Update on the links to my templates

Ellie was kind enough to let me know that the links to templates 18 and 19 were invalid. Turns out so was template 17. I have re-uploaded the templates this time MediaFire. I will now check all my links and fix them.

Thank you for letting me know, Ellie. It's much appreciated. Have fun doing my tuts! And I love to see the results when you are done!

I'm so happy!!!!!!!!!!!

I passed my procedures exam!!!!!!!

I picked the CPR and the emergency trolley.I didn't want it,I was dreading I didn't remember all the medication-what they were for.But I got through them pretty well.And the rest of emergency equipmentand the theory questions.Whoohoo!

One of my friend's failed her test,she mixed up to medications which is not good.I know of two other girls who failed injections today -mostly the theory part.And I know several who failed yesterday too.So all these have to re-take the exam on 11th Dec.

I'm so happy I don't have to.Instead I can consentrate for my other exam,patology and farmacology in 2+ weeks.

Training before our big exam

We have a nursing procedure exam in a few weeks, so we are training on the procedures to get them "into our fingers". We have 14 procedures we need to know, they will be printed on papers and you'll pick a piece of paper and that is the procedure you have to do + 10 minutes of theory. Wish me luck!

Oh the idiots

Today we got the first snow of the season. And as usual so many idiots have not put on their snow tires!!! Just like last year, and the year before that and the year before that and the.....Saw lots of cars and some trucks in the ditches. Huge long queues due to people on summer tires. It usually takes me less than one hour to get to college, today it took me over two hours each way. Going home there had been an accident in a long hill, after 30-40 minutes in the queue, I got close enough to a side road and took the short cut around hill and got home sooner that way.

It's not snowing tomorrow, so that's good. And hopefully more people will have snow tires on.

New tut - Unlock Halloween

I finished my first internship at the hospital and I'm happy to say I passed it. Makes me so happy. Now it's back to the books and two weeks of lectures to get ready for two exams in November and December. One of them is an exam in patology and farmacology, I'm really dreading that exam, so much to learn for it.

Any hoot, I now have some more time and energy to write tuts and make tags, as long as that lasts LOL.

Here's my last Halloween tut of 2008. I have it up in my new website :-).

I just bought my own domain to host my tutorials. MSN is closing down and I looked and looked around to find where to host my tutorials. I found nothing I liked until I found freeweb. However, it was too small to host my tuts, so I checked their prices and terms. I didn't like it. I'm a member of TWI so I checked their bandwidth thread and one member there recommanded, it's a Danish webhotell and they have support in my native language - Norwegian, and they were CHEAP compared to others. I'm on their smallest package and we'll see from there how it goes. And best of all the name I wanted was not taken.

So as soon as I get things up and running, I will tell you the address to my brand new tutorial site!!!

Oh, I'm so exited. I do hope I'm able to do all this myself. They have templates, so I have to use that, I'm not that good at HTML yet. LOL!

Wish me luck!

Two weeks ago, when my nose was still plugged up from my cold and my sense of smell was small, I re-filled my car's windshield washer fluid, I have two fluid containers. I filled one, then when filled my second one I had to find another gallon fluid bottle, I did find the colour of the washing fluid different, it was green instead of blue and it smelled a bit strong. Then the week after when I got my smell back and used my windshield wipers, my whole car smelled like gasoline. I was "what the heck!!" And today, when using them again, I had to open my window, it smelled so badly gasoline. When I got home, I opened the washer fluid bottle and smelled it, gasoline. I had my mom smell it too and she agreed. So I took the bottle to my local gas station, and they said it smelled like diesel!!! So one of the guys helped me, put a waterhose down the container and flushed out the diesel. Then he washed my car bonnet, windshield, windshield wipers and car roof. Bought a new bottle of windshield washer fluid. I talked to dad when I got home, he could not understand it had diesel in it, he had not filled diesel on an empty fluid bottle. I'll go to the gas station that sells this brand and we'll see what happens then.

It really pisses my off that all this happened.

I accidently killed a bird

A couple days ago, I accidently killed a bird with my car. The silly bird came flying out from the side of the road right in front of my car and car tire. I had no chance at all to swirl avoiding hitting it. When I looked in my mirror, I saw feathers flying in the air and the poor bird corpse in the middle of the road. I felt so bad, but there was nothing I could do. I hate when something like this happens. In the US, I hit a raccon which run in front of my car too, this one disappeared into the woods, but I don't know if it made it or not.... :-(

Busy busy busy

I've not been able to do much on my blog lately. My life is very busy with my internship at the hospital. I cannot believe I'm halfway done already.

