I have been feeling really good lately. I still get random bursts where I am really short of breath but overall I feel like I am living a normal life again! Work is great! It's been very busy in the NICU lately and I really feel like I am starting to get the hang of things. I am learning new things day by day and enjoying each and every moment. I love that I am able to help not only the babies but also their anxious and worried parents. Being a nurse is everything I have always imagined and I am so happy that I did not give up on my goals! I am actually looking into starting school again to get my Masters degree! I already sent the application in - now I just have to send all of my transcripts in (since I took summer classes at a bunch of different schools over the years). I get tuition reimbursement with my job and the program I am looking into is actually not expensive at all because its a city school! I would actually end up almost getting my masters for free! I am applying to specialize in parent-child nursing. My ultimate goal is to remain working in the NICU and start teaching at a nursing school or university on a part-time basis! Ever since I started nursing school I always envisioned myself teaching a nursing class or even clinicals in the future!

Dear Lungs,
Please stop waking me up in the middle of the night. You are loud and obnoxious and you aren't even productive, so you are essentially doing me NO favors. My bronchoscopy showed nothing of importance and I am NOT ready to go back on IV's - so please just leave as quickly as you came!
Please & Thank You,
Katy =)
