I Got A Promotion!!

With the new Medicare/Medicaid guidelines starting October first, I will be working in our MDS office writing care plans, data gathering and general dogsbody. This will allow me to keep working while we try to find out what my health problem is and allow me flexible hours for doctors appointments and such. Of course it means a complete schedule change. I'll be working days for a while and then switch to 10 hour shifts in the evenings. I'll be losing one whole day off a week.

Thanks, Forty! I'll miss my patients, but maybe some time off my feet will do me some good.

Thanks, Andy! I did a pretty good song and dance to convince them I could do the job.

all of this "american idol" and "dancing with the stars" stuff has gone too far if you ask me...

WTG Princess! I do some nights. The secret is getting 4 hours of sleep in the morning and another 2-3 hours in the evening just before you leave for work...it's a must. If you start to get sleepy at work then get up and move around, do some stretches, crunch on some cold ice if you have strong teeth, drink an energizing tea, snack on crunchy raw veggies. You'll do great! They're lucky to have you