Done so much and learnt so much. Done four i.v.s, only failed at one, the elderly lady had some slippery veins that got away from me LOL.

Wish my luck on Wednesday, I then have a one hour meeting where my nurse contact and teacher will talk about my internship so far, and I have to talk about what I've learnt so far, what I plan for the rest of my internship, etc, the positive and the negative. I'm dreading it a bit.

We got another gold and one silver

Andreas got another gold medal in javelin men, he got one in Athens four years ago, so we are exited!!! And he got a new olympic record of 90,57m.

And Nina got a silver in Tae Kwon Do women. She lost to the world champion from Mexico, but that's okay. She still did great!

We have 3 gold - 5 silver - 3 bronze
Not bad for a big winter sport nation.
Whoo hoo!!


We won the gold!!!!

Finally, Norway has won the Olympic gold medal in women's handball. Norway has all kinds of gold medals but not the Olympic gold, but now we do - whoo hoo!!!

We beat Russia by 7 goals and Norway controlled the whole match!! We're such a happy nation now!!!!

Norway has the chance for two more medals. Nina Solheim is in the finale for women +67kg Tae Kwon Do. And Andreas Thorkildsen has a chance for a medal in javelin, he got the gold in Athens four years ago.

Driving to the hospital today, I suddenly saw something in the left side of the road. After a sec, I realised I was looking into a moose butt. I hit the brakes and drove very slowely behind him. He could not decide what to do, he went over to my side, then looked left and right and weaved in the road. He finally decided for the left side ditch with some trees and bushes, right side had a mountain side. So he jumped into the ditch and when I drove passed him, I looked into the ditch, there he was standing in between the bushes and looked back at me. LOL!

My big fear is to hit a moose, especially in the early morning when they are often out and about from the woods- this was before 6am. Hitting any kind of animal is terrible but mooses are so big to hit. The moose hunting starts soon too, and some mooses might leave the woods to get away from the hunters and that makes it even more dangerous driving around countryside roads.

Day two

Yesterday I saw the anestetic part of surgeries, today, I saw more of the operation part. I saw how operation nurses work, how they set up the surgery. I paid good attention to sterile and non-sterile procedures. I saw three operations, all made by arthroscopy (arthroscopic surgery). The camera is in by your naval, then usually another three holes for rest of the equipments. One of them cuts or burns organ parts. First surgery was a* ... well, in Norwegian it's called a stomi, have not found the English word for it. It's where you cut the colon in two and lower part is closed and the other part from the stomach is taken out on the outside to - layman's term: poop in a bag. The next two surgeries where gall bladder removal. Both women got their gall bladder's removed via the naval (butt).

Interesting how you can have a surgery through four wholes in your stomach. And how little blood there is. A great way to make a surgery without too much fuss. The first gall bladder patient actually got to go home the same day as her surgery.

Now I also know why surgeries can be late. Waiting for anestesia doctors, then waiting for the surgons, etc.

Two very interesting days.

~ MayK

Update: * the first surgery is called a colostomy, and you were a colostomy bag after surgery. Thanks for letting me know, Kc!

First day

I had my first day at the hospital today. I'm having a 9 week long internship as a nurse student. I'm going to be at Surgery 4 which is stomach and intestines. However, my first week is at third floor, which is two days in surgery, two days in intensive and probably one day at pre op.

So today was my first day at surgery. It was very exciting, so much to see and learn. Too many impressions LOL. I saw four surgeries. It was day surgeries, so the patients are not spending the night. I saw two foot surgeries, one shoulder surgery and one arthroscopic knee surgery, it was cool to see the camera inside the knee and the doctor shaving inside the knee. The fifth surgery got cancelled, which was a hand surgery.

One patient also let my practice doing an IV (peripheral IV). Information on IVs HERE. She had a sister, a nurse, who had practiced on her many times, and getting IVs didn't bother her. I got to do one when she was "sleeping" while the doctor was operating on her foot. It was nice to have a sleeping patient, didn't have to worry about her. Just the nurse watching me. It was 98% perfect. I got it straight in and aspirated blood straight away. When I put NaCl in the IV, it was perfect, I had not perforated the vein and no leaking. When I was done and taping the IV to the hand, then my hands started to shake. But the worst was done then, so I'm happy it happened after I was done and not before. LOL!

When I got home I was so tired. The sun was shining, so I took a nap in my sun bed on my veranda. It was so nice, but I woke up with a head ache. LOL!

Another exciting day tomorrow...........;)
