Your vibe attracts your tribe 💕 Truly believe in this! Happiest Birthday gorgeous soul @cat.law 🎉 And what a great way to spend it by going to an Arvo shift hehe Hope they spoil you! 😬😘 #adultlife#birthdaygirl#midwife (Love this pic so much, so worthy of staying longer than Insta stories hehe) 📷 @asiya_and_maye
🎉 Wanted to send my sincere congrats to those who matched into advanced endoscopy fellowship yesterday. It wasn’t too long ago that I went through this unpredictable process (especially with most programs having only 1 position), so I can empathize with the incredible stress of going through a match process for the THIRD time (after residency and GI fellowship matches). 🙌
🤗 With open arms, I welcome you to this corner of GI expanding with innovation. Your year will be technically demanding and sometimes physically taxing. But it was one that is perhaps the most formative in defining what you’ll be doing in the future! 🙌 Those of you on here, I’m honored to call you future colleagues for real now...from now on we will collaborate and see each other for the REST of our lives at conferences, and together we commiserate about having to constantly explain how what we do seldom has anything to do with 💩!

Today was the last day for my mentor @marciacarnal . She is the kind of nurse I hope to be one day: smart, confident, tough, empathetic, thoughtful and a memory that can help her make a patient’s day. She received this hand painted gift from a patient today and it shows what kind of impact she has on her patients.
My unit is losing a great asset, and in my opinion, the heart of stability on our unit. Nurses can be understanding and practice a high degree of patience to our patients but we can be cruel, unforgiving, and impatient towards each other. With the forever changing, fast pace environment we live and work in we need to be more understanding, kind, and practice patience towards each other. NOBODY understand what we go through but each other. Let’s support each other more bc mentors like this great lady is a diamond in the rough. #nurse#nursing#nurselife#rn#rnlife#mentorship#peersupport#nursesupportingnurses
🏩💓✝️This day was rough. Not gonna lie, I was anxious and had a heavy heart when I woke up this morning. I had a very sick patient that kept getting sicker all week. I just didn’t know what I was missing. She took a turn for the worse yesterday so I was stressing hard. This scenario is one thing that makes my job so difficult—sometimes patients don’t get better. Sometimes I can’t fix them. After much consideration, I ordered a CT that gave me that answer: she had a mass. A large mass. After a phone call explaining all of this to her son, I transferred her to the ICU. Being in medicine is not glamorous. It’s hard to separate work life from personal life sometimes. I’m grateful that I am able to leave the hospital at night, because, my patients don’t 💓

While in Bali I saw a spiritual healer who specialized in reading palms. He told me many things as he dissected the intricate lines in my hand. Without prompting, he told me men were plentiful, but I picked disloyal ones. He could tell I was creative, but had too many ideas that needed to be narrowed down. Then he looked at my frayed love line and affirmed that I’d been divorced once and that I would be married again. He said a “good” boyfriend was coming soon. He traced the lines posterior and lateral to my pinky and said I would have 1-2 children. I laughed. This made me consider my future. I am frequently asked if I want children and never know how to respond. When contemplating my divorce at age 27, I knew I needed to be single for quite some time to find who I was again and I knew this meant I may possibly not have children - a risk I was willing to take. Either way, I vowed to accept whatever my future would hold. Ever since then, these are typical questions/statements I navigate on the regular. “Do you want kids?” If I find the right person and the timing works out, yes I want kids, but I won’t marry someone for the sake of being a sperm donor. “Would you adopt?” Maybe, it depends. “Well, you probably won’t even need that because women are having babies at age 40 these days.” Thanks, but I really might not have kids. “Everyone wants kids.” No they don’t and just because I want them doesn’t mean I will be able to have them [Insert awkward silence]. “It’s okay, you’ll have them some day.” 🤦🏼♀️ This scenario is extremely common in medicine when women are pursuing higher education through their 30s. Really, I don’t blame people for saying these things, it’s culturally engrained at this point and most mean well. However, it’s important to be sensitive because women don’t wear their fertility history on their sleeve. And notably, to the extent that people are programmed to talk about having children, some women are trying feverously to fight the physiological longing for them. Reflect, because no life, with children or without is a cakewalk. We are all just trying to rationalize and find contentment from the cards we are dealt ❤️ #nurseabnormalities
