Hasta Luego

To all my faithful readers... I can't imagine there are many of you left out there.

Just a quick hello and "see you later" (not exactly goodbye).

Blogging is just not happening in the midst of my busy life right now, and I'm "giving up" on it for now.

I appreciate all the thoughts, feedback, and smiles you've provided. I hope to check in on your blogs when I get a chance... you've always been a source of inspiration and encouragement.

So, for now, hasta luego!

Whelp, it's understandable, but too bad that blogging doesn't fit in your life right now. I'm a student nurse and happen to stumble across your blog a couple months ago. I've enjoyed reading what "real nursing" is like from your perspective and have learned a bit too. So I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to share stories about your day, vent, or write whatever came to mind. Feel free to write a new entry here and there whenever the mood strikes! Best of luck with your career!

Alas then, a pair of star crossed bloggers: a blogging patient, recently having begun his blog; a nurse - evanescent, iridescent, quixotic, naturally loquacious and yet now lapsed into the silence of all cyberspace.

I take up then, the virtual and metaphorical dagger; or am I the one that drinks the poison? I forget the correct gender roles on this one Must be the dagger, it would hurt more and be the manlier way to go about it...

Hi,

Good luck to you. When you come back, perhaps you will consider this. I was wondering if you'd be interested in posting any articles from the Nursezone.com website. There are lots of relevant articles for todays nurse. The great news is that using nursezone content on your site is no cost. We'd just like to have a link back to our site for those of your bloggers interested in finding a community of nurses, CE opportunities, travel nursing and other relevant nurse aids. A partial example of a nursing article is below:

Nurse Overcomes Cancer—Twice—to Provide Care to Others

By Nancy Deutsch, RN, contributor

Many people yearn to make nursing their career, but few have to battle the odds like Valerie Bush.

The Independence, Kentucky, woman, who was a medical technician for six years and a nurse’s aide “on and off forever,” waited until her children were raised to return to nursing school. When she finally entered the Gateway Community and Technical College, it was unbelievably stressful. Not only was the single mother dealing with her course work, but her father died, and her youngest daughter was dealing with medical problems, including bipolar disease.

Bush, now 42 years old, was “disgustingly healthy when I started” school in 2004, but quite overweight, and she started to lose a lot of the extra girth.

“I lost massive amounts of weight in just a few months,” she recalled. “I was a pretty big girl. I lost 100 pounds.”

At first, Bush chalked up the weight loss and constant belching to stress, but when she shed all the weight, she found a lump in her breast. “I decided to see a doctor over break.”

Bush was diagnosed with DCIS, and beneath that, metastatic breast cancer.

“I lost everything in a week,” Bush said. The diagnosis sent her daughter off the deep end, upset her boyfriend, and meant she had to stop the classes she had waited so long to take.

“As a nurse, you think you know what a cancer diagnosis entails,” she said. “But you don’t. It affects every single thing in your life.” … (more article to come)
