I can't believe week has gone by since my last post. It was a busy week as usual. Here are a few snipets. No, I did not go off and join the circus! These are the tents in the hospital parking lot where we had our annual summer lunch picnic. The hospital gives us a free picnic lunch every August. I didn't have my camera with me so Jack dropped it off for me. I had already eaten so no pics of food, or people. I just snapped the cool looking tents that I thought would look great here at home..I have tent envy!
Thursday we had our woman's meeting at Church. The Relief Society asked us to bring 3 things in a bag that would give a story of us. Since we are getting to know the newest members better it was a fun discovery. I found out things about people I thought I knew well. It was very fun. Here was Deb looking wistful as we tried to guess what she had brought. I found out we have many artists, writers, and even a black belt in karate!
When it was my turn of course I had my camera! I love how we react when getting snapped. Just look at the young lady in the back with her hands over her face. Why are we so sensitive? Well, if you're like me you don't like the "true" image that is reflected...every winkle, bulge, double chin and any imperfection shows up. I used to really be camera shy. But now I realize this is me and I don't want to go through life without anyone knowing I was even here! I don't want pics of my family not to include me. I'll still think in my brain that I'm good to go..but when I see the snapshot I will still smile and think that I'm really OK....sort of. Ha!
I've been taking photos all year at work to put together for a video I'm doing for operating room nurse week in November. Everyone has been wondering why I'm always clicking a pic here and there. Many times they are very camera shy. I think they will be surprised at the moments I've captured. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we do love our jobs! But a work pic without this pic would be incomplete. The almighty "locker room" shot. We have the smallest locker room ever. It even has two bathroom stalls in there! We have to dress in hospital laundered scrubs so we all cram in there in the morning trying to dress without knocking the person across from your locker into theirs! Fun times! We are not shy people either!
Can you tell Donna's locker from mine? Everyone has their most valuable possessions featured on the front...pics of family and pets!
No video about my workplace would be complete without a shot of what goes on after the patient leaves for recovery. Yes, those tables, lights and floors all need cleaned. Each and every time we all pitch in and help. I always say that the mop has a universal handle..it fits everyone's hands! We've even had a Doc or two grab one and mop up. Thanks Rhonda for not being camera shy!
Now here is someone not camera shy. Dr. B is always commenting about my blogging and challenging me to include him. No problem...you ask, I snap! Is this your best side?
Nah, I think this is his best side..wouldn't you want him to fix your knees..hips...shoulders...? You name the bone, he can fix it or replace it! We are very lucky to have such a good orthopod here in our small hospital. (His partner is very good too) We are rated one of the top hospitals in Ohio in joint replacement. No brag...just fact!
