(Mom says don't look at my nails. I give her a hard time about them and she will soon"hogtie" me to get them done..She also says I am not finished being groomed. So I guess I will be one of these days when she gets done playing around. Would somebody get her a life please?)
I am at last allowed to begin...
Here is what Scooter did most of the weekend. Most of the time all you could see was the throw covering him up. Mom has quite a few of those pics. We should play "where's Scooter" like they used to play "where's Waldo" with those pictures. hah

Mom made it to the store! So we won't starve after all. Thanks for the offers of sharing your foodables!! (hmmm-mom got a picture of the moon falling out of the sky.....:)
Mom said our human cousin-our sis's daughter-is coming to spend the weekend with us!!(Mom thought about this and says it is our niece she thinks. Is that right?) We LOVE, LOVE her and haven't seen her for the longest time. I think over a month. So Mom says since we will be playing with our little girl, we probably will take this weekend away from the puter and relax and have FUN!!! Mom is going to try to start using her new camera more. So maybe she'll actually learn how to use it!!
Mom also said we have a meme to do from our kitty friends the Meezers and we'll do that after the weeknd.
Deetzy's Mom is having surgery today, so keep your paws crossed for her. We know she will be getting better the soonest!
Y'all have a great weekend!

We hope that we can have a somewhat interesting, or at least regular, blog for y'all to look at soon. Life sure can get crazy-Mom says anyhow.
pee ess HU? What Mom??? NO. I have been doing what I do all the time. See? Just watching for those squirrels. Why, no, I have not been gone. I really do NOT know what yo are talking about. You were so tired that night, you let me out and forgot to bring me back in til the next day... Let me get you a nice soothing bath drawn. You are imagining things..
HUH? Well, of course Scooter is here. He's in the igloo taking a nap. C'mon, I'll use bubble bath and everything. (whew)

Sorry about the quality of this photo. (Before 13:45 my time-1:45 pm, I had a pic of Daddy and James from the old camera. DUH. I tried and tried with the new one and tho it is not great you can see my son and Dad's face. Made me cry....)

Mom has worked just about every floor in the hospital.(Not here) ED-better known as ER and ICU were specialties but she also "floated" when needed. (The one she could not take was NICU or OB. She says the highest of highs and lowest of lows are there. She tips her hat to those that can take it. Just an aside and not germaine to this post at all...)
Ok, bear with me-Mom thinks this is really IMPORTANT for folks to know. The point of my filling you in on the above is ,that while Mom loved her job and most do, there are two reasons she stays with a hospitalized loved one. One is nurses, except in very few instances, are overburdened. To cut costs, fewer RNs are on the floor. (I am in no way knocking LPNs) It is just that by most state laws, LPNs are not allowed to do certain things-ie IV meds, etc. Sooo-the one or maybe two RNs on the floor are resposible for more than the patients assigned directly to them for total care. They are ultimately responsible for all the patients their LPNs are assigned to. This makes for not only burn out, but it can be near impossible to get to your patient in a timely manner no matter how hard you try. Some hospitals have gone to different sorts of "techs". Don't get Mom started on that. She loved her good NAs(nurse's aides) that helped. She disagrees with giving more and more over to techs. MED techs (dispense medicine and are becoming abundant) are a sore spot. Oh, and guess where the buck stops again? Yep, the RN. All to save money.
The second is that unfortunately, like any other profession, there are lousy nurses. Some are lousy because they never really had what it takes to be a nurse. Some because of burnout have just given up except on what they absolutely must do to stay employed. (It doesn't help they don't get paid enough. Ask just about any nurse this. Do you have mandatory overtime? If you do not, and even if you do, do you request overtime, volunteer when someone is needed to help your income? She doesn't have national statistics, but where she has worked the answer to both is YES in the majority. They do have a law that you cannot work 2 12's back to back and Mom has seen that broken in one of the hospitals. You want someone that has been up for over 24 hrs?? And they do not get naps like interns. They shut their eyes and they are fired.)
She always says folks don't realize how well RNs are trained. They used to be the doc's handmaidens. Now, that is not the case. More than one doc used to talk to Mom about cases. After all, she spent 12 hours with them. But of course, some did not. The newer docs are better about this.
Good grief, I have heard Mom talk about this so many times she has got me on her soapbox. So she stays to advocate and make sure everything gets done right. She is not frequently very popular!! LOL LOL
By the way, you thought I was longwinded on the above subject, you should see how long MOM can go on....Sorry, (if you read this far), for boring you. I have been listening to Mom go on and on about it lately!
pee ess Mom said to say that there are LPNs out there who have been nurses a long time and she would trust more than some of the RN's she has seen. Whew. I nearly missed that!

Neither one of us has ever really been to an all dog(and kitty and hammy) party. I learned alot during the party. One thing was learning that sipping on a smoothie slowly gives one a pleasant buzz!!! And that I need to work on my flirting skills. I think I learned quite a bit from various girls there! I will be working on my image in the upcoming weeks. One can be a hard working girl AND have fun and enjoy the fellas!, after all!!
Scooter and I both have jet lag at this point. Later all!! I'll be having pleasant dreams about our wonderful weekend.
