Worky kind of work

SO I started back at work this was better than I envisioned it. I expected to have a complete mental breakdown when I had to walk through NICU or LD. I actually was ok. I took a deep breath before I scrubbed in and it was alright. Seeing the little ones in the NICU was hard, especially the ones who were big like Sage was. Some tragic cases but mostly just feeder grower babies there to pack on the pounds and days until they go home. I found myself thinking "thank god Sage went quick and didn't suffer on life support". Crazy thought but it's so hard seeing those little ones struggle. Was again blown away though at the callousness of some moms....another baby, another mouth to feed...or worse, another check on the way...woohoo! It's many would kill for a baby and here is some woman on baby 5 and says she really didn't want the last 3......what's wrong with this picture?


  1. I ask myself that same question all the time. Some of us struggle so for children and others don't even appreciate the lives they are blessed to have. As you say....

    What's wrong with this picture?

  2. There was a story on the news the other day of a mom who went to drop off her 3 year old son at the police station because she didn't want him anymore. All I could think was how ungrateful she was. I mean was he really cramping her style?

  3. I just met another nurse who adopted a baby she took care of in the mother baby unit....was a mess and they all thought she was crazy but now 8 months later she is amazing and you wouldn't be able to tell she had anything wrong. This nurse/mom also had had 4 m/c in the past. She said NOW her family was complete. It was an amazing story to hear.
