Things I have learned in the ICU.

- To play twister with the many IV pumps, tubes, wires, and vents on the side of the patients. Goal don't get caught on a wire or tube or you and the patient lose.

- That a vent patient can make for a nice quiet day at work.

- To make nice with the Dr's all 50 of them for my one patient. ok exaggerating but you get the idea.

- To love fruit salad. One of the nurses makes a mean fruit salad when the day is sailing through.

- That I can appreciate the slowness of the ICU the pace is a vacation from the ER.

I am sure I will post more later. And yes I miss the ER still.

Sorry you still miss the ER! ICU Twister sounds fun though ;)

CUTE! Love it. I'm glad you are at least making the best of it and appreciating the finer points.
