Dec. 1st my wonderful 2yo daughter started preschool half a day. It's been great for everyone in the family! The only down side is bringing home germs. So about a week into this month, we all had colds. I never really kicked it and now, it's advanced to a cough. I called up the office of the PCP I chose on a friend's recommendation for insurance purposes. Told that this MD is not available, but I can see the NP, I gladly scheduled an appointment with Kathy for today.
She asked me if I had gotten a flu vaccine and if so, when and I told her, oh, when I was giving them back in September and October. On hearing that I was a nurse with med surg experience, but I may not go back to that, she inquired if I was interested in Case Management. She's friends with the head of CM at the hospital a mile from my home and is going to email her about me and that I am available to work in April! (I gave birth 9 days ago)
So, this may be the best cold I ever got, if it lands me a superb job, huh?
What Hashgacha Pratis! As I recently told someone, Hashem directs every aspect of our lives, including our careers. BTW besides taking the flu vaccine myself, I made sure that my immediate family got it too- I had one dtr miss a whole month of school in 7th or 8th grade and it put her back a ton, she had too work so hard to catch up. Since then and with the vaccine, she has been relatively symptom free over the winters (Baruch Hashem). The first year of nursery school is like that, always a good idea to have her wash her hands when she comes home, and I am a beleiver in Vit C (esp via citrus fruits). Mazal Tov on your new daughter, May you and your family have only nachas from her!
