Two years ago i had a "little" bit trouble at work.
Some dumb mistake happened and the Boss blaimed me fully.
He tried to dismiss me instantly, but the union and employee organization (I'm a big fan of both, now) managed to save me.
At the end of it i got a written warning and i wasn't allowed to work for 3 nights.

This month all of this expired and and my record is "clean" again.

What a relief.

After a week with "Victoza" i lost 6 lb. The Doc said, this is unusual, but ok.

The fasting blood sugar level is great, but the other results could be better.
Tomorrow i start with the 1,2mg.

Next appointment in 4 weeks.
pneumonie: (Default)
Some Side effects making themself noticeable.

I feel mild nausea, i'm belching and i taste rotten eggs.

But the effect is awesome. With the lowest dose (0,6 mg) i have great results.
Next Wednesday i start with the next higher level (1,2mg).

My diabetologist paused all my insulin and gave me a prescrption for a new Antidiabetikum. It's called "Victoza" (Sounds like something Harry Potter would say), a "Liraglutide".

The side effects are vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss. Well, weight loss is a promising thing. Isn't it?

I start tomorrow and we'll see how it goes.

I started watching Sherlock. What can i say, besides: Jeremy Brett isn't my favourite Holmes anymore.
I really like how Cumberbatch is , and Freeman as Watson too,  presenting the character(s).

Funny little running gag, the gay or not gay assuming from the surrounding Characters.
I think it's not even a subtext anymore.

The cases are very thrilling, and really good transported in present time.

Only the last episode is left for me to watch, but i wait till the Season 2 Box arrived, because i need subtitles. Holmes talks (and think) to fast and i understand nothing.

So i buyed:

Sherlock Season 2
Entourage Season 1
Shameless (UK Version) Season 1-5
Robin Hood (BBC Version) Season 3

Oh my.
Now i have a Tumblr too.
I'm not sure for what purpose, but  i'm preventive and wave my productive life goodbuy for good.

Here we go again.

Last Christmas Friday a coworker newer showed up.  We doesn't noticed that, because she's always late and she was sheduled for the other building.
Eventually the other coworker in this building noticed an infomed us in the main building.

We called the absent one and ask her why don't she showed up.

She thought she had the day off, because she had so much extra hours. She forgot to register or mention this and now she doesn't feel for work and she refuse to show up.

Ok. For that i gave her a sick day in the books. She was not pleased.
She's lucky that i not call our head of nursing service.

Well. i send the third person to the other building and worked the main building with a co worker alone.

The other day the absent one from yesterday showed up as nothing happened.
I avoid her, or i lost it.

Next thing

An old lady complained about pain in her left leg. I would gave her her extra pain meds, but these were discontinued from the MD (I gave her nevertheless something, but pssst)

I informed the morning shift and the guy said something like this: The pain is only in her head. Don't pay attention.
Well. Even that sort of pain is pain anmd need attention. Ok.

Yesterday i was informed that the old lady is transferred to the Hospital. This morning she complained a lot and they send her away for x ray.

What can i say? They diagnosed a fracture of the femur neck. She broke her leg as a result of a fall weeks!! ago. She was never sent away for x ray, despised her complaines of pain, or inability to stand.

I'm seriously pissed and i'm very "sorry" that i have my days off, otherwise i would say to the dayshift guy (who word the afternoon today) a thing or two.

Well, i think, the Show was OK. Some things were surprising, some things not.

Notes )
Well. that was that. Now we can focus on the Oscars.

Father is still in the Hospital.
They drained his lungs. 1litre fluid they got, but he's better and he can leave next week, it seems.

I found a very good friend from school  in the net and now we write a lot.
After 20 years there is a lot of news and gossip to share.

New purchases:

Stargate SG-1  Season 10
House Season 4
Tropical Heat Season 1
Scrubs Season 7

Newsies (Collectors Edition)
and a few German TV Classics from the 80s

Can anybody recommend a good page like "Hide my Ass"?
HmA doesn't work sometimes.
I had another one, but it dissapeared.

Well, father's in the Hospital again.
His blood samples came back awful, the liquid in his pericard is increased and there is even liquid in his lungs.

They can't drain the lungs because of the blood thinning meds. Now they discontinue the meds and sheduled the draining for Monday.

Father's down and crying, mother is devastated.
Thank god fathers cousin stays a few days.

Speaking of cousins.
My cousin is in the hospital as well.
She had an emergency surgery yesterday. She had bowel inflammation and the doc's were forced to remove some of it.
Thankfully she doesn't need  a Stoma

I really hope 2012 starts better as 2011 ends

I hope you all had a pleasant Christmas.

Mine was full of bonecrushing work, because of sick coworkers and other stuff.

My father was released from the Hospital 2 days before Christmas. He's slightly better, but now he has a bad cold (like myself) and loiter around. This pisses my mother off, because she worried about him, but he doesn't say anything about his wellbeing.

