bat phone..

today was awesome..

sometimes my job really rocks.. i work in the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit) - and today the coolest thing happened..

we have a special phone on the wall - this phone only rings when some kind of 'baby' emergency is happening.. - today that phone rang.. i was right next to it - and it kinda made me nervous.. we answer the phone and we hear 'get to room 6 stat' - so.. we immediately run down the stairs, and across half the hospital - i know it is wrong... but it was the coolest thing ever.. there we are running across the hospital - everyone is getting out of our way - and we show up and they say, 'good - the team is here' - yes.. i was a part of that team..

we run into a room with a baby who is not pink, not doing much moving around, and not crying.. we do our thing - and it was awesome.. finally we stabilized the baby - hearing a baby cry has never made me so happy.. after that we were off to our next emergency..

it is very cool to be part of the NICU team..
