Nurse Hitty Eve

In Which I Begin my Nursing Career

About Three weeks ago, the Sunny State  Hittys were surprised to hear that Shirley, our adopted human, was sick.  I am new to this Hitty family, but I was told that aside from some seasonal allergies, Shirley was almost never sick and was free from any aches or pains.

A trip to the emergency room was made and doctors soon determined that it was her gall bladder.

A simple procedure was scheduled to remove it. However, things did not go as planned.  What was supposed to take only 20 minutes turned into a 2.5 hour major surgery.  According to the surgeon, less than 10% of people have a gallbladder situated as hers was and removing it was no easy matter.

The Sunny State Hittys are glad that we do not have such things to deal with and although we are carved with a knife, we only feel the loving touch of our creator.

Shirley had to spend eight days in the hospital, most of them in ICU.  She is home now but in need of much TLC.

As you may know, my carving mom is Amanda, Shirley's daughter.  I felt it only right that I should be her nurse.

Shirley says the best nurses must anticipate the needs of their patients.  They must give care with skill and efficiency yet they must do so with compassion.

I have got to go, my patient helped me write this and now she is all done in.  I must see that she gets her rest.

In which I learn to book surf

by Hitty Alice, Adventurer Extraordinaire

Here are just a few pictures from Emily's poor camera. I helped her pack up all her books in the classroom, load them onto a cart and stack them in the book room. She had to pack everything else up and move it into the center of the room, so that the maintenance men could repaint the walls.

Then she let me ride on the cart, too. I loved to feel the wind on my face as we traveled down the sidewalk. Emily told me it's more fun if you put your hands in the air, so I tried that too. She's right!

If you'll notice
the picture in the background you'll see what most of Emily's pictures look like with her old camera. BUT, a friend came today and brought Emily's new camera with her. So, be ready for more of my adventures real soon!
