the fly on the wall listening to the nurses interacting. They were wonderful to me, and obviously had a good working rapport (at least when out from behind closed doors.)

It looks like you have a good group of people there, and I think it's great that you have these little get-togethers and celebrations. Thanks for letting us look in the door!

It's fun to have such a nuturing bunch of co-workers. I might have to bring the massage line to Osborn! I didn't see any wrinkles either! Thanks for always bringing a smile to my face.
