I think the end has come for my blog.

Besides for the obvious reason-I don't blog anymore-if I did continue blogging I'd probably have to change my name from FCG to FGG.

I'm finally graduating :)

It's been a long road and I've come a long way from my first day when I didn't even know the difference between sodium chloride and normal saline. Along the way I've learned about more diseases than I knew my brain could hold, given dozens of injections, administered medications, inserted foleys, cleaned gangrenous diabetic foot wounds, watched a c-section, a PICC line insertion, a cardiac catheterization, and laparoscopic cystectomy, did a shift in the NICU, the ER, OR, cardiac unit, pediatrics floor. I've spent countless hours reading, studying, written papers and essays on everything from nursing management to cultural awareness. I've ingested a lifetime's supply of caffeine, made a dozen friendships along the way, and now it's finally drawing to a close.

Of course I'll be going on to take the NCLEX exam and then go for my BSN and then hopefully a masters, but for now I've come to the end of an era. For those of you who have stuck by my side with your endless support,I thank you, and know that I would not have made it without your encouraging words. I look forward to the next stage in my career.

I am sorry that you are ending this blog. I love to read your writing. But I am excited for you and this new chapter you are beginning starting with the letters NURSE... It seems you are still going to add the BSN and MS to the other letters but for now it is great that you can actually pronounce it ;)

You need to blog. Change the name, or something, but keep blogging. You're very good at it.

I know you will be a terrific, attentive, and caring nurse. but you also have incredible writing skills and it would be a shame to not continue writing in some format. change the name of your blog if you must, but there is so much you comment on so succinctly, we'd hate to see your talent not shared....

your great!

your are way too talented a writer to stop now, at the next stage of your life - motherhood, working, etc.

I know you'll be a caring, attentive nurse. but you also have a flair and ease with words that not many people have. don't give up writing - it's your G-d given talent and you should use it.
