I am so sorry!

I am so sorry that I have not updated my blog in like forever! Things have been quite busy here! I have cought 15 babies so far! I have learned so much in my time here, I never would have gotten this experience in the States. I found out that I seem to have a knack for putting in IV's. I seem to have a fairly steady hand so it is a little easer for me then for some other people. I hope that I can keep in practice at home.

I only have 12 more days until I fly home! I am very excied about that! I can not wait to see my family again. I have made a few friends that I will be sad to leave behinde but with the power of the internet I will be able to keep in contact. One friend in particular I will miss she is juts a little crazy as am I so we can cook up all sorts of things!

We have new students here so we have been covering quite a few shifts as we are short staffed at this time. I will be working 7 days strait next week! But they are all night shift so I really do not mind. Having new students has been fun. We had one get a little light headed on my last shift, she thought that she might pass out. I am glad that she sat down and before she hit the floor.

I can not wait to get into cooler weather! I am ready to be done being hot and sweaty all of the time. I long for the cool nights at home where you just might want to pull up a blanket and drink a cup of hot cocoa. The people here get cold very fast, they will be wearing coats and saying that it is cold when I am thinking that it feels very nice.

There have not been any really bad births and we are all thankful for that! Sometimes we get a little concerned but we have good teachers that will jump in if they see a problem. I did have one momma blow "raspberries" at me one day! I think that she was just playing with me because she was smiling at the time.

Well that is all for now! I better go before my brains start running out of my ears.
