First day back

So Sunday was my first day back to work. I am use to getting up early that was no biggie. But as I looked at Nicholas sleeping so peacefully in my bed, I wished I didn't have to go back. But reality has set in and so have the bills. I needed to return back to work. I made sure to pump before I left and thankfully left a 6 oz bottle of fresh milk.

Work was busy at first it takes awhile to get back into the groove of things. I had all my beds full when I took assignment. Patients being admitted, some going to OR, some still haven't been seen by the Dr. The day just started out busy. It seemed like I was getting all the pediatric children that day in my beds that made me wish I was at home more with all my babies. Luckily I was not too rusty when it came to start an IV.

Overall it was a decent day I pumped 2x during my shift. Next time I will pump 3x. Hopefully on those days my milk supply won't drop too badly and screw up the rest of the week.

Nicholas did well being with out me he slept alot according to hubby. The other kids are easier now and can fend for themselves some what. So yeah back to the work grind. Thankfully I don't have to work too much just a few shifts a month. YIPEE
