It’s been a while since I last posted something on my Word Press site so today is your lucky day 🙂
Towards the start of this year I mentioned that this year would be a fix it year for me. There were three items I needed to work on that required attention.
First was repairing my 1964 Chrysler Valiant sedan, secondly having my hernia operation, and thirdly looking at my nursing options study wise.
So far things are progressing along quite well except that being on the public waiting list for surgery can be quite unpredictable in terms of knowing the actual date. This makes it hard to plan your future around, but that’s the lifestyle of being dependant of the public waiting system for health needs. During March this year I asked my surgeon roughly of when could expect to have my hernia operation and was told it would be late August to early September. However in the last month I found out that it could be in late December or early next year now. To be honest I have no idea, so when it happens it happens.
In terms of my Valiant I have fairly well repaired it except for some minor welding and rust repairs along with needing two new rear tyres. Last week I kicked over the engine and it is running quite well. I’m glad I have some mechanical knowledge as I have been able to tackle quite a few repairs myself which saved some dollars and knowing that it has been repaired correctly.
With regards to my nursing I have been doing some revision on pharmacology during this second semester as a guest student at uni. There is a possibility that I may be able to complete my final clinical block placement in community health, or a GP practice which wouldn’t be as physically demanding as a high paced hospital ward. Anyway that is something still in the planning stages at the moment.
Before I head off I would like to say that recently I purchased myself a Reconciliation Australia gold pin lapel from http://shop.recognise.org.au/
