Week in Review 9/4/16

This week marks the start of a new semester at my school.  This semester I will be team teaching the Med/Surg I class and doing all of the labs for that class.  I will also be doing clinicals in the Labor and Delivery department in Salt Lake.  Always learning and gaining more education and skills.  It should be a fun semester.

The reading exercises that Robin is doing seem to be helping a little.  She is still really slow at processing the words.  In fact her son, Corbin, has been listening to her read and said, "Is this what it was like when you listened to me learn how to read?  Because it is BORING!"  She will be seeing an ophthalmologist and physical therapy next week.  She is really struggling with anxiety - but (drum roll, please!) she has not smoked since her stroke.  I AM SO PROUD OF HER!  To refrain from smoking while she is dealing with so many other stressors in her life is nothing short of amazing!