Once he said to me he had problems in a shoulder. That makes her sort of jealous, because: "He is talking to you, but not to me"

Fucking Kindergarten.

Let's hope 2012 is better.

A very Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] gabi_fics.

I hope you have a great day and time to breathe.

My father had not a heart attack.

It's a pericarditis and a inflammation of the heart itself.
This is a complication from a pneumonia he had weeks ago.

His pulse still runs a mile a minute and he's now on blood thinning meds and lot's and lot's antibiotics

Let's hope he's home at christmas.

Yesterday was the day. I saw Alison Moyet, Seal and others like John Miles.
Alison lost so much weight. Now she looks like Lisa Stansfield. But her voice was awesome like always.
I don't like Seal, but he is a awesome performer. He went right through the crowd. The security wasnj't quick enough to keep pace.
He serenade a middleaged woman who looked very embarrased.

After that we went home and a few hours later mother called me. My father got sick.
I went downstairs. His blood pressure was terrible and i called 911.
They took him to the ER. Suspicion for a heart attack.
After that they tranfered him to the ICU for further tests.
Mother and i went home.

This afternoon we visited him. Now he's on the normal ward.
He is a little bit better, after some treatment. He's capable for terrible cheesy lines again:
They asked him for former heart problems: Yes, 1962. (Mother and i: huh?)
This was the year i fell in love with my wife.

Mother: Awwwww
Me: *facepalm*

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] aliensouldream.

I would sing, but i don't want to scare you away.

Many gifts and nice visitors.

I know it's boring, but i repeat:
Work is madness. But now at the day. The Nightteam seems ok at this time (knock on wood).

A few new coworkers start not long ago at some specific area. One of the, a trained nurse was forced to work her area alone. At her very first day. They gave her a instruction sheet and: let's go. Work!  For this she quit her former job.

At Friday night a few collegues called in sick and another new one was entirely alone at afternoon shift. Other areas helped her out, but she was entirely overwelmed. It helped nothing, that even then  someone died. At my arrival she sat at the desk and had a good cry. Understandable.

I took over, the physician came and recorded the dead, but he took his time. The widow had also the need for a chat and i ran out of time for my first medical round. It became a bit hectic at the end.

I buyed again:

Spooks Season 8 + 9
a German TV event from the 80s, called "Wilder Westen inklusive"

and some books about Teen Movies and the so called Brat Pack.

I still have no Christmas presents, but a few days remain, right?

It's almost incredible, but a friend and i found finally a time for a meeting in the city. We tried this since may.

One unbelievable thing?

It seems my bad knee became normal again.
A few weeks ago i went downstairs and suddenly a really big pain shot through the knee. Like something ripped.

2 Weeks i couldn't walk properly, but now i can walk, take the stairs without any pain. I can even kneel.

Weird, but i can't complain.
pneumonie: (Default)
Business as usual at the job. This means: Everybody is nuts.

Last saturday a coworker forgot her worknight. Thank god the coworker who likes to skip work showed up.

In 3 of 4 nights i was the only trained nurse (3 on a normal night) and switched buildings a few times due to medical duties.

A coworker from the day shift is tranfered in the night, because of the many sick ones in the night team.
I hope we can keep her. She is a busy bee.

The dayshift is incapable and overwhelmed and i'm on the brink for an official complain


Buy Time

The last few weeks i bought nothing.

Now i bought 8 Seasons Stargate SG-1.
7 Seasons of them as a collection on 50 dvd's with a pretty connected backcover picture.

Today i bought the complete box from Dawson's Creek.
I never saw it on tv and for several reasons i'm willing to give it a try.

I'm totally beat. Work is insane. Several coworkers are sick. A few of them for a longer time.
Today i make an extra shift and my knee cracked so loud a few nights ago, my coworker across the room was able to hear it. But it still works ok.

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Oh, one thing.

This morning, the dayshift complains the fact, that i work to good. At least this is my interpretation.
I use stronger material for the incontinent folks and they think it's a waste of material.

They are never satisfied. Their loss

I just finished the last two episodes fom TWD.

Hell, the last ep was intense. Suspense, suspense.

Despite that the start was quite a clicheè (wake up from a coma and there was a zombie apocalypse. Hello Alice), the rest was fantastic.

Now i watch the Features and face the reality of filmmaking.

Oh no. They show the "We need more guts" scene again.

Anyway. I need the Comics for sure.
pneumonie: (Default)
I continued with TWD and saw ep 3 + 4.

First of all: Weeeee, Reedus.

Ha! Shane beating up the Ed was very satisfying.

Wow, ep 4 was sort of heartbreaking. The end was cruel.

The gang running the nursing home? I didn't see that coming. But who would?

My first thought when the old women showed up: Awwww the gang had it's headquater at granny's.

The nursing home was unexpected but touching.

The next episodes tomorrow.
