Random thoughts of me....

So I thought I would just write some random stuff that is going through my head at this time:

1. I am tired of feeling crappy. This flu has taken me down, and down hard.
2. It's FREEZING down here. The news even said St. George is colder than up north today...and I believe it! I had a patient at 7 this morning and I thought I was going to die. I have no winter clothes either so I had on this wimpy jacket I got from the bookstore. But....I am gonna go shopping this weekend and am way excited to get some cute fall clothes.
3. I am a big fan of this song:
4. I really hope our fundraiser for the homeless in the upcoming week goes well. We are doing the coolest thing called a cardboard campout. See Here for how awesome it is going to be!

5. School cramps my style when I have 3 tests and a paper due at one time.

6. I miss Scuddles.

7. In this blog there is a post about her kids and how she had had a rough week with them. She overheard her husband while he was giving them a bath say, "Hey! Girls! The devil just called and
he said you're doing awesome!". I about wet my pants. I thought it was hilarious.

8. The Office last night was funny and I especially loved Jim's costume. His face had "BOOK" written on it. FACEBOOK! HA!

9. I really wish I could still trick-or-treat.

10. I need to work on homework really badly and not be on my blog.

Happy Halloween! Have a good weekend :)

Oh, we don't do that.

So I was in charge of a Special Needs Halloween carnival the other night.
I was wearing this shirt (excuse the coughing! SWINE!), and I will admit it DID look slightly maternity.

Well, half way through the night, this sweet old man who was NOT special comes up and asks me, "So, how far along are you?"

Because I am SO generous, I played right along.

Grabbing my tummy, "oh just about five months."

"Well, congratulations! Is this your first?"

" sure is."

"Oh well, you will NEVER regret it. I have 4 of my own and they are the best things that ever happened to me!"

And that was the point where I knew I should lose more weight and NEVER, ever wear that shirt again.

Is this too hot??

So funny story of the day:

I have a date of sorts this weekend that has been set up by Cam's boyfriend and let me tell has gotten quite the hype.

So Cam asks, "So Cheltz, what are you going to wear this weekend?"

"Well! I duno....I have this shirt that I love but I don't want to look TOO HOT."

"Wait, did you just say you don't want to look too hot?"

"Ya! Well, it is kind of sweatery...or like wintery...I just don't want too look like it is too hot!"

Ok looking at it, I sounded like an IDIOT. It was pretty funny.

Hope you laugh like we did!

Pageant Girl

K so, because it has been so crazy I never got to post funny stories about the pageant! So here is story number 1:

So basically I HATE swimsuit portion. So much. So much in fact that I seriously considered NOT walking out when I heard the words of death...."Next is contestant number 8, Chelsea Gould." Those words still haunt me. Anyway, at the rehearsal the night before, my swimsuit walk could not of been worse. I had wedgie of the nation and had to keep pulling it down in the back. Not to mention being compared to all these girls with SIX packs and legs like birds. Hi, I am anything but that size. I will say I lost 15 pounds for this dang pageant and was proud of it, I just still had 15 to 20 more to lose before I would have said that I was starting to even DIP into the waters of being comfortable with exposing myself like that.

Anyway, so after the horror of the night before me and mom knew that we needed adhesive, and we needed it quick. So naturally we found fabric adhesive at 2:00 in the morning the night before and we had to try it and make sure it worked. Well, we sprayed it on the cheeks and slapped that swimsuit down and it did wonders! We were both feeling great after figuring out how to duct tape the girls and getting a spray down tan in the shower. I hurried and slipped in the jamies, washed off the sticky spray, and put a little baby powder to make sure nothing was gonna stick.

I was out like a light finally and ready for the busy day of the competition the next day.

6:00AM rolls around and I turn to my side and in a panic realize that my jamies and undies are GLUED to my butt. Not like, hi that's a little sticky I am gonna have to take that off with some goo gone fabric is ADHERED to my BUTT. Well a good half hour later I finally got my pants off, which took plenty of skin with it. I wanted to kill myself, and now still wonder WHY IN THE JUDD I GOT MYSELF INTO THIS MESS?!!?

Oh it was a good experience. And I am very glad it is over. Here are some pictures:

Home from the Hopsital (you have to say it how it's spelled)

Finally! I got home from the hopsital. In my own twisted little head, however, I thought as soon as I left that place I would somehow feel all better! I was so wrong. I still have my icky cough and my achy body still aches. My fever is finally down which was what the reasoning was behind letting me come home. Anyway, the mom came and took care of me and cleaned too! I will miss having her here and so will all my friends since they love being around her so much.

As for now I will just keep smoking my peace pipe and hope that my lungs will keep gettin' better! Thanks for all the prayers in my behalf...they sure worked!

Here is my peace pipe aka nebulizer. Wish you could see the smoke better cuz it sure does look funny, and makes my lungs feel lots better.

Welp, last night was rough...I didn't fall asleep til 4:30 and as soon as I did fall asleep I got woken up to get jabbed for blood work and vitals. It was lovely. On a better note:

My lungs are starting to feel better after some really good breathing treatments and oxygen.
They said my chest X-ray looks better from the first one.
They have been able to keep my fever down.
The mom surprised me and came down! (Dat my nice!)
I have really nice friends who have come and visited me despite having to wear gloves, gowns, and masks.

The doctor came in and hopefully I will get out of here by saturday...we'll see!

Things I vow to try to not do as a nurse:

* Bang stuff into the bed constantly
* Put excessive and unneeded tape on EVERYTHING (meaning skin)
* Slam the door in the middle of the night
* Turn on the fluorescent brightest lights JUST to take a temp and blood pressure...the low lights will do, I promise.
* Walk the IV, tower faster than the patient so that it pulls on the IV
* Tell the person with Swine Flu that two 28 year olds died from it on the same floor in the last week
* Tell someone that it can't hurt "that bad".

Yes...these are all things that have happened...and you don't notice them until you are ACTUALLY a patient. Hopefully I can remember NOT to do them as a nurse.

Totally and completely, 100 percent miserable.

Well, my blog certainly has been low on the priority list over the last few weeks. It has been crazy with the pageant, homecoming week, and oh almost forgot that little thing called school! Anyway, here I lay now in the hospital with H1N1 AGAIN. Didn't I just have it? Weird. It came back with avenges however and I feel like I am going to croak.

The doctor has me on oxygen because I can't breathe and I am on some pretty serious anti-biotics. Because I had a wicked fever of 104.2 last night they also have me on fever reducing meds.

To sum it up I am stuck in the hospital for the next 3 days at least. Never assume that swine flu isn't that big of a deal like I did, or I promise you will end up like me. Here is a picture to sum up the joy I feel right now:

I'll keep you updated.
