About the Book

This particular book was taken from floppy discs from which I recorded nearly daily experiences about what was happening in one adult family home (AFH). The book became much too long, thus I will be writing more books. I will be sharing any profit with an orphanage in Pakistan and with several men spreading the gospel in East Africa. We have been very secure in the USA and are able to perform our duties without interference from the government, other than the people governing AFHs. I truly enjoyed being a nurse; however, I am glad to be retired now. I worked until I was seventy-two years old, becoming disabled from lifting patients for so many years as well as being bucked off horses and lifting one hundred forty pound bales of hay as well as being beaten up by a resident who had a three-year-old mind. She didn't like being told not to go in the laundry room.

About the Author

She was licensed as an LVN in Thousand Oaks, California. Training finished before my Birthday in 1972 at which time I received my license. At that time nurses were just beginning to not wear caps; however Student Nurses had to wear caps. While training in the ER a doctor saw me with a cap on and began giving me orders regarding a very ill child. So much medication per Kilo (the child’s weight). I stopped him and explained I was just a Student and did not yet know what a Kilo was nor what the medication was. I found said doctor a real nurse to take his orders.

I learned very quickly while working in the New Born Nursery to insist that a doctor writing orders no leave until he/she read the orders to me; due to most doctors having very poor handwriting. They were very accommodating. There was one incident, not mentioned in the book that a doctor was sued by the parents of a child. Even though the doctor was not in the wrong; the Judge found the Hospital liable and it was the largest settlement in history at the time. I plan to write about four more books about my years as a nurse.
