my mood hasn't improved..it was a shitty day at work that just reminded me how far removed we are now from florence nightingale. pretty soon she is going to be an embarassment to nursing..oh wait she already somewhat is...a few more years down the road and we will wipe even her memory clean, she won't even exist in our past...apparently the whole florence thing is not a great image for nursing in this century..we are so about the science and the process and the presented public image....the people patients are just the excuse for our perpetuating and promoting of stepford-like corporate health care, based on the perfect lie.
grrrhhh...bad days will go away..just do the best that you can.
sigh..homecoming was pretty quiet tonight..no jewel underfoot having a fit cuz there are too many bodies between her and me. and the medical room seems empty without brody coming to shove his nose up against my lips. i still try not to look at the fireplace with it's two empty little chi beds..i wonder how long it will take me to move them..probably i will do it soon, but not yet.
the spca called today about a very skinny and frail old cat who i could hear yelling away in the back ground...they said she is a real character but she is wrecked and totally unadoptable so they want her to have a good place to go. i let them know about sweet pea's loss (cuz sweet pea came from them) and said this new old one could have her spot here...so i will pick her up on monday, which is my next day off.
well..i guess i can put my work day behind me now and learn to adjust to the losses around here. the animals still alive and breathing are waiting patiently for me to finish my whining and complaining and spend some time with them....some have no time for me to foolishly waste, worrying about things i have no power to change.
