The day after we got home I started my residency for Nurse Practitioner school and graduated in August 2008. I started a job in Holly Springs, MS which turned out to be a nightmare but great learning experience. Thankfully God knew that wasn't the job for me and he kept a job I interviewed for in October at St. Jude open all that time. I HAPPILY accepted the job at St Jude in the ICU as the nurse practitioner. IT IS WONDERFUL!!!! I have the most wonderful staff to work with. God was definitely looking out for Brandon and I.
I took the test by myself that morning and ran in to tell Brandon who was half-asleep. He sat straight up and said, "IVE GOTTA GET A JOB!". haha!! The next few months were slow going & full of anxiety for me. My history in nursing is LeBonheur ICU and St Jude ICU so you have to understand my view of the pediatric population is skewed. Thankfully I have a husband who is clam and logically and knows exactly how to bring me back to earth.
We are currently in the 2nd Trimester, at 24 weeks. You can keep up with it on the time tracker on the blog. I can't believe its been 6 months already! My friend Jessica said after the ultrasound time would fly, and it has!!!
I will post more about our little man in my next post since he is reason most of you are reading this.
Well that's our life over the past year summed up in one note. My first successful blog! Wohoo!
