What I've been up to
I haven't been posting as much as I would like. Our new wireless connection has been really flaky the last week or so (ever since I got here). So sometimes I'll try to post, but it gets screwed up because the connection drops. If anyone has info. on how to troubleshoot wireless systems I'd appreciate it.
But the bad network isn't the only issue. I've been making a major adjustment to working in the hospital - a regular 8 to 5 job that has really changed the way I do business. I'm used to bein g a student and setting my own hours. I'm more tired at the end of the day than I expected. Pastoral care is harder work than people might imagine.
All in all, however, things are going well. I'm getting a good feel for how the hospital runs, and I'm getting to know patients and becoming more comfortable entering rooms and starting conversations. Due to federal regulations, I will not be able to post any stories from the day on this site (so as to protect privacy), but I will be able to post my reflections here. I hope to get into a more regular schedule next week after I've finished opening the boxes that still sit to my right as I type.
The peace of the Lord be always with you!
