Post-COVID syndrome severely damages children’s hearts; ‘immense inflammation’ causing cardiac blood vessel. Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), believed to be linked to COVID-19, damages the heart to such an extent that some children will need lifelong monitoring & interventions.

  1. I did not expect to see anyone repping E-burg tonight... Especially not while showing off such cool tattoos!

  2. Yes! My coworkers always make remarks about me drinking "full sugar" soda. I can't have any type of fake sugar. Not even stevia. Aspartame will give me a migraine within half an hour, stevia will cause one within the next 4 hours. I use the caffeine as a mid day wakeup.

  3. Awww! My dog does that lay down stalking staring when she sees a dog she really wants to play with... Though it usually freaks them out. Poor pup, no one understands the herding dogs.

  4. Take a Basic Life Support class. 3 hours and around $60 will teach you CPR, how to use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), and the proper way to perform the Heimlich Maneuver. They teach adult, pediatric, and infant BLS in one course.

  5. I'll add, lock your arms when doing CPR and use your abs to push down. You will last longer and perform better cpr. It's how my skinny ass does better cpr than the guys I work with (we have one of those simulator dummies that shows you how good your cpr is)

  6. A proper instructor should already be teaching that method. Use your hips, press with your whole upper body, and keep your arms straight. Compressions to the beat of Stayin' Alive or Another One Bites the Dust, depending on your musical preferences.

  7. Or Baby Shark! But, yes instructors should be teaching that method... But the amount of people I see pushing with their arms is astonishing.

  8. 11th grade biology class our teacher showed us a bunch of the image tests used for color blindness while we were learning about how genes pass. One of my best friends started to get weirded out and thought we were pranking him, turns out he was SUPER color blind and had no clue. Our teacher felt bad that’s how he found out so I think she gave him a gift card or something hahaha!

  9. Had a coworker who I knew was color blind. He asked me which lab tube to use for a certain test and I just looked at him and said "uh the lime green top tube" and treated him like he was ridiculous for not remembering this common lab test tube. An hour later I remembered he literally couldn't tell the difference between all the lab tubes in our lab drawer. I still feel like a jerk about it.

  10. I only do that if I'm being paid OT. Either that or they schedule it on a day I work. There is nothing in my contract about having to do anything work related on a day off.

  11. Ah I really miss getting paid every other week because of the 3 paycheck months. I know yearly it ends up the same, but it feels like a free paycheck (cause I used to budget based on getting paid twice). Now I get paid the 10th and the 25th.

  12. Going directly into my “get out of Texas” category. (Planning for a 2022 escape back to the PNW—selling a house and moving 3000 miles is expensive!)

  13. Come back to the PNW! Though... It is expensive here. A friend just bought a house in Texas for $80k. That house in Seattle is $800k.

  14. Would you mind describing your experience with Botox? Where do they inject you and what kind of side effects did you have?

  15. Not op, but I have the neck tension with my migraines too. I started Botox and let me just say I wish I had started doing it years ago. They inject above my eyebrows, temple, right above my ears, the suboccipital area, down the back of my neck, and around the shoulders. They always have a little leftover in the vial and I have them inject a few very specific spots that cause problems. I haven't had any side effects, but it sounds like having a temporary dropping eyelid or a "Spock" eyebrow could happen. They also said if it is done too frequently, you can develop antibodies to the Botox and then it just won't work (more frequent than every 3 months). The hardest part about it was insurance, but I've tried so many migraine treatments that it went through pretty quick for me.

  16. PNW nurses. As we enter the season of unending darkness...

  17. This was a video my mom got of her first seizure in 2018. She just had a second one today. Her first one we figured was from dehydration, but today she was just hanging out on our porch and suddenly looked like she couldn't get her legs to work correctly. It only lasted maybe a minute or 2 and she was drooling and panting really hard, but then came out of it and was back to normal. Freaked me out. I think I am going to take her to the vet, but would they diagnosis epilepsy or start meds when her two seizures were two and a half years apart? She is 6 years old now. Do seizures get more frequent as Aussies get older?

  18. I just did the same! It's my first paycheck since starting ynab, and it feels super anticlimactic. I usually am super excited about getting paid, but this paycheck is already sorted out into my categories. I don't even feel the fact that I get to skip a month of rent... But I bet after a few paychecks it will feel better. Especially because I started ynab halfway through the month.

  19. Pay off the car first (no need to wait until 2021). Without a car payment you'll have even more money (and you might be able to change your car insurance to a cheaper plan, now that you're not beholden to the lender).

  20. I have a pension that I am vested in at my job, though it is based on how many years I work at this job. I have a 401K (or maybe it's a 403B) through work, but they don't do any matching. Should I just use the Fidelity account through work or get something on my own, like Vanguard? I also have no idea to do pre-tax, post-tax, or a mixture of both...

  21. If you already have an account with Fidelity it's probably easiest to just keep using them -- you already know their system and web site and stuff.

  22. The fact that she allowed the CHAZ to go on for 3 weeks until they came to her house suggests she was OK with it. Oh and people got shot and killed and she still didn't order the dismantling of CHAZ until they came for her personally.

  23. Yeah, "allowed" is a pretty strong assumption. Couldn't figure out how to shut it down without reason is more like it. And the shooting where the guy was killed? It was a gang shooting that was going to happen regardless of if CHOP was there or not. Again, I was there. Doing CPR on that guy.

