hablo un poquito espanol y no comprendo mucho

I have finished orientation at my new job and am now orienting on my home unit. I had the pleasure of taking care of a patient who's primary language is spanish. Poor thing, I got to drag out my spanish and practice it on her. Actually, she understood me and we communicated!! Hot damn, I guess all that spanish I took in school paid off :D.

Anywho... it has been a great week and I am so happy to be back at the bedside with the patients and their families. Like a blog I read today, I feel like a 'fish in the water.' But, now, I've got 4 days off; so, I'm off to screw around.

Happy weekend!!
