yesterday there was a patient scheduled for an out patient procedure. this guy was going in for a lap chole (taking the gall bladder out) this is a very simple procedure. this guy was 60something but he did have a pretty risky history. He had a CABG (heart surgery) about 7 years ago and had multiple vascular surgeries.
This guy was supposed to go home, but when his surgery was over and he was extubated (breathing tube taken out) his heart rate dropped to almost nothing! CPR was started right away but only went on for about a half hour before they pronounced him.
I dont work in the OR, i am a recovery room nurse. I never met this patient or family, but heard about it because he was supposed to come to recovery and go home.
my heart goes out to his family. i cant imagine how they felt leaving the hospital without him and knowing that they would never see him again. this guy had way more complicated risky surgeries before and this simple outpatient procedure was the one to take him out. I didnt find out why he coded and died, but our guess was a PE (blood clot in lung) or something.
I also felt bad for the care providers involved. even though im sure it wasn't anyones fault, we as humans and care providers cant help but feel that way. Codes rarely occur in the OR, so i know this was tough for all involved. the worst part of all, after this case was finished and he had been taken to the morgue, everyone had to move on to the next patient :(

I plan on sticking with this challenge at least until December. I want to see some growth but more than that I want my hair to stay healthy and continue to just learn my hair. I'm not very good with "out styles" but I am with twist. I figure why try to fix something that isn't broke lol

We were married 2 years ago on this day at Cocoa Beach Fl. It was a very eventful day, lol . It rained of course, infact stormed right after our ceremony while we were taking pictures. my hair was a mess, but i didnt care. I had originally gotten in done the day before we left for florida. it was in a pressed updo style with spiral curls. what was i thinking. i walked around disney the day before the wedding in rollers lol. the night before the wedding, while giving Ava a bath, i accidently turned on the shower and my hair was done! I didnt panick, i just blow-dried it and then pressed it again and did my best at an updo. it was ok, but of course it got ruined during our wedding. lol good times. enjoy the slide show :)

I didnt realize that my natural styling started back a few years ago. I was looking through old pictures and found some styles i wore about 4-5 years ago when i first stopped perming my hair. I remember doing the styles and everyone thinking i was crazy. because i pretty much got laughed at and didnt have the resources i have today, i resorted to pressing my hair. Below are a few pictures of styles i tried during that time. I actually had two strand twist!, i also wore a half wig, and phony pony :)
