Is it only me or has everyone’s dashboard undergone a radical modification? I thought I was lost there for a minute.
Drug calculations, it’s not true, we don’t get the push if we fail, first time, just if we fail twice. That’s a relief! It’s all a question of remembering formulae apparently, what you want, what you’ve got times the volume, drip rates, number of drops to a ml and nano’s, I have never experienced nanos before. Then there is converting decimals to fractions to percentages, holy moly, me a dyspraxic and all (thank you cartside). Here’s a sample ” Adrenaline 1:10,000 is available on the resuscitaire. A baby needing resuscitating weighs approximately 3kg.The doctor has asked you to draw up 10mcgms/kg for him to administer. What volume of the drug would you prepare?” Answers below please.
Tomorrow Amy, Jamie and Louis are being baptised, I’m really not too sure how Amy will respond to having cold water poured over her head. As her favourite expletive is “For goodness sake”, said whilst standing with her hands on her hips, it could be quite comical. I am in the middle of decorating the cake at the moment, when finished I shall take a photo so then everyone can have a chuckle, I’m just taking a break as I am not a domestic goddess and I’m struggling not to lose my temper. Hubby is keeping out of my way, he still has vivid memories of an episode involving a fairy castle cake. I had spent hours making this cake, compete with turrets, and was not happy with my efforts. Poor man made the mistake of coming in from work and reassuring me by saying ‘ It’s not that bad’. I flipped. The cake was balanced on a kitchen stool, I raised a leg, caught the base of the cake board and my glorious creation flew upwards and then landed with a splat on the floor. I rushed past his gob-smacked figure, grabbing my car keys on the way, leapt into my little mini and drove off into the rush hour traffic. When I returned an hour later he had stuck it all back together, securing the turrets with cocktail sticks, I laughed…….until I cried. There will be no repeats of that behaviour, I don’t have a mini anymore!
