Whimsical Wednesday

Work was fast and easy today.  In at 10:30 and out by 5:30.  We did two patients and then lunch, and then we had one in the afternoon.  Slow and easy, quite unusual.
I cleaned  and then did paperwork. 
 Tomorrow I will work for two hours in the morning and then take Rollie to the hospital for a heart cath.

Thankful Tuesday

Busy, busy, busy...10 hour workday!  I slept good last night.
