And If I Perish: Frontline U.S. Army Nurses in World War II | Evelyn Monahan, Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee
post image

Such an interesting and encompassing account of the activities of the Army Nurse Corps in World War II, from North Africa all the way to Berlin, complete with pieces of interviews and archive photographs.

**Not book related** I just wanted to thank everyone for all of their kind words and virtual hugs ♥️ My husband was discharged from hospital yesterday❣️He‘s still recovering and the doctors are still baffled and do not know what “bug” attacked him. Just happy to have him home 🏠 and hoping to get him back on his feet again!!! Much new added respect for all of the #NursesOfLitsy 🙌🏻💕You guys are super 🌟🌟🌟

Cinfhen Glad to be out of hospital 😷😖 He still has the mystery bug and he‘s still considered “contagious” so we‘re just making sure he‘s hydrated and comfortable.

Cinfhen Thanks so much @arlenefinnigan @LeeRHarry @Kaye @Librarybelle @Crazeedi @KarenUK @GatheringBooks @rohit-sawant @JoScho @Caroline2 @llwheeler @OrangeMooseReads @Eggs @DivineDiana @Jas16 @UwannaPublishme So happy he‘s home and on the way to recovery❤️ my takeaway... listen to your body & trust your instincts! We waited too long and I knew something wasn‘t right. It was a nightmare and I needed to find my voice to advocate. Hubs is stubborn👇🏼 8mo
Cinfhen And convincing him to seek care was almost as difficult. Still don‘t know what virus wrecked this havoc and still looking for answers. 8mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen husbands are like that, yes they are 😉😘❤🧚‍♂️ 8mo

I am so stinkin excited about this bookmark I got for my birthday! The couple I used to work for gave it to me. I had left my job with them to start nursing school and they also know how much I love reading because we were always sharing book recommendations with each other so they combined my two passions and got me this! So thoughtful and isn‘t it just the cutest!!Last year they gave me The Emerald Atlas Series which I loved!!! 👇🏾

BookaholicNatty When you love the people you work for it doesn‘t seem like “work” I miss them but still visit them very frequently. When you work in the health field and make a bond with people it‘s hard not to form friendships and relationships that last a lifetime! So grateful for them! ❤️❤️ 14mo

American Nurse | Carolyn Jones
post image

1. I am the Call Center Nurse Manager at Rocky Mountain Poison Center.
2. My first job was as a certified nursing assistant at a nursing home—backbreaking work
3. My current job has been the best. I never thought about working in toxicology before but I love it! It‘s endlessly fascinating and I love talking to people and helping them.
4. My dream job would be to run a sanctuary for abused and neglected animals.#HelloThursday

HOTPock3tt I‘ve only worked as a RN for 6 years, but I love it too! 🤗🎉❤️ #NursesOfLitsy 1y
wanderinglynn Thanks for playing! 😀 1y

The Mars Room: A Novel | Rachel Kushner
post image

My Book of the Month pick for May. This was the story of Romy, a woman in prison with consecutive life sentences. The novel jumps from present day in the prison, to the past leading up to her conviction, and also focuses on the people she meets along the way. I felt really depressed about the current US prison system the whole book, but I think it was an important and engaging read, and I will be looking to read more Rachel Kushner.

Texreader Great review 2y

HOTPock3tt Hi! ☺️welcome to litsy!! 📚🎉 Its nice to meet you! I‘m a nurse too. I‘ve been a psych nurse for about 5 years. What area of nursing do you work in? #NursesOfLitsy (edited) 2y
jouleian @CindyE09 Oh, sounds like a good read. Welcome to Litsy 😊😊😊 2y

CindyE09 @HOTPock3tt I work in a Neuro ICU, I‘ve been there a little over a year now. I could never do psych though!! (edited) 2y
CindyE09 @Bloomingjen Haha I have that problem a lot too, this one just sounded really good to me so it got bumped to the top of the pile 2y
CindyE09 @CoffeeK8 @VelvetSpade @jouleian @tpixie @JosieG Thank you for the welcome! Everyone has been so nice. 2y
HOTPock3tt @CindyE09 wow!!! I wonder if I could do something as complicated as neuro ICU!! (Or any ICU for that matter!) that‘s awesome!! ❤️ 2y
CindyE09 @HOTPock3tt Haha you work in psych and you‘re calling ICU intense?! I could never do what you do! 💜 (edited) 2y
HOTPock3tt @CindyE09 psych can definitely be intense too! But I think it would be AMAZING to be able to work in the ICU!! ❤️you guys could eventually be on the rapid response team!! It‘s hardcore badassness!! 😎Lol 2y
CindyE09 @HOTPock3tt Haha I am nowhere near ready to be on the rapid response team! Sometimes when things happen I still look around like “can I get a grown up nurse in here?” 2y
DrexEdit Welcome to Litsy! Thanks for the follow. Looking forward to talking books with you! 😊 👍 2y
tammysue Nice review Cindy! 😃 2y
