Long Week

It's been a long week. I'm smack in the middle of far too many projects which makes sitting in front of the computer for any longer than absolutely necessary absolutely unbearable. However, there's been a lot of exciting personal news this week including a new apartment in Chicago and Daniel getting his superstar grant from Canada.

I had my first home visit with my new patient and it took a lot of "assertive" behavior on my part to get in the door and negotiate a second appointment. There's a fine line between bullying and nursing sometimes.

In our community health course, we're having a series of lectures on environmental health with an emphasis on lead poisoning. We read one study that found for every 10 microgram increase in lead levels, a child's IQ drops 5.8 points. Permanently. It is not uncommon for children who live in houses with lead paint to have lead levels of over 30 micrograms (normal is under 5 micrograms).

Congratulations on your new apartment in Chicago! When are you moving? Hope the rest of the semester goes well and that your move goes smoothly. I'm in the home stretch. Finals next week, pinning the following weekend, then graduation! Oh yeah, don't forget about boards in July! Yikes. Ok, maybe I'm NOT in the home stretch. Take care... :)

Hi - I was searching for blogs about associations and found yours. Reason I was searching for associations is I have one and I'm looking for ways people run theirs.
