My shift on Sunday was manageable, though I didn’t sleep well the night before and I didn’t sleep well the night after either. I had a lot of grumpy-ish people on Sunday, but the shift was manageable enough that I had time to make everyone less grumpy. (Which I oddly enjoy doing. I love taking report where the night nurse cautions me – this patient/family is grouchy, demanding, unreasonable, etc. etc. and by the end of my day, I’ve managed them to be calm, mostly reasonable & doing what I need them to do. It doesn’t always work and I can get frustrated too, but like 90% of the time I can de-escalate. Now that I’ve said this, I won’t be able to do it anymore.)

I had to miss Jane’s birthday party on Sunday afternoon:

Vince spent the weekend camping and participating in Klondike in which all the area troops gather together and compete in various events. You can read about it here. It was wet and cold, not ideal.

Jeremy is in Albany today – he left at 5 am? Will be back after dinner tonight.

I think this is the only photo of Vince inside of me. Still working through old photos.

My dad got diagnosed with a moderate-type of prostate cancer yesterday. PSA levels are low. He’ll undergo radiation for a few months. He doesn’t seem worried, I’m not too worried. We’ll see how it goes. My mom seems the most worried.
