Past Jobs?

During my 37 years as a nurse I have worked in most every area and loved most of them. My favorites Pediatrics and Obstetrics. Currently using my 'Nursing Informatics' skills to help hospitals implement electronic systems for documentation, billing, etc. It is a nice change from patient care but I do miss that part of nursing. Ayway it beats Picking blueberries and Ironing (dry cleaners) all summer without air conditioning.

Favorite memories of Mercy:

Many great times. I loved all the dances and games, especially the one where the football team won it's first game.
The senior trip to Washington DC was a blast. We even managed to have fun on the retreats.
Bill, our bus driver, always made the commute fun as he went over the Seven Hills of Manorville.

Least favorite or wierdest memory of Mercy:

I blocked his name but there was that priest who sent me to the principals office for sitting with my legs in the aisle. Almost cost me my high school diploma. Sister Mary Brian demanded and apology and I refused. It was the first time I stood up to authority and I like it.

Did you ever get any demerits? How many/what for?

I don't think so. I was too afraid of the nuns to act out. Still am!

High points of your life since High School?

The greatest gift are my sons.
I went on a medical mission trip to Peru recently. It was a great, humbling experience.

Kids? Grandkids?
