A Pill?

She came in with a "bump on the head", a sore throat, and a baby in her belly (which meant a visit to the birthing floor, not the ER).

She thought that, maybe, her bump was causing her sore throat. (Ahem, huh?) After being cleared "OB-wise" (aka, nothing wrong pregnancy or baby related), doctor's orders were that she was to be released from our floor to go to the ER.

"Hmmm", said she. "I don't really want to go to the ER. Don't you just have a pill you could give me?"

Uh...no.

  1. Just came across your blog, and as luck would have it, on the SAME day I was thinking, "Gee, I need to find some nurse-y blogs" (I'm a Naval Officer with a Marketing degree working on a second career!) AND I just finished clinicals on the Womens Center and FELL IN LOVE with L&D!!! So thanks for the awesome timing! Anyway, I recently had a baby daddy come to the nurse's station asking for Sudafed FOR HIMSELF because he thought he was coming down with something and didn't want to give it to all the babies!!! Argh! Just go home, dude!

I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
