Random things

Just thought I should update this baby. I have been sick over the past 4 weeks off and on. Finally went to the Doc and he gave me an antibiotic which I am hoping will heal me and not create super bugs. But my hope is in God not the meds.

My clinical is totally whacked(at least from my perspective). We were suppose to be at RUH, but with the Norwalk walking aroud we were transferred to a nursing home. It was an alright experience. PRAYER REQUEST: I need to know the right questions to ask my prof so I understand what she wants and then the ability to retain that info. I missed one day this week and slept for all of it minus 4-6 hours of 24. I am considerering talking to our clinical placement person and seeing if I can do another medicine rotation if this one continues as it is. I want to feel confident in my skills and right now I just do not have it.

So nice to have only 3 classes, but I struggle with doing my readings. I did a pharmacy one today and was greatly encouraged by the information I read, and that I learned!

Well we are losing two roomies, but I am super excited for them to fulfill the plans God has for them. Lindsay is moving to where it will be more beneficial for her. I know you are thinking what living at the Girl house is not beneficial. Yes it is true people sometimes God has greater plans and better plans than living with three of his fabulous daughters. Goldie is moving on to more responsible pastures. We are sad and excited for her. We have peace in all of this that God will either move us or bring us the right roomies.

Friends and Church
They are one in the same. Roxane and I have committed to praying on Friday nights for the lost and wandering sheep. Others have joined us and it is amazing to see the unity that we have. One person will speak a scripture and another testify to what they have said in that they were just thinking it or they had read the same scripture earlier. Also one will feel that a certain action should be taken and another will have it in their heart about the same. It is a very exciting time people.

Well that is my life in a nutshell. Thanks for all your prayers.

Exciting News!

I am having great days. I am not freading (combination of frettting and dreading) my clinical like I did last semester. I miss my group, but I have made two great buddies who are both Christians. One went to Bethany and the other CMU. How cool is that! God is reviving me bit by bit and I am beginning to feel like my new self. The one who desires more to do Yahweh's will than her own. The one who doesn't care what people think, but cares deeply that they know about relationship with Him. Yay! He is also doing some other stuff. hee hee hee.

Hey sister dear call me if I don't call you soon!

Confessions of a Princess

I am very excited for this coming week and very scared all at the same time. I will be starting my second round of clinical. I love doing clinical and I love learning. I love everything about it except for how long it takes me to collect data. We have 2.5 hours on Tuesday to collect our pt. info, then we work 8.5 hours on the wed/ thurs. We are expected to be able to competently care for 2 pts. by the end of this clinical. This doesn't seem as though it should be difficult, but because we are students we have to wait for our prof before we can do a lot of our care. I hope that I can show my prof this round that I am capable, so I will be able to do stuff without direct supervision.

I would like to be an influencer of my circumstances and surroundings of the conversations and attidudes of my peers/friends. The plan is to inquire of the LORD before I speak or act. This will recquire much patience(not a great quality of my life) and silence(better than patience but difficult when annoyed). So there you have it. TIme for me to put my plans in actio. Ciao!
