So you're probably wondering "WTF's dude, you just think you can disappear somewhere after not posting and crap? I'm freaking subscribed to your blog damn it!" Well let me tell you what the crap I've been doing for the past couple of days. I WARN YOU, SOME OF THE IMAGES SHOWN MIGHT GROSS YOU THE CRAP OUT.
Well for one, let be begin by saying that I am never going to pull another all-nighter again unless it is ABSOLUTELY necessary. Why? I had to emcee for a party for Stony Brook's Intervarsity Christian Fellowship's welcome party. I got back at 12 AM and then had to catch a train at 4am to go to a fishing trip. I felt like total crap. I couldn't stay awake and I legit took approximately 4 or 5, 10 minute naps as we were going from location to location to try to catch different fish (because you can't fish while the boat is moving).
I don't remember a time where I felt so crappy. Imagine midgets smacking my head around from the inside, while carrying 50 lbs on your back...Yeah if I could put it to words, that's how I would put it. On the bright side, I did catch a fish and I named him Ronald. I had to throw him back in because he was too small but it was all worth it!
(I kind of look like a lesbian in he photo)
Anyway, now to school stuff. So one of the biggest concerns I had coming to nursing school was cleaning poop. I learned today that cleaning turd is probably the least of my concerns. The things I've seen today are horrible. DISGUSTING. The stories I heard today from previous experiences were ATROCIOUS! So as a nurse I have to check the wounds to see if they need a change in gauze, etc. Well apparently there was a time where someone didn't check so long that by the time the nurse took off the bandage, there were MAGGOTS. FREAKING MAGGOTS IN THE WOUND...CHILLING THERE! If you don't know what maggots are, they are pretty much larva of flies (Click here if you want to see some gross pictures of em).
On top of all that gross stuff, my professors kept mentioning how I'd have to eventually put in Foley catheters on patients. I eventually decided to Google what that was and it's a freaking tube that goes into the tiny hole of the penis into the bladder for patients who can't pee. I am going to end up screwing up somehow and blood is going to spew everywhere from my patient's penis...I KNOW IT! Okay maybe not...and I hope my future patients don't end up reading this, I also hope that I never need a Foley catheter. If you can't imagine what it is yet because you're not creative enough, I have done you the favor of putting a diagram of what it is. I will leave you with THAT. PEACE!
