Ok, So Last night was CRAZY Im not sure what to even make of it, I learned alot which is always a good thing
I kind of did it to myself, jinxed myself, I came to work and saw my assignment. One baby who Id had the night before and then I was on second admit so usually unless were like totally overflowed with kids I wouldnt be getting a baby. So one kid all night. I go to get report thinking either this kid got sick today or Im gonna have a cake walk night.
I get report even the nurse giving report says "Wow your gonna have a long boring night, Im sorry"...She said the B word and I agreed with her and thats what Cursed me. NEVER say the B word around the babies they dont like it.
So some time goes by and life is going on and at 8pm my baby self extubates which means the Dr.'s Didnt want her extubated but she is her breathing tube is no longer where it needs to be thus not breathing for her= big problemo on a kid the size of my hand. Her heart rate and o2 sats fall and This is where God comes in, one of the Respiratory Therapists happened to be standing right there and two transport nurses happened to walk in the room just as Im slightly about to freak out realizing my baby is probably extubated (it hadnt been confirmed yet, but she totally was) we take her off moms chest (she was doing kangaroo care)and the doctor re-intubated her, but she still was not happy after that (kinda made her more mad I guess) and the night went down hill from there one thing after another after another, all the way up until about 630am when It was time to give report to the next nurse, the baby finally stabilized and was doing OK not great but OK when I left so Im interested to see hows shes doing when I go back
So I learned never ever ever to say the B word around the babies not even if you think you say it quietly, Also God knows best he knew there was no way on earth I could have survived if I had another baby to care for on top of all this and he put the right people in the right place when I needed them there he Also taught me I know how to hold my tongue when I really wanna make a snarky remark back to the nurse practitioner who made a snarky remark to me ( I really hate that just because your a nurse practitioner doesnt mean your better or more important and dont make snarky passive aggresive remarks to me please... Thank you)
