Wesley and I on our honeymoon!

Monday, April 18, 2011


I was working in the ED when all the tornados came through Sanford, we started getting reports of the Lowe's hardware being destroyed and then we started moving beds, calling extra hands, and preparing for all the people. As everyone started arriving it was like a scene from a movie. The first people were soaking wet, dirt and grass blasted all over them, and several lacerations and injuries. They had been in a ditch when the tornado passed around them. Then people started coming in from various scenes like MVCs and collapsed houses. We sent several to surgery, one was flown out (after the weather cleared) and the rest were treated and sent on their way. It was a crazy scene and there was a lot of damage to the eastern part of NC.

We didn't have too much damage from the storm where I live but a tree limb did break off and fall onto the roof damaging the roof and the ac units. No one in the house was hurt, they were all hiding in the basement!

I'm still here

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. I have been super busy with packing, moving, unpacking, attending orientation for work, and actually starting in the ED. It's been a crazy last few weeks but things are slowly getting unpacked and organized and life is starting to get into a routine that isn't crazy busy. The ED has been pretty good so far and I'll just say I'm so glad the hospital orientation is over!! I'm finally starting on my new craft goal, which is crocheting an entire blanket. And this evening for dessert I'm hoping to make some angry birds cupcakes! I'm so excited, I'll post some pictures when they are done!
