Six-Word Saturday

"Just One More For The Road!"


Twenty minutes before coming off work this morning, one of the staff approached me to say that Mr. P (not his real name) couldn't breathe. I rushed to the room with the vitals equipment, and counted a full minute of respirations - 12. Not good. But the resident is on Morphine (with specifics), has end-stage Congestive Heart Failure, and is basically on hospice. Long story short, I got him straightened out.

Snags like this RIGHT when you're ready to leave ONE part of yourself to morph into quite another, and reverse and change roles for the day just makes me sigh "Just one more for the road!"

Sorry, I am very new to this LINK and am not quite sure if I had to explain my six words, but I did anyway.

Just one more for the road for you guys, haha! Blessings to you, and do come share yours!!

glad to know you were able to straighten him out Che i am sure it is not easy to look at our patients in pain but the happiness of being able to help them get another chance in life am sure more than rewards the pain.

One more for the road—
not a drink, but draughts of love
for all things comely.

My Six Words

Wow, nothing like thinking you're done for the day and then to be hit with something like that.

You can explain your words. Or not. There's no real rule as long as your six words are clear. I like how you did this - thanks for playing.
