This week I was dispatched to a “injury at work” call. A case of soda fell 6 inches to the patients shoulder and she called 911. This is what we refer to as a “get my lawyer” call in EMS. Since there was a complaint of neck/back pain the patient got a backboard. This was total bs because she stated she was bleeding but when we went to look she said she “cleaned it up” and there was no mark…uh huh!

Anyway due to the patient’s weight it took 6 people to move her from the EMS stretcher to the hospital bed. In the process my finger got stuck between the backboard and oxygen regulator. More specifically, there is a little metal port that sticks out on the regulator and that’s what got my finger. This resulted in immediate swelling and extreme pain!

Two days later, this is what it looks like…



Work sent me to the doctor and after an X-ray the doctor said, “The swelling is too bad to determine if there is a fracture but there is definitely injury to the joint.” FML! No lifting of more than 3lbs with my hand and no gripping anything!! Oh and stuck in this stupid splint for a week while it’s 100 degrees outside and my pool is screaming my name!! And at least a week off work, great because it’s the job I’m going through hell in, bad because I’m freaking bored!!!!!!


My Totally Awesome Man!

This blog was created to talk about my relationship with a man who just happens to be a little bit older than me. He is my rock. He’s making my life so much better. He loves me so much and just adores me. He’s done so much for me and I love being with him! Right now I’m missing my awesome man. He’s stuck at work. I had a dentist appointment today and so far he has taken me to all these appointments. I have horrible teeth, I take after my parents and grandparents. I was ruined from the beginning. I care for my teeth like crazy, but it just doesn’t do much for me. Anyway, lately I have had a lot of work done to fix all these problems and my man has taken me to all of them. Not today…

I had to get the permanent crown put on and I did awesome!! Go me! Zero shots, zero nitrous…just got it done. The dentist even told me what an awesome job I did. We discussed it too. I’m a little shit, just a tiny “100lb soaking wet” type of girl. For some reason my body metabolized medicine too quickly. It took triple the normal dose to keep me sedated when I got my other work done. The numbing shots don’t work, never have. My current dentist has been doing a great job with me taking care of making me comfortable and helped me through it all. Almost all of it done today, just a few more appointments to go but they don’t have to be done for another year. I’m proud of myself though, did all of this on my own. Go me!

We have a date night planned soon, which I’m super excited for! It’s been a while since we’ve gone out alone and had a good time. Lately we’ve gone out a lot with other people or just sat around at home but we’re planning a night out soon to have a good time. I can’t wait! I love nights out with my man! I’ve never been one for clubbing but enjoy a nice dinner and a drink or two. We also have another nice camping trip planned, this one alone, and I’m so ready for that too! His birthday is coming up but he said he’s not celebrating, he’s just going to pretend it doesn’t exist until I can catch up! If only…

Calling All My Readers!

Over the years I have taken a lot of pictures and a few of my friends have told me I should get into photography on the side. A friend of mine owns a frame shop and I was considering asking her to try and sell a few there to see how it goes, but I’m not sure. So I’m asking for your honest opinion here! I want the 100% truth no matter how bad it is. I’ve been told I have a good eye, but I’m not sure. These pictures have been taken all over, Florida, Missouri, Colorado, Hawaii, and I’m not sure where else. Most of my pictures are from vacations.

So let me know what you think. Leave a comment. Should I get into this and try to see my pictures? Or just stay hidden and take the pictures for myself? I’ve included a few examples, so tell me what you think. Answer the poll or comment, your choice. Thank you!
