Worked it today. My fellow nurses were sick, too. I kept an n95 on the entire time. Feeling fine.

Blah. The world sucks.

p8712, thanks for what you do.

I hope your fellow nurses who were sick stayed home.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Thanks for what you do, you and all the other healthcare workers. I have several friends and neighbors working on covid wards and ER, and it is pretty bad here. Consolation is less death.

I got my Pfizer booster yesterday,noonish, scrabbled to the grocery store, monthly errands, and my back started hurting. I could not wait to lie down. The typical arm swelling and soreness, ensued. But I have been nauseous, this time, and lying around all day. Not too bad, and I hope it keeps me out of the hospital or doctor’s office.

Not all heroes wear capes. Many wear scrubs and masks!

Thank you p!

I just don’t understand why people can do the basics. Vaccinations and masks aren’t a big deal.

My other half is one of TWO day shift RNs left working the ER. Everyone else is sick. I strongly believe that if we could show the public some kind of de-personalized images/data/stories from that ICU, it would motivate people. See this 40 year old previously healthy person on ECMO? It could be you.

Canada's vaxx rate skyrocketed after they made vaxx proof a requirement to buy booze. If we could find a way to emulate that...

Are you taping up your mask?! Doesn't take much of a viral load with the duration and distance you're forced to deal with.

I thought you found a different gig?

Regardless, stay safe and thanks.
