There have been times I almost let my desire for comfort hinder my growth in various aspects of my life. It’s natural to want to be comfortable, but I’ve learned that it can prevent you from taking steps that are essential for your development. Sometimes the road to success requires you to move away from family and friends and into unfamiliar territory. Sometimes it requires you to start a project that requires new skills. Sometimes it can be as simple as requiring you to stand up and talk in front of a large audience.
Comfort will keep you on the shoreline instead of venturing out and seeing whats further ahead. Comfort will keep the weights on the rack and those muscles from growing. Comfort will keep you in the shallow end of the pool and prevent you from becoming a strong swimmer.
There is a time and place for comfort, but don’t allow your apprehension to moving outside of your comfort zone prevent you from stepping onto the bigger stage the Lord has prepared for you. #growth#success
Erin e Abby Delaney nasceram 10 semanas antes do 24 de julho de 2016 no Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. A dupla de gêmeas siamesas cephalopagus aos 10 meses foi separada por uma equipe de 30 profissionais médicos.
A cirurgia de Erin e Abby durou 11 horas e marcou a 24ª vez que os cirurgiões no hospital separaram um par de gêmeos unidos. Os gêmeos siameses ocorrem em aproximadamente uma a cada 200.000 nascidos vivos.
Em outubro de 2016, eles operaram os gêmeos para cortar o osso onde os crânios estavam unidos e colocar um dispositivo que seria usado para afastar gradualmente os dois. Chamada de "distração", o processo aumentaria um ou dois milímetros de separação por dia. Procedimentos similares foram utilizados com sucesso em outros tipos de cirurgia reconstrutiva, mas esta foi uma nova técnica na separação de gêmeos conjugados. Ao longo dos próximos anos, os gêmeos precisarão de cirurgia plástica e reconstrutiva adicional para substituir as áreas de osso ausentes na parte superior de suas cabeças e normalizar suas hemorragias e minimizar as cicatrizes.

I’m back again with radiology tip for non-radiology peeps out there! This time we have lumbar xray of a young adult from a sledding accident.
I personally found that lateral (side) view is most useful when it comes to finding a compression fracture. In the AP (front) view there are several shadows and lines going on which can be overwhelming for untrained eyes. The second image is less busy. Count the vertebrae and check their similarities/differences. Here, there is a mild degree of impaction under the upper endplate of L1. There is anterior wedging, which is just a fancy way of saying there is loss of the affected vertebral height. Swipe to the next image for better visual explanation.
The yellow lines represent the loss of L1 vertebral height which you can see a wedge formation compared to red lines of L3 who is perfectly happy. When I look at lumbar xrays I always draw imaginary lines to help me find a fracture such as this. Though this method is more difficult if a patient’s vertebrae are arthritic/degenerative. It’s also worth noting that while xray is helpful, CT and/or MRI provide better and more detailed diagnosis. Hope this helps!
I need this reminder every so often!
Taking steps outside of the comfort zone daily can only make you stronger... even if you fail sometimes...
It’s what you choose to do when adversity hits you!!
Today I had clinical! Our clinical starts at 0515, and is over 30 mins away which means I have to be up at 0330 Thursday mornings 😭 today at clinical I was the student leader of the group, and had to oversee all the medications my classmates were giving, and quiz them on them! I also got to start my FIRST IV on a real patient in clinical, and was successful on the first poke. Today was a good, but LONG day. 💉👍🏼
I totally forgot to post about starting my first round of clinicals! So far I’m LOVING it! I’m on the floor that my grandpa passed away, which isn’t easy but I think it was meant to be.
But I wanted to tell you a story that I hope let’s you know that your loved ones never really leave you ❤️ I was in a patients room with my partner and she was doing an assessment, I was standing back watching. All of a sudden I felt like a pinch that felt like someone was grabbing my shoulder. I jumped, grabbed my shoulder and looked behind me... no one was there. I’m pretty sure it was grandpa letting me know he was still there with me.❤️. #nursingschool#nursingstudent#nursingstudentlife#clinicals
Working on some meal prep today. I have some delish steak bowls with tomatoes, baked potatoes, asparagus, steak, and salt and vinegar almonds. Perfect for getting through those long days next week! #mealprep#steak#reachingforthegoal#nursingschool
Week 1 of nursing is officially in the books. The executive team addressed all the new employees, and I asked them for their biggest tips on being an effective employee. Here is what they shared:
1. There will be parts of your career you like and parts you don’t like. In both situations, do the right thing, do it with your best effort, and do it effectively.
2. Figure out your career goals. Find a purpose. Learn to say no to things that are not purposeful for you reaching your goals.
3. Listen. Listen to the experience of your coworkers. Listen to the knowledge that has gotten you to where you are. Never become too anxious on the job to learn, listen, and absorb information and experiences.
4. Build strong relationships. When you go the extra mile for somebody, they will never forget it.
I’m not a long post kind of guy, but I thought this was worth sharing for anyone early in your careers! ✌️
the last couple of weeks have got me thinking about where I want to focus and what I would want my speciality to be, but honestly I still don’t know. I have a heart for a couple of areas and I’m excited to go through this journey and figure out where my calling lies. so to the people worried about the future, for those that feel like they have no idea what to do or those worried about if they’re doing “the right thing” - it’s okay to not be sure & don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. -
Since we were talking about specialities, just wanted to congratulate my friend @thenewgradrn, the newest NICU nurse on the block. To my nursing friends here, go follow her! She’s awesome ☺️
Trying to be positive in light of today (see my story for info if you’d like)•
Just a little #tbt to three weeks ago when I interviewed for South College’s #ABSN program. Two weeks later, I received my acceptance. In 46 days, I’ll start nursing school (finally 😭). It’s been a fairly long road getting to this point •
I decided too late into my first undergraduate degree that I wanted to do nursing. I spent four years taking classes towards my Bachelor of Health Science degree. Although i think it would have been way easier/quicker/cheaper to just do my BSN first, I don’t regret my degree at all. In my four years at the University of Florida, I took a ton of classes that I never would haven taken in a BSN program and I had the time to work at the VA, assist in research at the Children’s Medical Services Center, have a social life, etc. It was all good looking back, but it’s “added” four years to my plan•
After I graduated, I got a lot of rejections (see any one of several previous posts about my rejection letters). I then spent a full year taking more classes, getting a job as a CNA, doing a course to become a phlebotomist, and overall improving myself. It all took time, effort and money •
I also moved 5 times during my gap year, between moving to a city for school, moving home when I couldn’t afford the program and decided to peruse my BSN again after several rejections, moving to Tennessee... it was all a lot. •
All that, and I still have nearly 7 more weeks of my two pre-read to finish before I start my nursing degree. I’m nearly 5 years deep into a 60 hour program, and it’s definitely making me anxious and restless to finally start my dream of becoming a nurse•
My real point here is this: the road to achieving your goals isn’t a straight line. You can plan and plan and write it all out, and it’s almost a guarantee that the actual outcome won’t follow your timeline. Sometimes it takes some serious perseverance and adaptability to reach your goals. Don’t let the fact that your plan isn’t perfect or bumps pop up dissuade or deter you from doing what you truly think you should be. #goals
