On Froggydadda's first day as a student Respiratory Therapist...
He did CPR on a woman for 50 minutes.
His first patient had severe Cerebral Palsy and could only communicate by screaming, while FD took his oxygen levels.
FD was offered a job on the weekends to clean respiratory machines. We're still debating whether or not he should take it.
During a break, FD called me and said how amazing it felt to be doing something important, to sit by the hospital beds, watch golf (and he hates golf) with an elderly patient, and to do something well. His RT instructor was super impressed and of course all the nurses were smitten. Back off girls.
The next eight weeks will be incredibly difficult for our family. FD has 12-14 hour days all week (with Fridays off) and may work on the weekends. The question is, how am I to work 25-30hours a week while being the primary caretaker of the world's busiest toddler, without help. Yikes. I'm tired just thinking about it, but incredibly proud of my husband and all he has accomplished.
