A Nurse With Attitude

Where Dark Cynical Humor, Nursing Issues, and Politics Seem to Merge

Nope, not bullet proof

 

Bonnie early years

 

Nurse Bonnie… the early years

 

 

Just when I’m feeling great, getting back into shape, starting to feel my oats once again, mortality smacks me in the face.  I haven’t had the flu or even a cold in… like ten years.  The last time I’ve had the flu, I was in the tenth grade.  I’ve never had a flu shot in my life. So with a record like this, I guess if you laugh at the devil, eventually  you’ll get your due.   Last Friday night, I got sick with the flu.  It tells me, once again, that I’m not bullet proof.  Maybe at fifty years of age, my immunities aren’t what they use to be.  Maybe, some  of the new medications has left me venerable.  Maybe I’ve been just really lucky for the last 25 years.

I went to the  clinic for some Tamiflu.  She also gave me a Rx for a inhaler,  and some cough syrup.  My lovely spouse gave her best nursing care for the last three days.  Lets just say, I’m up to at least 70% normal and I’m ready to go back to work.

 

I haven’t written in a few days.  I haven’t been sick with fever in many years.  It seems that my eyes can’t focus enough to type (or proof for that matter) with anything over 100.8 F.
