I wrote this explanation for interpreting arterial blood gases over a year ago, and every now and then it gets reviewed and reposted on Tumblr and makes me feel happy! Anyway, it must be a good one with all the attention it gets, so I figured…

I’m back :)

Well it’s been a long time, but I will begin blogging again this week!!! I apologise for disappearing for awhile. I just completed my year-long inductory ICU program, and it was pretty intense. But now I’m a permanent ICU nurse AND I’m doing 12 hours shifts, which means more days off, and more time to share the limited wisdom I have gained over the last year.

Thanks for following me everyone, talk to you all VERY SOON!!!

Cancer is devastating. Cancer and the treatments that go with it cause pain, sickness, hair loss, stress, financial problems, loss of self esteem, impacts on body image, grief and so much more.

So my friend and I have decided to participate in Dry July this month. It means that we will not be drinking in July, and are asking for donations to go to the hospital that I used to work at. Money raised goes to cancer patients, such as the ones I nursed on the haematology ward!

If you can, please donate as little or as much as you’d like to our team. It doesn’t take much time, and it is going to a great cause!!!

Thanks for your help :)
