I can do hard things.

I've done it. I've finally graduated from orientation in the ER. It's been a long and stressful journey (and is by no means over), but you will no longer see red on my nametag!

I pray every morning that I won't do anything stupid and ESPECIALLY that I won't kill any of my patients, and then I go to work. As things start to get rough throughout the day, I just stop for a second and say to myself, "I can do hard things"...sometimes having to repeat it several times.

So...priority one chest pain with glucose through the roof, a couple broken femurs, combative, WBC of 25,000, possible TB with a GI bleed AND a sore throat?? Bring it on. I can do hard things.


  1. I dont understand one thing you said about that patient.

  2. and you're smokin hot. you're like THE woman. ; ) I'm like a proud mother.
