💕🌈🌷Every year I take 2-3 weeks vacation from work to spend time traveling and exploring places with my family. I usually preferred to do it within the month of October and November to celebrate my birthday and my daughter Stephanie’s birthday as well. Last year, during my annual vacation we went to Hawaii for ten (10) days. It’s really our plan to travel annually to enjoy my break from work and do some sort of relaxation but this year we preferred to stay in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Anyway, our stay in the country at Ritz Carlton Hotel at Tahoe is still enjoyable.
🥰Thank you to all who greeted me on my birthday!!! I really appreciate it🎂🎁🎊❤️
💪 Today, I had my first workout at F45 gym in Midtown, Sacramento. I arrived at 10:00 to check in and had temperature check. The class session called Hollywood class has to last for an hour which is a little bit longer than the usual 45 minutes per session. I was impressed by the different equipments and how they maintain their place.
⚡️The workouts were divided into different stations and exercises. The coach will show and demonstrate the different workout activities before you start the actual workout. There were two big TV screens that served as a a guide with proper instructions and demonstration on how to do the exercise. The staff were all polite and accomodating.
😀It was a fun and very enjoyable workout. You can feel and see the focused and dedication of everyone doing the exercise.
💪I will share photos and will surely share more info & blogs on my site later.
👩🏻⚕️ICU Life Update: I love being an ICU nurse and taking care of critical conditioned patients. But sometimes there are some reasons why I don’t like doing it on nightshifts and these are the following:
▫️Taking patients to CT scan, MRI ( especially those with 10 drips, ventilated). ▫️Patients on NICOM protocol which means doing NICOM 4x every hour. ▫️Patients on CIWA protocol, agitated, restless and not sedated and on BIPAP, meaning you can’t restraint them.
🌚Unfortunately, these are the kind of patients I usually get every single time I work... ( hahaha...). There was a time when I made three (3) trips on CT scan for a trauma patient. I have to order an enclosure bed for a patient who constantly climbing out of the bed and do NICOM for patients who are already vasopressor.
🩺These are some of the things I do at the ICU. It’s actually difficult because it’s really a part of the job at the unit but sometimes I asked myself why am I still doing these things? thinking that I have a choice to change into a different assignment, but I still chose to stay. I sometimes come to think of it and realized that it’s not always what you want to do that made you a strong person and successful at the same time.
🌸Sometimes one has to do what she/ he hates to do to realized that facing challenges can make one grow up and become a better, courageous and strong individual. Loving what you hate to do is making one learns to be flexible and be optimistic of what lies ahead. As an ICU nurse, I am exposed to this scenario daily and must always be ready and learn to put myself into it and face whatever life has to offer at the ICU either good or bad and consider them all part of the job. For those inspiring and new nurses, these challenges will always be a part of the job. Learn to accept them, have strong faith in God by believing that you can be an instrument of living a hopeful and joyful life, learn to be tough from it and enjoy every moment of it because you have become part of making other people’s lives from miserable to a more meaningful, useful and productive individuals....
💕 I had a very productive day today. This morning, attended a dance class workout at the park. Then after this I started to upload some tiktok videos. At last, I learned how to combine images and videos in one clip. Then I baked some cookies with my daughter Stephanie and had dinner with my family. I am now uploading new videos on my youtube channel.
🦋I had a lot of realization this time of pandemic and one most important that I realized is no matter how hard life is, how busy you are in performing your duties as a parent and as a nurse as its my job still we must have time for ourselves.
🌟Listening to your heart to the things that you love to do, your passion is one best way of expressing who you are what you want in life and what you enjoy doing even if it is nothing or non sense for orhers for as long as you are experiencing and feeling the joys and happiness of life do it. Life is so short, live life to the fullest before you missed the moments life’s worth is offering us.

It’s been a long time that I haven’t posted anything on my blog. I was so busy with my work on attending to Corona Positive patients which need to sign up for extra shift because of too many number of patients that needs immediate and extra attention and care. ⠀ March 2020- We had the first COVID 19 positive patient in our unit. We also have Patients under investigation (PUI). I should say there was a ratio of 1:1 as to attending nurse in a patient. We don’t recycle our PPE’s. We converted some rooms to negative pressure rooms. We had a safety monitor and we practice airborne, contact and droplets precautions on all patients regardless if they are intubated, on BIPAP, etc. ⠀ 👩🏻💻 Read more: ⤵️ https://pinaynursemeetsworld.com/my-icu-nurse-life-update-covid-19/ ⠀ Follow me: 📺 Youtube : @pinaynursemeetsworld 💻 My Blog: www.pinaynursemeetsworld.com 📱Tiktok: misslittlenars
🌟I started dancing last December 2019. It was not that long yet but I learned so much from joining the dance fitness group called @physiquedancefitness. I’m doing it every day off from work. I love singing more than dancing when I was younger. I can’t believe I will love dancing too at my age. ⠀ 🤽🏻♀️I was never a dancer ever since. During my high school days I am an active member of the glee club in school where talent in singing is the best qualification though a little of dancing too. I am also a member if the library club because I love to read books. Well, I’m not the sporty type but I love to join cheerdancing during sportsfestival in our school. ⠀ 🎗Now, I am starting to enjoy dancing for the reason that I want to be physically fit and healthy. Dancing is a cardio form of exercise. It keeps my heart rate in good condition. It also made me sweat a lot which helps maintain blood sugar. The choreography in dancing makes my brain works for each step I need to execute. This way dancing made me keep goin’, energetic and ready to do my tasks both at work and at home. ⠀ 💕Let’s get connected: 💻 My Blog: https://www.pinaynursemeetsworld.com 📸 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/pinaynursemeetsworld 🏞 Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pinaynursemeetsworld
