Nurses Unite

Miss Colorado's Betty Johnson
Miss America Pageant 2015

For the last couple of days I have been blown away by all the nurses, doctors, nursing assistants, EMT's, Respiratory Therapists, Vet Techs etc that have banned together against the popular talk show "The View".  If you haven't caught their attack on nurses on their Monday show, you can see it below but first see what they're talking about!  They were commenting on Miss Colorado's Talent Performance on the Miss America Contest Sunday night!  See her performance here:

Miss Colorado's Monologue
Miss America Pageant 2015

Amazing.  I watched it live. As a nurse this gave me tears.  I am not "Just a Nurse" either.  I respected her for going out there in her scrubs and showing the world her talent of taking care of the sick.  I was amazed.  Then the next day, Monday, this happened.  I don't watch the show because it drives me crazy but immediately chatter about the show starting showing up on my Facebook Page from all my co-workers who did watch it.  Check out this segment on The View:

The attack

Really?  What did they just say?  This isn't talent?  Is it talent to care for a sick dying newborn baby?  I do it everyday and I believe it is!  As an RN at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the NICU I feel so lucky to love my job and love the babies I have the pleasure to take care of.  I feel like an angel, caring for the sick and sometimes dying.  I am not JUST A NURSE!  I am not wearing a nursing costume either!  Nor am I wearing a "doctors" stethoscope!  I found this photo of me from 30 years ago, holding my "NURSE" stethoscope.

We are nurses and we are
talented at what we do!

Nurses and other health care workers, including doctors are banning together to support each other like we do everyday.  They are all up in arms at the lack of knowledge that these comedians showed the world about what they know about nurses.  Shockingly they stabbed the jugular of the profession and in one minute started such an uproar in the health care community that they are now back pedaling.  Here is the attempt at an apology:

Joy Behar's apology

Check out what she said here...
we all need to take a Valium!

The American Nurse's Association have accepted Joy's apology but it doesn't stop there.  Advertisers are pulling ads from The View.   Nurses from all over the world have banned together in support.  

Here updated daily are the advertisers that have pulled their ads from the show!  Thanks to them for sending a message to ABC:

Johnson and Johnson
Egglands Best
Party City
Scanner Foods
Kimberly Clark
McCormick Spices
All Laundry

I would like to see ABC take a stand as well.  If anything, I believe this has given nurses a platform to reach out and educate others as to exactly how difficult our job really is.  Highlight nurses and have these ladies from The View spend a day in our shoes and then see if they could do it!  I can't begin to express the many trials and tribulations nurses go through everyday to give excellent care to our patients.  I can't begin to list all the many rewards we receive from doing all that hard work.  It humbles me to be part of such a great group of nurses who stand together and support each other.  

Thanks to FOX NEWS for this!

New Kitty

Vladimir our new Siberian Kitten

We are new owners of a little kitty that we named Vladimir.  A strong masculine name for a Russian Male.  He is pure bred kitty who is hypoallergenic.  Many years ago, my hubby had to give up having a cat because of my allergies.  I had asthma growing up because of my cats in my childhood home.  Then last summer we decided we wanted a kitty to join our family and went to shelters but unfortunately I experienced an immediate reaction.  We thought my dream was over.  During a visit with friends a few months later we realized their cat was causing no reaction.  We found out that their cat was a Siberian.  We did some research and found a list of breeders who sell these kitties at TICA.

We checked all the breeders near our home and communicated with everyone.  The nicest lady ended up contacting us back and communicating with us by answering all our questions.  We were able to do a fur test to confirm I was not allergic to him!  The drive to her cattery was 4 hours but we decided it would be worth it because of all her help.  Here is a link to the cattery were we got our kitten:  Inspurrations Cattery.  We are thankful to Jackie who helped us get a kitty into our home that I am NOT allergic to.  These cats have a lower level of allergen in their saliva and are a great choice for those who suffer.   Here is our baby!  He is just wonderful!

Loves his straws!

Dale our golden retriever is not sure what to think
of that animal hiding in the tree.

Our new little helper!!
He wants to be right where we are!

Dale isn't quite sure yet but it's only been 2 weeks
that they have been together!
