HI Everyone!!! I have been a bit out of it lately due to work.. Sorry got to learn how to balance my life and midnights! 3rd shift is hard work! lol I took a job with a mobile lab.. so I go into nursing homes, private homes and group homes and draw blood all night long. Then I head into the office to process and check in my specimens. We have been so busy the last few weeks that it has been complete nutso. I enjoy the job.. the hours are a bit much, I typically start around 11:30pm to midnight and get done (lately) around 2pm!!! Yes you read that right straight 14+ hrs a day! I thought for sure that the midnights would mess with my sugars and then throw in the long hours and I woudln't have been shocked to see my sugars up/down! NOPE they have been perfect! lol I have been in just complete shock and AWEEE over it! I even thought maybe my monitor was off so at one of the facilities I asked a nurse to use their and BAMM same reading! GO figure that one out! So anyways I think I am starting to balance things out-- strange that the body needs sleep ( LOL).. so be looking for my smiling little face ... I will be here!!! Take care everyone and hope your holidays ( you will hear from me before that but don't want to forget to wish it) are wonderful and blessed!
