Okay, I'm back from across the great divide. Wow, I can't believe that you guys still check in. Thanks! I'm doing much better...believe it or not, I got out of the hospital on Friday, had the weekend to convalesce and then had to hit the floor running back to work by Monday. Because I'm 'new', HR pretty much told me that I would lose all my benefits if I don't return to work in 30 days. So back to work I go.
It was rough...I was super tired, but I'm happy to report that I survived, and the attack of nerves I had on the way to work faded away as soon as I got there. It's a good thing I love my job, if not, I would have really had it worse than it was.
On Monday, I was the lunch/break relief nurse, which pretty means I was the scut worker. I think it was apt for my first day back, no patients, no assignment, just pitching in to help everyone out. Tuesday I did get an assignment, but by then, my mojo was back. Nursing is truly like riding a bike...lol.
