I am also starting work at a local hospital on monday. It is a teaching hospital and I will be working in family care. It is a program for residents to learn how to run their own practice. They are working under faculty and board certified docs. Maybe even one of the nurses there or a resident would be willing to give me the shot. I know my godfathers wife will tho. She can no longer practice since she has so many health issues now...fibro, food allergies, celieac (sp?), lyme etc she use to be a pediatric ICU nurse. She still keeps her certifications up though in case she does need to help someone. She is the closest thing my family knows to a saint, she is absolutely wonderful. When I was Dx she was working at the time and in the same hospital I was in. When I was scared of tests I was having she was able to go with me as long as she wasnt "working" so if it was after her schedule, lunch, break etc she would be in the room with me. She actually stayed while I was having my port-a-cath placed since I needed TPN for 12 weeks so my folks could administer it at home...I had already been in the hospital for 6 weeks and wanted out. I went in 2 days before Christmas when I was 8....it was my last year believeing in Santa too. I was so afraid santa would skip my house cuz I wasnt there.
Ugh my belly hurts still even with this dilauded I am going to lay down with my heating pad now.
