Just a few nurse 👩🏼⚕️ essentials in the life of a PACU nurse.
Can you name all these items?
If not, keep reading below for what they all are:
1. Oral Airway
2. Roll of Medical Tape
3. Electrodes for EKG monitoring (monitoring your heart rhythm)
4. K-Basin - for those times we don’t discuss 🤮
Some things aren’t meant for every person to understand, as long as you know the meaning within your heart. Getting this tattoo on my birthday means a lot to me, especially at this time in my life. I wanted my first tattoo to be one that represents who I am, what I stand for, and what I believe in. I wanted it to be one I designed, one that I can truly live by for all the days of my life.
- I believe that goodness will always prevail over evil.
- I believe that suffering is only temporary, and that paradise is eternal.
- I believe that happiness is the key to life, and that we choose whether or not to lead a happy life.
This past year was the most difficult I’ve endured. Moving away from home and all I knew, having to move back home, straying from my faith, failing a semester of nursing school, enduring tremendous family struggles, struggling with an eating disorder, and having mild depression - all in which I kept and fought through in secret.. I can say that I hit rock bottom this year; however, here I am today - in the most peaceful state of mind, filled with God in my heart, serenity in my mind, and genuine love around me. I’ve had my time of grieving from all the hurt in my life, and still - I stand.
This tattoo is very sacred to me because it represents my favorite quote from my favorite movie series: Harry Potter. It is a saying I have tried to live by each day from the moment I heard ole’ Albus say it. To have it permanently engraved on me is a reminder to take life as it is; throughout the good and the bad, and no matter what; to always, always, be happy - because life is just too short to be anything else.
"..but you know - happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." - Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore 💡⚡️ ____

If there is one thing that I have learned over the course of my wellness journey the last year and a half is that its ALL in my head....
I told myself I could never do what I am doing today. I couldn’t open up, share my story and coaching. I told myself I wouldn’t be able so help other women!
I told myself id never love my body.
I told myself id never be able to stick to a workout program or find something that worked for me.
I told myself Id never have defined abs or love some of my biggest insecurities: my arms! .
But guess what?! Things change! ✨ There are so many things that I’ve told myself over the years, but over the last year my mindset shift and the way that I speak to myself has changed so much! .
Through a lot of personal development and support from other women, I have changed the way I think and talk to myself. 💭 I have learned that your mental health journey is just as important as your physical journey. They’re one in the same! .
You may THINK you can’t workout or follow a program with guidelines, lose weight, get those abs you’ve always wanted, or heck just find basic confidence again you’ve lost since you can’t even remember when! But guess what… YOU CAN!
You are capable of so much more. Your body is capable of so much more. Its your mind that you have to convince otherwise. But once you do; oh the freedom babe!💕

C) Lisinopril ACE inhibitors
C) Lisinopril ACE inhibitors (end in -pril) have been know to cause angioedema. It is rare (0.1-0.2%). It usually occurs within the first week of use however can also happen after years of taking an ACE inhibitor. When this kind of angioedema happens due to an ACE inhibitor..it is not actually considered an allergic reaction. It is thought to be related to an increased levels of bradykinins (but possibly other contributions as well). African Americans have an increased incidence of developing. Epinephrine, Benadryl, steroids is the treatment course for severe cases. Less severe is generally just discontinuing the ACE inhibitor.

#TuesdayTransformation I let it go. I was ready to vibrate higher and become a magnet for miracles. Now I am in a place where everything feels right. My heart is calm. My soul is lit. My vision is clear. I am at peace with where I have been and at peace with where I am headed 💛👑
