The Wonder of a Lab Kit

As it turns out, for only $200 you too could play nurse.:o) I brought home my lab kit today and had a wonderful time unpacking it and looking in amazement at everything it included. It made me realize just how much I am going to need to learn over the next two and a half years to be able to use it all! There were of course a few things that I already knew what they were, but only a few. My aunt and uncle joined in the fun, and were even gracious enough to let me practice a few of my newly acquired skills on them. Thankfully neither of them were permanently damaged in the process, and I hope to use them as test subjects many more times to come during the course of the program. My uncle did ask if the bag I was pulling things out of was the same one used by Mary Poppins, and for some reason he cringed a bit when I started pulling out syringes and tracheostomy tubing.:o) I guess I'll have to draw the practicing line somewhere... They are such a blessing, and just in case I haven't mentioned it enough, I am very thankful for them. Speaking of blessings and being thankful for people, I am going to coffee with my sister tomorrow so I should head for bed. I hope you all had a wonderful week. Hooray for the weekend!

(Btw, does anyone have any hot tips for how to label my stuff so that it doesn't get mixed up with anyone else's?)
