There, the final dreadful nothing-but studying school week is over! I was in a panic the other night, not being able to finish an assignment in time, but when I e-mailed my teacher she told me not to worry and to mind my health – I could hand it in later, during the summer or so. My, was I grateful to her, and to the Lord for answering my desperate prayers in a way I’d never have counted on!
On Monday my five week clinical starts, on a smallish hospital paediatric ward. I’m looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time… the fact that we have to do a survey while there doesn’t help. And, up until yesterday I didn’t even know where I was going to stay, it being in another town. That seems to have solved itself, though. The whole thing about working with children and adolescents when I am still such a new nurse also frightens me quite a bit.
A bunny I made for my sister one of the times she was in for surgery many years ago.
Another thing that has solved itself much better than I’d ever imagine is a home for my cat. Since I’ve been away so much, my parents have taken him in, more out of love for me than love of cats. My Mum likes cats, but she don’t like the work involved. My Dad never was a cat-person. My siblings love him, though. And now, when it turns out he’s a very good mice hunter, even my Dad can look at him with something else than indifference, he even pets him and praises his skills. W-o-w……
And right now it seems that the situation with my friend is going to be all right. I’m very grateful for your thoughts and prayers for this friend, and for me. I too am doing better.
Hopefully I’ll have something fun and sewing-related to tell you about next time.
