Theda Clark Birth Center

Wow, I’m not sure I slept a wink all night. I don’t think I was nervous, I just didn’t sleep. I checked the clock on my phone at least 5 times between midnight and 4:15am when the alarm went off. It actually didn’t feel all that early and I felt quite awake and quite ready for the day after a quick shower, banana and cup of tea. It took less time than I anticipated to get to the hospital, and less time than I anticipated to find the unit and be ready for report (05:03 for report at 05:30) it will take me a few days to get the timing all down so I don’t have to get up extra early but am getting to work in enough time that I don’t have to stress about getting there on time. I oriented with a fun energetic nurse and we had a very busy day. A little too busy to be conducive to learning the charting system well, but I think I got a good introduction and am hoping that I will feel pretty good about the flow of things by the end of the shift tomorrow. I was home a half hour late but a lot of ground was covered, and Chad had dinner ready when I pulled up with reports of a lot of math getting done today. They kids were all playing in the back yard with the neighbor kids and ran to greet me. After dinner they went back out. So far they like Wisconsin and think it reminds them of Oregon. We will see how they do with the cold weather as I hear that will start to hit by Halloween. I’m turning in early tonight and Eve and I are going to cuddle as we both really need some sleep.
Good night, thank you for your continued prayers and support.
