Weight Watchers

  I ordered my weight watchers books so will start that when they come.   I hope it works without having to go to the meetings.  A lot of the nurses at work are on it and Meg has offered to answer all my questions so hopefully will show a downward trend soon again.  My manager gave me this link, says it has lots of info and recipes, Dotti's Weight Loss Zone - Helping You on Your Weight Loss Journey

    I weight in at work again tonight.  I think it will be lower, but I hate weighing in right after supper.  Keep your fingers crossed.

    Work was busy last night, the time just flew by.  Just a big thank you here to all the blood donors out there and all the lab people out there.  I got a patient last night with a hemoglobin of 4.7.   Normal is 14 for a man.  I needed to give him 4 units of blood pronto, but his blood was very hard to type.  They ended up getting blood from 3 different states to give this man.  The lab person worked hours testing blood to make sure it was compatible and it took 8 hours to find the first units to give him.  Giving blood is so important.

Hi, I find going to the WW meetings have helped me lose weight, but if you can't get there, lose weight with a friend, and follow WW recipe's, they are great, and there is nothing you can't eat if you use portion control.
good luck..

Hey I have a question... I always thought if determining a patient's blood type was hard to find, and it was an emergency, they'd use something like O negative... is that not what they do?
Why?
Thanks! :)
