Something very sad happened at work yesterday. Our education coordinator was having her going away party. She came in to work and was having a stroke. Apparently, she was getting ready for work, started having the stroke and didn't realize it. She drove all the way from Schenectady which is about a 40 minute drive, pulled the car in but left in in drive and came in with slippers and a dirty shirt on. She was making no sense and the other people that worked in Human resources were trying to get her to sit down and she refused. They called a Code Blue which calls all the RN's to the scene. They tried getting oxygen on her and she became combative etc... Last I heard she was at St. Peter's in the ICU. Its strange how the human brain works. This lady was so dedicated to her job that she didn't even comprehend that something wrong was going on. She just automatically drove to work. Thank God she made it. I hope she will be ok. She is the one who taught my CNA class and helped me become the Wesley employee I am today.
The weather today is supposed to be hot and humid again. I hate this kind of weather. I'm glad I will be at work in the AC. Its payday, thank God. I am out of money. Sarah's father is 3 weeks behind in his support payments. I'm going to have to go back to court and have it taken right out of his check instead of waiting for him to pay me. I am always his last priority instead of the first. I'm sure he still has money for booze. I've heard he hasn't even mowed his lawn yet this year and it looks like a field with just a path going to the front door. I can only imagine what the inside looks like. I hate that Sarah has to go there. Well, bye for now. Linda
