Life of a Nurse

I had an eventful April when I face planted on the driveway of my house, blood from a gash on my forehead dripping steadily drew a crowd (more than 3 people) and they decided to call 911. I, of course as a nurse, commented I’m sure that’s not needed but the amount of blood at that point was hmmm maybe it was a good idea.
