Randomly discovered a Tiki bar on the water like three miles from my house today. I am pleased with this.

Last day getting paid to be a medic for a couple of years. I have sadness. Hopefully nursing will be fun this time.
Didn't know you were quiting paramedic. Are you going back into the hospital as a nurse or are you gonna start doing it on an ambulance like a CCT RN?

Refreshing my nursing experience so I can get a flight job. I'll be working in a surgery trauma burn ICU.

Yeah, shouldn't it be low 40s?

My lowest consistent resting heart rate was 40, though I normally sit around the mid 40s. My BP sucks, though. With excellent diet, minimal caffeine, and heavy running, my BP is 120s/70s. Any slacking on any of those three and I jump to 140s/90s.

Anybody know any good recipes for a novice cook for dinner?

BTW (since that seems to be the primary topic I jumped into lol) my BP has been 120s/70s, pulse right around 60 (I was taught 60-100 was the normal range..)

My mom gets upset, although her BP is similar, her pulse rate is consistently in the 110-120 bpm range. I told her that was better than the one patient who's pulse was 30..

I used to sit in the high 40s low 50s and 90/40s but now it's more like 50s-60s and 100/50-60

You can make what I made tonight! Threw a packet of white onion, red peppers, sweet onions and tomatoes in the oven and cooked it all together with some sea salt and olive oil. Give that half a hour or so and it'll be done.
Took that, sliced a chicken breast in half, stuffed it with the onion mix, grilled it. Topped it with some avocado slices.
Sides were red potatoes sauteed in the left over olive oil in the packet from the veggies and then some fresh squash and zucchini that I just put a little butter, salt and pepper on. Pretty simple and delicious.

Brought the city fire guys up to our sticks district today, they looked pleased for the change of pace and the challenge of how to get a car out from under an RV that were both well off the road. Even if they had an hour response time...

One of the best EMS memes I've seen in a while.