  24. Didn't know how to clear the area? Ir was cleared in an hour at the beginning of July.

  25. Yes, because she had a reason. That and the volunteer security and medics warned everyone the day before and helped people get their stuff and get out to prevent more police brutality (like what had been seen before they vacated the east precinct).

  26. I've been here for a while and this season was my first run in with the GIANT HOUSE SPIDERS.

  27. I am totally fine with all the garden spiders, the wolf spiders that live in the garden rockery, and am even on decent terms with the spiders that string webs across my path (provided they aren't sitting in the middle when I walk through them)... But one comes into my house and crawls over my couch and appears next to my head? Oh I'm out of there and it dies by my husband's shoe.

  28. "Spider Season" must be a Seattle thing. I've lived here my whole life and it never occurred to me that it might be regional. But my friends in other parts of the country/world have no idea what I'm talking about.

  29. Oh, I never realized that either! I just saw a giant one in my house and they was my second thought. My first thought being every curse word I know jumbled into one. Then I called my husband (from the other room on my cell phone) and requested he come kill it.

  30. Yes - when I decide it’s bedtime - I lay down and goto sleep. Several times hubby has woken me on purpose to check that I wasn’t fooling him - sometimes it takes less than a minute? ( and yes we get 8-9 hours a night - I’ve always been like this )

  31. There is also someone I knew who did this, but it was diagnosed as hypersomnia. They would be tired a lot and even though they could get to sleep fast, they were getting enough... REM sleep? Something like that.

  32. I do think 67 is past/close to the territory of mandating regular driving tests though. We shouldn't assume someone is incapable of driving at that age, but I do think it's fair to think they may be entering some form of decline -- especially if they were already a weak driver.

  33. Also, 67 is the age when people are allowed to retire and draw social security and Medicare... So there are plenty of 67 year olds still in the workforce... Think about that older ICU nurse working 12 hour shifts and somehow hasn't messed up enough to be fired...

  34. "I keep getting mixed up on how much warfarin I am supposed to take on different days" -says the sundowner who's INR is 7.

  35. Travel nurses how much are you getting paid?

  36. Oh, travel nurses can make bank. California pays well baseline, NYC was paying really good mid pandemic. Just have a decent agency and really learn how to negotiate your contract and it can be good. Also taking the living stipend and staying with someone you know for free. Or have an RV.

  37. Update, I found out my lease payout is the $18k. So definitely going to sell it with Vroom for $21k.

  38. Free money is free money! Though, check the five print. I had an employer who offered a similar match, except the wording was tricky. It actually meant if I put in 5% of my paycheck they would match 8% of that 5%. So I was thinking it would be 8% of my income they would match. It turned out to be more like 0.4% of my income... But hey, it's still free money.

  39. Absolutely have a signed and notarized DPOA on file at the hospital and one that you keep in a secure place at home. That way if anything happens to your SO you are the one who can make his medical decisions. Also, with the forgetting things/brain "damage"... Liver failure leafs to a buildup of many different things, but specifically ammonia and it can cause encephalopathy. That basically makes people act like they have dementia, confused and out of it. It is not permanent, they give something called lactulose that reduces the level of ammonia on the blood. So maybe he was getting a little encephalopathy, or just regular ICU delirium, or MIL was lying.

  40. Yes, just one time using Tylenol at too high of a dose can kill your liver. I used to work on a liver transplant unit and it happens way more than you would think.

  41. It's really hard when patients don't take their doctors advice and actually listen to truth. I always think why do they cover to the hospital if they don't want treatment, or in this case don't believe covid is real. I wonder the same thing about Jehovah's witnesses who come in with a main issue of a GI bleed. I've definitely been down in IR trying to stop the bleeding and then coding a Jehovah's witness all because they won't have a transfusion. We see things happen that are unavoidable, but we also see things that happen because people make poor choices.

  42. Yes! Well said. The best way to cure ICU delirium is to transfer patients to the floor. That is something that will mess you up for a long time, even if you were previously a fully normal person.

  43. They had a 2 hour event time plus pre ER plus 12 minute flight. I guess they figured they already were past the window it was better to get more stable.

  44. That's great that the flight crew is giving you updates. Especially in those types of codes it can give a bit of help with closure.

  45. Yes, they did say that. But there's been times in my career I've seen the interventionalist hold off on a STEMI for other reasons, like very low hgb, active bleeding, prior films showed stuff we can't fix, sepsis, etc. I've worked in many places where we waited for rosc before transporting to table. Before covid got bad the lab I was at in Bend was giving all stemis lytics until we got a negative result (pretty sure they've changed that by now).

  46. Yeah, it can be pretty provider dependent. We didn't do lyrics on STEMIs, we just did everyone on airborne precautions.

  47. My two are fascinated by my lack of penis. Youngest regularly announces to strangers that he has a long pipe like a hose pipe and mummy has a short pipe so it's like a hole. He's also asked me in front of said strangers how big my hole is and then estimated its size using both hands. Eta:thank you for the gold, my first ever one is about my genitals!

  48. My kid has told random people that "mommy has a beard, but it's in her pants"... Clearly I've embraced my inner 70's woman during quarantine.
